Editor's note: The new season has not yet fully opened, and the return of the Champions League needs a longer wait. During this period, the author will use a series of stories to tell the stories of those European kings in the past two-thirds of the century. They are either recognized dynasties in football, or they will achieve supremacy in a short period of time, or they will use the triple crown to write supreme glory... and behind every piece of history, there are controversies and glory shadows. These stories are fascinating. .
With the development of football commercialization, resources are increasingly concentrated in the top leagues, and people's eyes are mainly focused on the top giants. But in addition to the five major leagues, there is a team that has had great success. They have won the Champions League four times in history, second only to Real Madrid, Milan, Liverpool, Bayern and Barcelona. The number of titles is even better than Juventus and Inter. There are many traditional giants such as Manchester United, and even today they can become a spoiler in European football.
Yes, this great team is called Ajax. Nearly half a century later, the legends of Cruyff and full defense are still circulating.
In the ancient times of football, Dutch football seemed to have been a desert until the birth of Cruyff and the full defense in the 1970s, which made the tulips bloom proudly. It was during that period that Ajax ushered in its own dynasty.
After the birth of the great all-offense and all-defense tactics, his inventor Michels led a large number of genius superstars led by Cruyff to the stage of history. After the Eredivisie won the title in 1966, Ajax embarked on a six-year dominance journey. Because most of the players were young and vigorous at first, coupled with the immature use of tactics, they lost to Charlton in 1968 and 1969, Best's Red Devils Manchester United and AC Milan led by Rivera.
During this period, Ajax also emerged with many other stars, but because Cruyff was so dazzling, the names of Neskens and Keizer appeared not so shiny. Neskens, known as the "Shadow of Cruyff", whether in Ajax, Barcelona or the Dutch national team, he is Cruyff's perfect partner. And Kaiser is Ajax's striker, he and Cruyff and Neskens formed the offensive trident of Ajax at that time. When a generation of talented players appeared, Ajax finally took to the center of the stage.
In 1970, Feyenoord became the first Dutch team to win the Champions League, and the kingship was completely transferred to Ajax. That year, Ajax defeated SVV 8-0 and won the Dutch championship, officially opening their reign in the Dutch and the Champions League.
From 1971 to 1973, under the leadership of Santa Cruyff, Ajax won the Champions League for three consecutive years, creating the second dynasty after Real Madrid. In 1972, it was Ajax’s In the Grand Slam year, it includes all the champions of high-level competitions-the Eredivisie, the Champions League, the Dutch Cup, the European Super Cup and the Toyota Cup. It is an unprecedented five crowns. However, as time passed, the perfect Ajax was also worn away by time.
从1971年到1973年，在圣克鲁伊夫（Santa Cruyff）的领导下，阿贾克斯（Ajax）连续三年赢得了冠军联赛，创造了继皇马之后的第二个王朝。 1972年是阿贾克斯（Ajax）在大满贯赛事中，它包括了所有高水平比赛的冠军，包括Eredivisie，冠军联赛，荷兰杯，欧洲超级杯和丰田杯。这是史无前例的五冠王。但是，随着时间的流逝，完美的Ajax也会随着时间的流逝而逐渐消失。
Michels went to Barcelona after winning the first Champions League trophy, but the core player Cruyff still guarantees that the team can win the Champions League consecutively. In 1973, Cruyff also went to Barcelona, at the same time, "Mr. Ajax" Swat announced his retirement, left winger Piet Kaiser announced his retirement in 1974. The first volcanic eruption of Ajax ended with this energy, and the monopoly was broken by Eindhoven.
Although Ajax has not been able to monopolize European football for a long time like Real Madrid, their story has long been deeply rooted in the hearts of the people. In the Champions League final for three consecutive years, they have defeated Panathinaikos, Inter Milan and Juventus, which can be described as high gold content. Nearly 50 years ago, Cruyffs used this formation, and the entire team used the width and depth of the field to play football. Together, Ajax and the Netherlands opened the best era under the philosophy of all offense and defense.
In the 1974 World Cup, the Dutch team headed by Cruyff made their way to the finals and eventually lost 1-2 to the German team led by Beckenbauer. This was the first and last World Cup that Cruyff participated in. Session. During that period, Ajax was hailed as a European giant, and Dutch football became a world-class team. Although it has never won the World Cup, it has the reputation of "uncrowned king". This sexy is unmatched.
After the end of the dynasty, Ajax fell into a silence that lasted for two decades, and a new era began in the mid-1990s. In 1993, Rijkaard returned to Ajax and became the lead of their rise. They first won the 1993/94 season and returned to the UEFA Champions League, and then advanced all the way in the 1994/95 UEFA Champions League. With Kluivert's lore before the end, he defeated dynasty founder AC Milan and won the fourth Champions League trophy in team history after 22 years.
In such a team, there are Van der Sar, Rezig, Brand, Rijkaard, Frank De Boer, Seedorf, Kluivert, and Davis, who will shock the world in the future. Players, they might have created another dynasty. It is a pity that in the same year that Ajax won the fourth European championship, the "Bosman Act" was promulgated. As a result, Ajax, which relied on youth training, was unable to retain players due to its small league, and its strength was greatly reduced. , And then gradually decline.
However, adversity can't make Ajax's soul disappear. This team, which will be all on defense, has always delivered top stars to European football. Before the fall of the Eredivisie, the three Dutch Musketeers consisting of Rijkaard, Gullit and Van Basten all came from the Ajax youth academy. After the Bosman Act, Ibrahimovic, Suarez, Ned and other top stars have all left their footprints in Ajax, which has also left Ajax with the reputation of Europe's first arsenal.
但是，逆境不能使Ajax的灵魂消失。这支全力以赴的球队一直为欧洲足球提供顶级球星。在Eredivisie倒台之前，由Rijkaard，Gullit和Van Basten组成的三名荷兰火枪手都来自阿贾克斯青年学院。 《波斯曼法》颁布后，易卜拉欣莫维奇，苏亚雷斯，内德和其他一些顶级巨星都在阿贾克斯留下了足迹，这也使阿贾克斯享有欧洲首个军火库的美誉。
In the 2018/19 season, Ajax became the biggest dark horse in the Champions League, eliminated Real Madrid, Juventus and other favorites all the way, and once again broke into the semi-finals. If it were not for Tottenham’s miracle in stoppage time, they might have written a new legend. That team has young talents such as De Jong, Dericht and Van der Beck. Although it was divided up by the five major leagues after two seasons, people always believe that Ajax can create the next golden age.
The dynasty era may be gone, but Ajax will never die. The story about them, pure and beautiful, constitutes a beautiful landscape in the football world. How can such a team not be exciting?
