Feyenoord star completes bizarre hat-trick 72 HOURS after first scoring in abandoned game as he makes history vs Ajax | The Sun

AJAX'S behind closed doors game with rivals Feyenoord ended in disaster with the Amsterdam club falling to a 4-0 defeat.

And in a bizarre twist, Santiago Gimenez completed his hat-trick – the first ever to be scored by a Feyenoord player away to Ajax – 72 HOURS after first scoring in the abandoned tie.

Dutch giants Ajax are a club in complete crisis with chaos in the boardroom and among fans.

Their game against Feyenoord on Sunday was forced to be abandoned after fans threw flares onto the pitch and brought the game to a halt.

While the referee tried to get the game going again, more flares were thrown onto the pitch soon after and the game was eventually deemed unsafe to continue in the 55th minute.

Ajax fans are in open revolt against the club due to their poor start to the season which saw them sitting in 13th after four games.

After the game was called off, fans broke into the Johan Cruyff arena in a riot that had carried over from the end of the match.

The rioters caused extensive damage to the stadium and police on horseback had to be called to put an end to the chaos.

Fans have criticised the board's transfer policy in particular, while manager Maurice Steijn is also the target of the fans' intense scrutiny,

Sporting director Sven Mislintat paid the price for the team's poor start and fan ire when he was sacked by the club on Monday.

The Dutch FA ordered Sunday's game to be resumed at 3-0 in the 55th minute today in a behind closed doors match.


A hapless Ajax side did not look even close to making a comeback and Feyenoord were able to add another goal four minutes into the resumed game.

It was a third goal in the game for striker Santiago Giminez, meaning he managed to complete a hat-trick over the course of three days.

Ajax's latest loss leaves them hovering two places above the relegation zone in 14th place.

They have won just once in their five games played this season and currently sit on five points.
