Vitesse 1-0 Ajax

Frank de Boer
Ajax boss Frank de Boer has been a target for Liverpool and Tottenham in recent years

Ajax remained nine points behind Eredivisie leaders PSV Eindhoven after losing at mid-table Vitesse.

PSV extended their lead on Saturday as goals from Jurgen Locadia and Memphis Depay in the final six minutes give them a 2-1 win over Willem II.

Ajax failed to cut the gap as Vitesse's Uros Djurdjevic scored a fantastic goal, chesting the ball, flicking it past a defender and smashing home.

Frank de Boer has won the title in each of his four years as Ajax boss.

The Amsterdam side, who faced 25 shots - a record under De Boer in the league, have now lost three Eredivisie games this season, as many as they did in 2013-14.

Vitesse are up to 10th with the surprise victory.
