Ajax star knocks over league trophy, attempts to cover it up

World of Sport

Ajax defender Daley Blind was so keen to get his hands on the Eredivisie trophy after the Dutch giants clinched the league title on Sunday that he got himself into trouble.

Blind thought he would have a cheeky touch of the silverware as he walked past it, only to accidentally knock it off the stand.

With a sheepish grin on his face, the Ajax player swiftly replaced the plate, hoping that no one was looking.

Sadly for Blind, however, the cameras all picked up on the incident and his embarrassment was compounded.

Still, the gaffe did not take away any of the glory for the defender as Ajax sealed their 32nd Dutch league title following a 5-0 win over Willem II Tilburg to complete an historic hat-trick.
