Twente claim maiden Eredivisie title

A 2-0 win at NAC Breda was enough for FC Twente to seal a first Eredivisie title since the club's formation in 1965.

Steve McClaren's side, who are now assured of a place in next season's UEFA Champions League group stage, had enjoyed a nine-point lead at the summit earlier in the season, but they went into the last round of matches just a solitary point clear of AFC Ajax. The Amsterdam giants triumphed 4-1 at NEC Nijmegen to keep up the pressure, but it was not enough to steal Twente's thunder.

The story is too old to be commented.
