Brilliant Ajax Fans Bring In The Cash For Busker Playing Club Anthem

Brilliant Ajax Fans Bring In The Cash For Busker Playing Club Anthem

'You'll Never Walk Alone', 'Blue Moon', 'Glory Glory Man United' - most clubs have a song or chant which is synonymous with them.

For Ajax, it's Bob Marley's classic, 'Three Little Birds'. 'Don't worry about a thing / 'cos every little thing / is gonna be alright'. And it would appear that was true as, despite a possible threat of Lyon comeback, the Dutch club held on and progressed to the Europa League Final.

They'll now face Manchester United in the final in Stockholm on May 24.

But maybe the victory, on aggregate, was also influenced not just by the lyrics, but by their good-will gesture to a busker on the streets of Lyon prior to the game.

The fans, whilst enjoying a few bevvies before the game, were entertained by a local busker and his guitar.

It was then requested that he play the club anthem, to which the busker duly obliged - and in doing so, he was greeted by great reception.

Wearing a hoody, with a shaggy beard, and slightly ripped shorts, the busker was then swamped with the generosity of the Ajax fans who started to rain some cash on the gent.

Fan after fan put coins into the collection, and the busker became clearly overwhelmed by what was happening.

What goes around, comes around. And clearly, from an Ajax perspective, that resulted in a 5-4 aggregate win and progression to the final for a chance to lift some major silverware.

As for the busker, maybe this is the start of some big things for him. A 15-year-old street musician from Doncaster was recently flown across the world to be on TV.

Alfie Sheard only busked to earn pocket money, but after a video of him on social media went viral he soon racked up three million views.

One of those viewers was American comedian and chat show host Ellen DeGeneres. She was so impressed that she invited the teen to appear on her show. He did so, in California, and even got a signed guitar from former busker, Ed Sheeran.

Keep your eye out for Davide Le Busker (false name) very soon.

Veel geluk in de finale, Ajax (Good luck in the final, Ajax)!
