‘That 12-1 against Vitesse was unique’

Sjaak Swart has played 463 competition matches in his Ajax career, in which he scored no fewer than 175 goals. But, strangely, Mister Ajax’s name is missing on the list of scoring players who made history on May 19, 1972, when they defeated Vitesse at home by 12-1. Forty years later, that score is still an Eredivisie record.
