Ajax Have Some Of The Best And Loudest Away Fans In World Football

We've already seen Bob Marley's 'Three Little Birds' song ring around Ajax's famous Johan Cruyff Arena, a moment that involved Bob's son, Ky-Mani, and now their incredible away support have given us more reason to love the Dutch support.

In the club's 1-1 draw against Bayern Munich on Tuesday night, Ajax's faithful away support rocked the Allianz Arena by jumping up and down for the majority of the Champions League tie.

Noussair Mazraoui equalised for the Eredivisie side in the 22nd minute after Mats Hummels bagged in the opening four minutes, which left the travelling support in hysterics.

This isn't the first time Ajax fans have hit the headlines for all the right reasons of late.

In their previous Champions League tie, this time at home against AEK Athens, Ky-Mani Marley, one of 11 acknowledged children of the late reggae music icon, sang some of his father's iconic song on the pitch for all of those in attendance at the Johan Cruyff Arena.

There he was, in his Ajax shirt, making some everything felt alright and that the fans weren't worrying about a thing. He and the fans teamed up for a rendition of 'One Love' but when the performance of 'Three Little Birds' was something else.

If you don't get goosebumps watching it, then there's something seriously wrong. It's just wonderful stuff.

42-year old Ky-Mani has developed an affiliation with the Amsterdam club.

Last month, he was in attendance to see Ajax trounce FC Emmen 5-0 and received the most perfect welcome from the fans.
