The Beautiful Moment Ajax Fans Sing 'Three Little Birds' Infront Of Bob Marley's Son

Bob Marley's 'Three Little Birds' has been anthem for Ajax fans for a considerable amount of time but it had extra significance when the home supporters belted it out yesterday.

That's because Ky-mani Marley, one of 11 acknowledged children of the late reggae music icon, was in attendance at the Johan Cruyff Arena for Ajax's 5-0 trouncing of FC Emmen.

He was there in his Ajax home shirt and the home fans gave him the most beautiful welcome - bursting into a rendition of his father's hit tune when he flashed up on the screen. It's really beautiful stuff.

In May 2017, during their run to the Europa League final against Manchester United, Ajax supporters hit headlines for their brilliant gesture to a busker.

On the streets of Lyon, their semi final opponents, the busker was playing songs on the 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.
