Maarten Stekelenburg must have hoped that Sir Alex Ferguson was not watching when he dropped the Eredivisie league trophy off the top of a bus.
Hailed as a potential successor to Edwin Van der Sar at Manchester United next season, the Ajax goalkeeper's reputation for having safe hands was tarnished as the trophy slipped from his grasp.
The team were celebrating their first league title since 2004 after a dramatic last day of the season that saw them beat and then topple FC Twente.
Frank de Boer's side beat FC Twente, formerly managed by Steve McLaren, with a 3-1 victory at the Amsterdam Arena thanks to a brace from Siem de Jong.
Stekelenburg's slip is not the first time this season that a footballer has dropped a trophy with Sergio Ramos losing control of the Copa del Rey as Real Madrid celebrated their cup success.
