The Dutch Cup final between PEC Zwolle and Ajax was delayed on Sunday amid a rather dramatic display of flare throwing from Ajax fans.

Dutch media outlet 433 produced an impressive photo, translated and described here by @football_oranje.

Apparently, Edwin van der Sar was sent out to calm the Ajax fans down and get them to stop disrupting the match (click on images to see full version).

And if this quote is to be believed, he didn't mince words.

Not exactly the start anyone would hope for in a cup final.
