Erik ten Hag’s successor has been appointed.

Ajax have hired Alfred Schreuder as the new head coach.

The 49-year-old Dutchman has signed a two-year contract with the Amsterdam club.

Scheruder was assistant coach at the club back in 2018 and 2019. Subsequently, he became head coach of Hoffenheim before becoming assistant to Ronald Koeman in Barcelona.

For the past six months, the coach has been in charge of Club Brugge. Andreas Skov Olsen must therefore have a new coach in the Belgian club.

– To become head coach of Ajax is an honor and a great opportunity that I will seize with both hands. I am also excited to return here because I enjoyed the year and a half I was at Ajax, says the upcoming coach.

Edwin van der Sar, director of Ajax, says he sees Schreuder as a strong tactical coach.

In recent years, he has gained experience as a head coach and as an assistant coach in top clubs in different countries and tournaments. We have great faith that he can continue down the path we have chosen in Ajax in recent years in both the Honorary Division and the Champions League.

The Dutchman’s predecessor Erik ten Hag has scored the coaching job at Manchester United.
