Ajax appoints Ten Hag’s replacement

Eredivisie champions Ajax quickly advanced to replace Erik ten Hag with Alfred Schroeder.

The 49-year-old currently manages Club Brugge in Belgium and is preparing to sign a two-year contract with the Amsterdam-based club, according to transfer coach Fabrizio Romano.

But the tactician downplayed the links after being asked about the same thing after the match against Al Ittihad.

“I don’t have an answer to this (Ajax links), I’m fully subscribed to Club Brugge. I can’t deal with those rumours. We don’t know what’s going to happen in the future. Is Ajax champion? I heard it. Lovely for them.”

Schroeder was a former assistant at Ajax (2018-19) and more recently with Barcelona under Ronald Koeman, and also participated in several Dutch clubs including Feyenoord, NAC Breda, and Vitesse as a player.
