Ajax seek assistance from KNVB, UEFA and FIFA against AS Roma

Ajax will seek the aid of KNVB, UEFA and FIFA to force AS Roma to deliver the contractually agreed bank guarantee for the transfer of Cristian Chivu.

Ajax have decided to take this step because of the failure of AS Roma to deliver the agreed, irrevocable bank guarantee on time.

Only upon receipt of the bank guarantee Ajax will release the player.

Ajax will refrain from any comment and will make no further announcements about any possible steps in the future.
