After discussing with the AFC Ajax board of directors, Johan Cruijff has decided to step down from his position on AFC Ajax NV’s Advisory Board, on a date which is still to be determined by the board of directors.
A new Advisory Board needs to be appointed in the short term. In Johan Cruijff’s point of view, this is critical as a period in which decisions about the upcoming season need to be made is coming soon.
At the request of the board of directors, Cruijff remains available for the club in a different role, in order to see through the implementation of his football vision for the club. The board is pleased and will soon be discussing with Cruijff how this role can be fulfilled.
