At the meeting for Members Council and Board of Ajax, with the complete Advisory Board present, it was established that a breach of trust occurred between Johan Cruijff on one side, and Steven ten Have, Edgar Davids, Marjan Olfers and Paul Römer on the other. During the meeting, Cruijff confirmed that he was no longer prepared to work towards repairing this breach. This has several consequences for the functioning of the Advisory Board.
At the same time, the current board, Uri Coronel, Joop Krant en Cor van Eijden, has decided to formally cease functioning as Ajax’s board as of tomorrow, Monday November 21, 2011. On March 30, 2011, they had announced that their positions would become available. The new (interim) board members will be named at the next Members Council meeting.
