Van Basten resigns

Marco van Basten has informed CEO Rik van den Boog that he has decided to resign as head coach of Ajax. He cites as the main reason that he has come to the conclusion that he has not achieved his goals and that he does not have the feeling that he is capable of improving next season.

The remaining training sessions and the final match will be under the guidance of assitant coach John van ’t Schip.

Van Basten (44) started as Ajax's head coach on 1 July 2008. Before that, he was the Holland coach for four years and coach of Young Ajax for one season.
