Ajax and Schreuder part ways
Ajax's recovery session took place under the guidance of John Heitinga. The 39-year-old coach replaced Alfred Schreuder, who was removed from active duty after the match against FC Volendam Thursday evening.
Their second home match in the new calendar year again did not yield a win for Ajax. After the draw against FC Twente (0-0), there was another tie on the scoreboard against FC Volendam: 1-1. Ajax fell to a deficit in the second half, but Mohammed Kudus equalised ten minutes before time.
Ajax has removed Alfred Schreuder from active duty with immediate effect. The managers contract ran till June 30, 2024, but has been terminated. The disappointing results and lack of development within the team are the main reason for this decision. The management of the club is not longer confident about their agreement. Assistant coach Matthias Kaltenbach’s contract will also be terminated with immediate effect.
As on Sunday against Feyenoord, the match with FC Volendam in their own Johan Cruijff ArenA on Thursday evening also ended in 1-1. After a torrent of Ajax attacks, Volendam opened the scoring after just under an hour. Substitute Mohammed Kudus equalised in the 80th minute. This left Ajax without a victory for the seventh-straight league game.
Ajax are already preparing for their next footballing task. On Thursday night, FC Volendam are the opponents at the Johan Cruijff ArenA. On Wednesday, Alfred Schreuder's squad worked through their final training session at de Toekomst sports complex.
