Due to Steijn's departure and Maduro's new role, Dave Vos will temporarily take on the role of assistant coach of the first team. Yuri Rose will lead the Ajax U23 team during the match against Roda JC on Friday.
Ajax and Maurice Steijn will part ways with immediate effect. The club management and Steijn have agreed that the coach will step down from his position. Steijn (Den Haag, November 20, 1973) transferred from Sparta Rotterdam to Ajax this summer and signed a contract until June 30, 2026.
