CEO Edwin van der Sar, along with technical director Gerry Hamstra and his right-hand man Klaas Jan Huntelaar, were present at the signing. Schreuder’s appointment marks a return to Ajax for the man from Barneveld, having already worked as an assistant coach for ten Hag from January 2018 to mid-2019. During that time, Schreuder helped bring home the double as the team also reached the semifinal of the UEFA Champions League.

Schreuder joins Ajax from Club Brugge, where he won the Belgian league last season. Before the new head coach started working in Belgium, he was at both TSG Hoffenheim and FC Barcelona. For the latter, Schreuder acted as an assistant to former Ajax coach Ronald Koeman.

The new manager emphasized his excitement for the task at hand, "Becoming head coach at Ajax is an honor and a great opportunity for me – one I’m eager to seize." Schreuder is very ambitious and strives for success. "I would like to win trophies in Amsterdam with a team that plays attractive football. With a good balance between experienced top players and the many great talents."

Ajax began individual training sessions this week without those who featured in international matches. The 2022/2023 season will officially start on Thursday with a day of testing. One day later, group training will resume under the direction of Schreuder. Next Monday team heads to training camp in De Lutte. Saturday, July 2, they will return to Amsterdam.
