Bosz and Traoré return to familiar ground

Bosz and Traoré return to familiar ground

Peter Bosz will return to familiar ground on Sunday.  Ajax’s current coach was in charge at Vitesse for two and a half years as of the summer of 2013.

Bosz coached his last match in the Gelredome on December 18, 2015, when Vitesse defeated FC Twente by 5-1.  As the coach of the visiting team, he was somewhat less successful in Arhem.   At the coach of Heracels, he didn’t win a single Eredivisie match at Vitese (G2, V3).

Fortunately, statistics don’t offer any guarantees.  Also, the current Vitesse coach, and former team mate at Feyenoord, Henk Fraser, has a mediocre track record against Ajax.  The former defender hasn’t won a single one of his six competition games against Ajax as a coach (G1-V5).  His teams – Vitesse now, and previously ADO Den Haag – didn’t manage to score in their last four games against Ajax.

Bertrand Traoré, just like Bosz, has a history with Vitesse.  The forward from Burkina Faso played in a total of 42 competition goals and scored sixteen goals for the Eredivisie’s currently seventh ranked team.
