Club Brugge manager Alfred Schreuder was appointed head coach of Dutch giants Ajax on Thursday, replacing the massively successful Erik ten Hag, who is leaving for Manchester United.
“Ajax, Club Brugge and Alfred Schreuder have reached an agreement about a transfer to Ajax,” the club said in a statement.
Schreuder, 49, will take the helm at the Netherlands’ most successful club next month, with his contract running until 30 June, 2024.
“Becoming head coach at Ajax is an honour and a great opportunity for me, which I’ll grab with both hands,” said Schreuder, who worked as Ten Hag’s assistant in 2018.
“It’s great to be back, because I had a great time at Ajax for the year-and-half I worked at the club,” he added.
