Dutch giants confirm new head coach

Ajax have announced they have appointed the experienced Maurice Steijn as their new head coach for next season.

The Dutch giants have been without a manager since they fired John Heitinga earlier this month and have moved early this summer to improve on a disappointing third-placed finish last term.

Amsterdam-based outfit appoints new manager

In an official club statement, Ajax confirmed that Steijn has signed a three-year deal until 2026 and his first press conference will be streamed live on YouTube to fans this afternoon at 14:00 Dutch time.

The 49-year-old overachieved hugely at minnows Sparta Rotterdam last season, leading the Castle Lords to a fantastic sixth position in the Eredivisie.

Explaining his decision to appoint Steijn, Ajax’s new Director of Football Sven Mislintat said: “With all the clubs he worked for, the results exceeded the expectations. So, he has shown multiple times with his teams that he is a real overperformer. He is ready for a step up, I’m sure of that.”
