I take it Ajax fans aren’t happy. Can’t say I know much but I’ve seen nothing but disappointment regarding this.

TBF if I was an Ajax fan, any new coach would feel a downgrade from ETH.

Why is everyone bald.

We didn't have this many bald people when there was no hair transplant available.

Surprised with this appointment as he only took over as Club Brugge manager in January.

Was part of Ronald Koeman’s assistant at Barcelona and we all know how that went!

His CV isn't exactly glittering. Assistant at Hoffenheim, assistant at Ajax (under Ten Hag), sacked after one season at Hoffenheim as their actual manager, assistant in Koeman's trainwreck of an operation at Barca, and has now managed Brugge for 5 minutes after their manager left in January.

Seems an odd one.

I was wondering why they have a pic of ETH in that tweet before I looked closer

Can’t say I’m sad to see go him despite him very likely now, bringing home the league after our bad season start under Clement. He organised the side well and turned things around but we’ve remained poor going forward with the most expensive squad in the JPL. Could be the quality of our forwards though which will be a lot better at Ajax. Surprised Ajax were in for him, feels like a bad fit.

Ajax fans are fine with it, because the hiring strategy is sensible and transparent.
Because Ajax also lost their DoF Overmars, they wanted to have a Dutch head coach, which limited them to:
  • Slot
  • Bosz
  • Schreuder
Slot has a 7 million buyout clause and Lyon also made it clear they weren't looking to let Bosz go for free.

Schreuder was ETH's assistant during the CL semi final season and he's winning the title in Belgium with Brugge as a head coach this year. Style of play is fairly similar to ETH's.

They've been stuck at the middle of the table the whole season and tbh this project isn't showing any progress either, his time is ticking.
