Since Erik Ten Hag left Ajax at the end of the 2021/22 season, Ajax has been in crisis. In January this year, they parted ways with captain Alfred Schreuder and the team only finished in 3rd place.
This season, Ajax is led by 49-year-old strategist, Maurice Steijn. Their performance is even worse than before.
Accordingly, in the match in the last round 9, Ajax lost in the trip to Utrecht, the previous team was at the bottom of the table with only 3 points.
This loss caused Ajax to drop to 17th place in the rankings while the Dutch National Championship only has 18 teams. The most traditional football team in Tulip has so far only gotten 5 points after 7 rounds, with a record of 1 win, 2 draws and 4 losses.
This bad result causes Ajax’s board of directors decided to fire Maurice Steijn. Journalist Fabrizio Romano quoted the official announcement from the club: “Maurice Steijn has been fired and he is no longer Ajax head coach, the club confirms.”
