Alfred Schreuder is a top candidate to succeed Erik ten Hag at Ajax. At least, that’s what club watcher Mike Verweij of De Telegraaf says. It is currently quiet in the Amsterdam camp regarding the appointment of a new trainer.
Immediately after Ten Hag’s departure to Manchester United became public knowledge, the names of Club Brugge coach Schreuder and Peter Bosz fell as successors. “The only development there is now is that it is deafeningly quiet,” says Verweij in the newspaper Kick-Off Football Podcast of the morning newspaper. “Time is also taken, because they still have some time. But they should not wait too long.”
According to the journalist, Schreuder is the most important person to take over from Ten Hag. “Schreuder is simply very good on it. That is also the main candidate,” he says. “But there is also talk with others, because you have to have a broad picture. In the end they will end up with Schreuder.”
Verweij is supported by Valentijn Driessen. “The fact that it is quiet now does not mean much. You know that Ajax is busy and that there is a list.” Driessen knows that every club has a list of potential trainers from the moment a trainer is appointed. In this way, it is possible to switch quickly, if it does not work between both parties. “Schreuder is very high on that.”
