Ajax will replace Manchester United-bound Erik Ten Hag with Alfred Schreuder as new manager. 

Schreuder will be signing a two year contract that starts after this season and will end June 30, 2024. 

The agreement contains an option for a third season.

Ajax CEO Edwin van der Sar said concerning Schreuder, "We know Alfred as a tactically strong coach with good and versatile exercise material. 

These last years he has gained experience as a head coach and as assistant coach at top clubs in various countries and competitions. 

We have a lot of faith that he will give a good continuation to the path we have chosen at Ajax these last years. In both the Eredivisie and the UEFA Champions League."

"I'm also happy that we now have clarity concerning this important position within the club. The selection of the first team will also be shaped in the coming period. Gerry Hamstra and Klaas Jan Huntelaar, who also spoke to Alfred, are working very hard on that matter."

After the agreement was reached with Alfred Schreuder, He said, "Becoming head coach at Ajax is an honor and a great opportunity, that I will grab with both hands. 

I’m also excited to return here, because I enjoyed the one and a half years I’ve worked at Ajax very much. I wish to win prizes here in Amsterdam, with a team that plays attractive football. 

With a good balance between experienced top players and very big talents. But first I want to end the season with Club Brugge successfully. I want to say goodbye with a title, that is very important to me and I will do my absolute best to accomplish that."
