Ajax Currently Sitting 17th in the League
The defeat left Ajax sitting 17th in the Eredivisie table with just five points from seven games, just one point above the relegation zone. Steijn had overseen a total of 11 games in all competitions, winning just two of them.
Steijn Was Prepared to Stay
Despite the abysmal state of the club, Steijn had told reporters on Sunday that he was prepared to stay at the club to help turn things around.
Ajax Board Had a Different Idea
However, the club’s board had a different idea and decided to sack Steijn. They will need to appoint a new coach before Thursday, October 26, when they are scheduled to take on Premier League club, Brighton in the Europa League group stage.
Steijn’s sacking is a sign of the desperation at Ajax. The club has not won a major trophy since 2019 and is now in danger of being relegated from the Eredivisie. The new coach will have a big task on their hands to turn things around.Share on Facebook «||» Share on Twitter «||» Share on Reddit «||» Share on LinkedIn
