Ajax hire Peter Bosz to replace the departing Frank de Boer

Loans and criticism aside, much of the credit for Vitesse's success is owed to their innovative manager, Peter Bosz.
Ajax have announced that Maccabi Tel Aviv manager Peter Bosz has signed a deal to replace Frank de Boer at the Eredivisie club.

AMSTERDAM -- Ajax has signed Peter Bosz as their new coach, replacing Frank de Boer who announced earlier this month he was leaving the club after nearly six years in which he won four Dutch league titles.

Bosz, a former player and technical director at Ajax's arch rival Feyenoord, is leaving Maccabi Tel Aviv to join the Amsterdam club on a three-year contract.

In a statement late Tuesday, Bosz said it is an honour to join Ajax. He said: "I am very ambitious and so is Ajax."

Ajax director Edwin van der Sar says that in Bosz, Ajax has hired a coach "who can make our talented squad even better."

Ajax finished second behind PSV Eindhoven in the top flight Eredivisie season that has just ended.
