Ajax hire Peter Bosz to replace the departing Frank de Boer
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.
