Dutch newspaper AD are reporting that Ajax are now 12 points behind leaders PSV and this could well be the first time that they have not won the Dutch League since Frank de Boer took over the club in late 2010, after Martin Jol resigned from the club.
Frank de Boer – to give clarity on his future soon
The Eredivisie club are said to be getting concerned about two different things – one is they don’t want to lose Frank de Boer who has been linked with the job at Newcastle but has not come out specifically and said he wants the job.
They would also like to sign their players to long term contracts, which is difficult if they don’t know who the manager will be.
Ajax were beaten 1-0 at Vitesse on Sunday and tonight they lost 1-0 at home to AZ, so it’s looking very doubtful they can win the Dutch League this season, with PSV winning 2-0 at NAC Breda on Tuesday.
After the defeat tonight de Boer says he will quickly give some clarity on his future at Ajax, and it seems that’s what the Dutch club wants – we assume one way or the other.
However they would like some certainty in the current situation, since the fact that he may be leaving the club in the summer is causing some unrest at the club and even among the players.
Newcastle are just one of the clubs linked with Frank de Boer this year, and he has also been linked with a possible move to Barcelona, if their current coach Luis Enrique is dismissed at the end of the season.
There has been reported tension between him and top player Lionel Messi.
It seems that Ajax are pressing Frank for a decision on his future, and of course they’d like him to stay but if he is to move on they want the process of finding a new coach to begin immediately.
So we could soon be seeing a statement from the former world-class player very soon, on what his intentions are.
It would be something if Frank says his intentions are to leave Ajax.
