After the sacking of Marcel Keizer and his assistants Hennie Spijkerman and Dennis Bergkamp, Ajax set their sights on Ten Hag and Schreuder. They reached an agreement with Utrecht for Ten Hag late last month but had been locked in negotiations with Hoffenheim for Schreuder.

However, on Friday, Ajax confirmed that an agreement had been reached with the Bundesliga side and Schreuder is on his way to Amsterdam. The coach has decided to return to the Netherlands to be closer to his family, who didn’t move to Germany with him.

Schreuder told the Hoffenheim website, “I am grateful to TSG Hoffenheim for the experiences I have gained in one of the strongest competitions in the world.”

Schreuder had previously been an assistant with Vitesse and FC Twente. The 45-year-old also had a year in charge of Twente before leaving for Hoffenheim in 2015.
