After winning four consecutive Eredivisie titles from 2010 – 2014, Ajax have now gone two seasons without silverware and replacing Frank De Boer with Peter Bosz in which seems a backwards step for the club.

Developing these sort of top class players led to Ajax winning four consecutive Eredivisie titles but since the likes of these players have left, Ajax have struggled to win silverware and are set to lose more of their top players.

Viktor Fischer has already left for Middlesborough and with speculation over the futures of Arkadiusz Milik, Joel Veltman and Mitchell Dijks means Ajax continue to struggle to keep their star players and if this keeps happening they could be waiting a while until their next Eredivisie title.

The recent appointment of Peter Bosz is a clear step backwards and shows a lack of ambition for the club. Having not won any silverware over the last ten years, is this the man to take Ajax forward? Despite being manager of the best club in Israel, Bosz failed to win the Israeli Premier League to the surprise of many. The Dutchman will have to gain the trust of the dressing room as well as doing his best to keep his top players, to give him the best chance of winning silverware in his first season. If he fails to win the Eredivisie, he must lift wthe KNVB cup and provide a good showing in the Champions League.

With the players Bosz has at his disposal he should be competing for the Eredivisie title and if he fails to win any silverware in his first season could show that Ajax are moving in the wrong direction.
