After talks with Ajax’s directors it has been agreed to dissolve the coaches contract with immediate effect and De Boer is now a free agent.

De Boer said in a statement, “After winning four league titles in succession was the 2014/15 season a disappointment. That we wanted to rectify last season, we have done everything. But it is not become what we all hoped and expected. ”

“I started getting more to realize that it was time for something else.

“It’s better for me and I think also for Ajax. What I will do, I do not know yet. A year without a club is also an option, I’ll see what comes my way. ”

In his six years with Ajax, De Boer won four league titles but the last two years have been barren for the club with PSV Eindhoven beating them to the Eredivisie trophy twice. The fans have become restless with De Boer’s management, and the former defenders exit may have come at the right time.
