However that revolution is now starting to crack with Wim Jonk, who was in charge of youth development, leaving the club last week after reportedly being forced out over his views on how the club is run.

Now Cruyff has taken to his De Telegraaf column to announce his decision to no longer act as an adviser to Ajax after being dismayed with how the club is being run.

Cruyff wrote, “I quit,”

“For years I have noticed that the core of my vision within Ajax hasn’t been followed up.

“In addition, I increasingly got the feeling that this has been done deliberately, and I do not play games.

“Of course this feels like a raw deal. I’m just a director and I had high hopes that the whole thing would be in good hands with a few experienced drivers.

“Those in charge at Ajax must sit together and look first at themselves (and) make sure it will be fine, but it will not happen under the umbrella of the Cruyff-plan, because my name will not be there any more.”
