AJAX FROM ERIK TEN HAG TO ALFRED SCHREUDER
Since the 1999/00 Dutch Eredivisie season, PSV Eindhoven and Ajax have a combined 19 of the 22 titles; PSV Eindhoven (10), and Ajax (9).
Feyenoord, AZ Alkmaar, and Twente (1 each)
PSV Eindhoven went on a 4 title-winning streak from 2005 to 2008.
Ajax went on a 4 title-winning streak from 2011 to 2014 and could’ve repeated their streak the COVID-19 pandemic forced the canceling of the 2019/20 Dutch Eredivisie season.
What impact will the managerial change have on Ajax’s title defense season?
Erik ten Hag took over Ajax at the midpoint of the 2017/18 Dutch Eredivisie season when Ajax’s most recent league title was in the 2013/14 Eredivisie season. He won the league title in all the full seasons he managed Ajax.
With Erik Ten Hag off to Manchester United, Ajax will be defending the Dutch title under new manager Alfred Schreuder.
Schreuder as an assistant manager has won the Dutch Eredivisie with FC Twente (2010) and with Ajax (2019). He comes back to Ajax after managing Club Brugge to the Belgian First Division title.
