Erik ten Hag’s Ajax replacement facing sack after players ‘revolt’ against him

Erik ten Hag's replacement at Ajax is facing the sack after his players reportedly turned on him.

Alfred Schreuder took the reins at the Dutch side when Ten Hag departed to join Manchester United last summer. But his time at the Eredivisie Champions is on the brink of coming to an end as players no longer have faith in his leadership, according to De Telegraaf.

The Dutch publication claim Ajax's players were asked by mental coach Joost Leenders how they felt about Schreuder and his staff. And shockingly, the majority of the team raised their hands to reveal they were unhappy with the coaching collectives methods, it was added.

Ajax languish in fifth place in the league and haven't won any of their last six matches. And the squad aren't confident that Schreuder can turn things around.

The damning verdict on Schreuder came after Ajax were held to a 1-1 draw by league leaders Feyenoord last Saturday.

It's been a campaign to forget thus far for Ajax who are on the verge of finishing outside the top two for the first time since the 2008/09 season.

And if they don't manage to pull themselves to the summit of the table, they'll miss out on a spot in the Champions League. Ajax's current plight is a far cry from the success that Ten Hag brought to the club.

They won three consecutive titles under the Dutchman before he joined the Red Devils. And they suffered another blow when Ten Hag brought Anthony and Lisandro Martinez with him to Manchester.

But Ten Hag has no time to reflect on the turmoil his old side is facing as he's embroiled in a fight at the top of the Premier League to try and get United into the Champions League at the least this season. The Red Devils are in fourth place, level on points with Newcastle who are in third, after their narrow 3-2 loss to Arsenal on Sunday.
