Ajax wants to use a model as is customary in England and Germany, writes Het Parool. A construction with a sporting director, with a head of recruitment underneath, for which Julian Ward is currently in the picture.
The sporting director must monitor the sporting line of the club. The head of recruitment takes care of the transfer policy and directs the scouts. With this construction, Ajax wants to split the position of technical director in two.
Maurits Hendriks is currently the right man to guard the sporting line of the club as sporting director. The intended head of recruitment is Ward, with whom, according to Algemeen Dagblad, talks have already started.
This intended new working structure should lead to a recognizable sporty line when compiling the selection. Something that was not the case last summer, during the transfer period, the newspaper outlines. The departed players were taken in by players with a completely different profile. For example, Ajax brought in Calvin Bassey to replace Lisandro Martínez.
