The Guardian has reported that Johan Cruyff, former player and manager of FC Barcelona, is set to “lose his role on the supervisory board at Ajax,” the Dutch club where he first shone as a player and later took on as manager. The Ajax members’ council gave a vote of no confidence to the five-man board, which along with Cruyff also includes Edgar Davids, Steven ten Have, Paul Romer and Marjan Olfers. The turbulent state of affairs at Ajax emerged after a dispute between Cruyff and four other members of the board over the appointments of Louis van Gaal, Danny Blind and Martin Sturkenboom as directors of Ajax. Cruyff said that he and 10 club coaches will take legal action because the board did not consult him about a major appointment. In a detailed story on ESPN Soccernet, you can read about the saga unfolding at Ajax and how at the centre of it are two people with two diverse philosophies: Cruyff and van Gaal.
