Ajax Cape Town have finally roped in Jan Versleijen to their technical team after weeks of delay, but he is not the coach.
Timeline of Ajax coaching saga:
In an interesting move, Versleijen has taken over as head of technical affairs – a position that was recently vacated by Jan Pruijn, who has since taken over as head coach.
Pruijn took over as head coach following the departure of Maarten Stekelenburg and Ajax CEO George Comitis reveals to KickOff.com that he will continue as head coach.
"Versleijen has been appointed as the technical manager of the team, that's the position that was vacated by Pruijn," Comitis confirms.
"Versleijen has signed for until the end of the season and Pruijn will continue as coach," he adds.
