Ajax Amsterdam have promoted Marcel Keizer from their reserve team and named him new head coach to replace Peter Bosz, the club announced on Saturday.
The 48-year-old was signed last year to coach the second side, who compete in the second tier of Dutch football and finished the season as runners-up, and has been handed a two-year contract with the senior team.
Keizer coached previously at SC Cambuur, where he also spent most of a playing career that started with just four appearances for Ajax’s first team in the 1987/88 season.
Bosz departed after one season in charge to take over at Borussia Dortmund in Germany having taken Ajax to the Europa League final in May, where they lost to Manchester United in Stockholm, and second place in the Dutch league behind Feyenoord Rotterdam.
