Ajax suspend manager Keizer, assistant Bergkamp

Ajax suspend manager Keizer, assistant Bergkamp”

One day after being knocked out of the Dutch Cup, Ajax fired coach Marcel Keizer following a mediocre first half of the season, the Dutch soccer club announced on Thursday.

AMSTERDAM (AP) - Ajax has provisionally suspended coach Marcel Keizer and two of his assistants, including former player Dennis Bergkamp, and will start talks about ending their contracts.

Ajax announced in a statement that Reiziger would be assisted by his No. 2 at Jong Ajax Winston Bogarde - another former Holland, Ajax, Milan and Barcelona defender - but who is best remembered by English fans for an ignominious spell with Chelsea at the end of his career.

The team from Amsterdam is second in the Dutch league and will play Willem II at home on Sunday.

Ajax appointed the relatively inexperienced Keizer in June following the departure of Peter Bosz for Borussia Dortmund after a single season.

"The club management does not have enough confidence that the ambitions of Ajax will be realised with them".

Ajax, last crowned Eredivisie winners in 2014 under Frank de Boer, lost a two-legged Champions League preliminary tie against Nice before being denied a place in the Europa League - which they were runners-up in under Bosz last term - by Rosenborg in August. "With Dennis Bergkamp, exists a difference of opinion about the technical policy to be implemented".

Dennis Bergkamp has been sacked by Ajax in a decision overseen by former Arsenal team-mate Marc Overmars, the Dutch club's director of football, and Manchester United icon Edwin van der Sar.

"From a sporting point of view, European elimination [from the Champions League preliminaries] was the low point".

'In particular Marc Overmars (technical director) and I have frequently spoken the months afterwards about the permanent volatility of the first team.

He said management "has insufficient confidence" that the current side "will reach the level we expect from them" under Keizer, Spijkerman and Bergkamp.
