Ajax have appointed former Netherlands international midfielder Peter Bosz as their new manager.
Bosz, a former player and technical director at rivals Feyenoord, arrives at Ajax from Maccabi Tel Aviv, who he led to the runners-up position in both the Israeli league and cup after joining the club in January.
Bosz has signed a three-year deal to replace Frank de Boer, who left Ajax after they were beaten to the Eredivisie title on the final day of the season by PSV Eindhoven.
"It's a good time for me as a coach. I'm very ambitious and so are Ajax," Bosz said in a statement released by the club.
Ajax director Edwin van der Sar said the 52-year-old's philosophy suited the team.
"In Peter Bosz, we have a trainer that can make our talented squad even better," said the former Manchester United goalkeeper.
"The clubs he has coached always played attacking football and that suits Ajax. Peter is experienced and has a clear vision."
Meanwhile, De Boer, who won four league titles in his six seasons in Amsterdam, has been linked to the vacant managerial post at Everton.
