Johan Cruyff has won a major battle in his efforts to stop Louis van Gaal from becoming the general manager of Ajax. Louis van Gaal recently took over as the general manager of Ajax. He is the person who does not get along well with Johan Cruyff. Johan Cruyff is regarded as a legend that Ajax for the way he has shaped the entire history of the club not only as a player, but also as a manager as well. It is thought that the arrival of Louis van Gaal will make Johan Cruyff less powerful at the club. As a result, the former Barcelona player was extremely keen on preventing Louis van Gaal from becoming the general manager of Ajax.
He has now won the court case, which has come in favour of Johan Cruyff. According to the judgement, Louis van Gaal will be stepping down as the general manager of Ajax. In a strange development, Johan Cruyff also announced his resignation from the post as the sporting director of the club. However, he is expected to be reinstated as the sporting director of Ajax due to the fact that most of the Ajax board are unofficial supporters of Johan Cruyff and his ideologies.
“The coaches from the training centre are all former club players. I’ve always been 200percent behind this project and I maintain that it’s very important for the club,” said Cruyff in a recent interview. Johan Cruyff’s decision to stop the arrival of Louis van Gaal at the club was backed by more than 15 of the club’s staff at the training centre. Cruyff has been the centre of Ajax for more than 30 years now. He was influential in providing power to former players like Dennis Bergkamp, and it seems that the arrival of Louis van Gaal would have reduced his powerful at the club.
