The 48 year old, Marcel Keizer will be taking charge fully from July first after doing a good job last season in the second division Jong Ajax, second place in Holland's second tier last season.

"From the moment we started looking for another coach, Keizer was the most suitable candidate,'' Ajax chief executive Edwin van der Sar said.

"It's appropriate for Ajax to look internally for a replacement, in the past many coaches have been appointed from within their own club.

"He knows the players, the set-up and is behind the philosophy of the club. In addition, he has shown great promise last season with some excellent play."
