Hoffenheim's Alfred Schreuder to join Ajax as Erik ten Hag's assistant

Alfred Schreuder had been working alongside Julian Nagelsmann at Hoffenheim.

Hoffenheim assistant coach Alfred Schreuder is leaving the Bundesliga club to take up a similar role with Ajax.

The 45-year-old Dutchman, who has been assistant at Hoffenheim since October 2015, will link up with new Ajax boss Erik ten Hag in Amsterdam.

Hoffenheim said in a statement on their official website that former Feyenoord and NAC Breda midfielder Schreuder, who spent his entire playing career in Holland, asked for his contract to be terminated.

"Only a few days ago, the 45-year-old Dutchman requested the termination of his contract, which was set to last until 30th June 2019," the statement read.

"In their search for a new coaching team, Amsterdam-based club Ajax had Schreuder at the top of their list. Schreuder will join the club and 48-year-old head coach Erik ten Hag with immediate effect."

Schreuder added: "It is with a heavy heart that I leave TSG. I am very grateful for all the fantastic experiences I was able to gather here at one of the best teams in the Bundesliga."

Ajax said on their website that Schreuder would soon sign a two-and-a-half year contract -- until June 30, 2020 -- to become Ten Hag's assistant.
