Legendary duo on Ajax board

Johan Cruyff and Edgar Davids have been elected to the Ajax board of directors.

The 64-year-old former Ajax and Barcelona coach Cruyff, ex-Holland midfielder Davids and three other new members replace directors who announced their resignation in March following a disagreement with Cruyff on how to run the club.

"The planned AFC Ajax member council meeting took place on Monday evening in the Amsterdam ArenA,'' read a club statement.

"During the meeting, the member council agreed with the nomination committee's proposal to place five candidates on the list for appointment for the board of AFC Ajax NV.

"The recommended candidate commissioners are Steven ten Have (probable chairman), Paul Romer, Marjan Olfers, Edgar Davids and Johan Cruyff. These last three enjoy the special trust of the AFC Ajax association.''

Shareholders must now formally accept the new board members at a general meeting in August.
