Ajax lost again.
Ajax dropped to 17th place in the Eredivisie after a 4-3 loss to last-place Utrecht in the ninth round of the Eredivisie at the Hallenbad in Utrecht, Netherlands, on Sunday (Oct. 22). It’s the worst start for Ajax in their last five games, with two draws and three losses.
They’re also in last place in the league with five points from seven games with one win, two draws, and four losses, one point off the bottom and a whopping 22 points off first place Eindhoven.
With 36 Dutch Eredivisie titles, four Champions League quarterfinals, and a perfect 16-0 record in the group stages, the Dutch league’s top team has been on fire this season.
They’ve spent a whopping €100 million on transfers. However, the team failed to qualify for the Champions League this season due to the poor performance of coach Söderer, who was fired, and legendary player Daley Blind was released as a free agent.
After parting ways with Heynckes, they hired former Sparta Rotterdam coach Maurice Stein. However, his incomprehensible personnel and tactics have resulted in only one win this season. Even in a rebuilding season, a 15th place finish in the league is unacceptable.온라인카지노
Ajax also hired Sven Mischlintat as director of football, but the club opened an investigation into a potential conflict of interest related to recent player signings by a German agency that holds a stake in Mischlintat’s personal company. Ajax finally parted ways with Mischlintat on May 25.
In the end, the departure of the aggressively invested Obermars and Vandessar, the club’s failure to qualify for the Champions League after spending a lot of money on transfers, its current 15th place finish in the league, and the current situation with Michelinthaat have worn thin on the patience of Ajax fans.
German media outlet Sky Sports Germany reported on March 25 (local time) that “fans of Dutch record champions Ajax Amsterdam interrupted the match against Feyenoord Rotterdam. Feyenoord was already leading 3-0 at the time of the interruption.
Already in the first half, Ajax fans caused chaos with fireworks, flares, and smoke bombs, and when sparks flew onto the pitch again in the 55th minute, the referee stopped play.
Rioting eventually broke out in front of the stadium, with some fans clashing with police and throwing objects. Players and coaching staff from both teams stayed in the locker room, and the media were not allowed to leave the stadium for security reasons.
The game against Utrecht was also interrupted twice. “The match between Ajax and Utrecht had to be suspended twice as tensions reached a fever pitch,” Sports Bible reported.
Ajax supporters continued to protest their club’s shabby performance, and in the 89th minute, with the score tied at 3-3, referee Dennis Higler stopped play after throwing a plastic cup onto the pitch.
With 11 goals and 16 conceded, Ajax are conceding too many goals. If they don’t continue to perform like this and reduce the number of goals they concede, they will have to worry about relegation.
