On Tuesday, Ajax Amsterdam formalized the departure of its general manager Edwin Van der Sar on its Twitter account: "You have embraced the role of general manager with the same vision that defined and punctuated your days as a player. We are eternally grateful. Ajax legend one day, Ajax legend always! ».
The legendary Ajax goalkeeper from 1990 to 1999 joined the Lancers in 2012 first as marketing director and then general manager in 2016. In seven years, Van der Sar's track record has been rich: three Dutch league titles (2019, 2021, 2022), two Cups (2019, 2021) and a national Super Cup (2019).
