In a sensational twist of today’s sacking of Newcastle United’s Chris Hughton, his former best bud on his Premiership CV, ex Spurs manager, Martin Jol has resigned from his role as Ajax coach.
Ajax Under 19 coach Frank de Boer will take over till end of 2010. Former Ajax & Holland star Frank Rijkaard expected to be the new manager. So Roy Hodgson can breathe a sigh of relief up at Anfield tonight.
Jol had a mixed reception at Ajax and one prominent Dutch football Twitterer, @raymond verheijen said tonight…
‘It was a matter of time but tonight Ajax manager Martin Jol has resigned. So, hopefully from next week Ajax will start play football again.’
But the word in Holland is out that Jol is shortly to be back in business in the Premiership. At St James’ Park.
