As a player, youth coach and since 2012 Marcy director, Marc Overmars has significantly coated the successful history of Ajax Amsterdam. Now the commitment of the former offensive star ended with a bang.

Marc Overmars will lay down his post and leave Ajax Amsterdam with immediate effect. The men from the Dutch capital reported on Sunday.

Overmars has sent a few female employees of the club “for a long time a series of inappropriate news”, it is said explanatory in a statement of the association.

“It is a dramatic situation for everyone involved in every way,” commented on the members of the Supervisory Board Member Leen Meijaard. “It is devastating for the women who had to deal with this behavior. As we have heard of it, we have therefore acted immediately and sophisticated with the help of an external expert, which is best.”

Overmars perhaps the best Marcing director who had ever had ever, but unfortunately have exceeded “really boundaries, so a further employment is not an option,” it continues. Overmars also viewed that.

“Behind for everyone who lies ajax at heart”

A statement that Overmars themselves underpinned in the message: “I’m ashamed. Last week I was confronted with reports about my behavior. And how that arrives at others, unfortunately I did not realize that I was exceeded a border, but that was made me clear, “said the 48-year-old. And on, “I apologize for my behavior, which is especially unacceptable for someone in my position. I see it now too. But it’s too late. I do not see any other way to leave as ajax.”

Overmars’ former teammate and today’s AJAX board leader Edwin van der Sar stressed, the situation is “horrible”. In the future, you will be increasingly paying attention that something does not repeat. “We work here at Ajax to something very wonderful, so this message will be a blow for everyone who is ajax at heart.”

The contract of the ex-national player would only expelled at the end of June 2026.
