NEWS: Overmars signs on for four more years

Marc Overmars has agreed a new contract with Ajax as Technical Director. The former Oranje international has signed for four more years at the Eredivisie champions.

Overmars will remain at Ajax for the next four years as Technical Director

“I am delighted that I am now fixed into this position for four years” said Overmars to De Telegraaf. Previously, the former Arsenal winger had stated that he would have also preferred to extend his contract on a yearly basis.

In the interview with the newspaper, Overmars looked back and discussed his first year as Technical Director in Amsterdam.

“Our dealing in the transfer market has gone fairly well so far, although we would have liked to keep some of our talent. But despite the departures of Jan Vertonghen, Vurnon Anita, Gregory van der Wiel, Theo Janssen and Andre Ooijer we were still champions again, and that is very comforting that we coped with these losses.”

For the next season, Overmars has a lot to examine with head coach Frank de Boer. “What do we offer?  I like to turn it over to Frank and ‘say what you want’, then we can look how to improve the team. And we will do this for the next four years.”
