Super Eagles left-back Calvin Bassey’s head coach at Ajax Alfred Schreuder has been sacked.
Schreuder was fired after a 1-1 draw with Volendam on Thursday extended his side’s winless run to seven league games.
Schreuder was appointed on a two-year contract in May to replace Erik ten Hag who was appointed as Manchester United manager.
But with Ajax fifth in the Eredivisie, seven points behind leaders Feyenoord after 18 matches, they decided to part ways with the former Club Brugge coach.
“This is a painful decision, but it’s necessary,” Ajax chief executive Edwin van der Sar said in a statement.

“Regardless of the good start to the season, we lost a lot of unnecessary points. The football itself was precarious too.
“Due to the World Cup, we had an early and long break during the winter. We gave Alfred our time and trust to change the way things were going. It became clear to us that he could not change the tide.”
Ajax have not won in the league since defeating RKC Waalwijk on Oct. 23 and have drawn their last six Eredivisie matches.
