Ex-Ajax manager set to take over as manager of Premier League club

After seeing Alfred Schreuder at Elland Road on Sunday, a journalist reports Leeds is considering using him to replace Jesse Marsch.

According to journalist Mike McGrath, Alfred Schreuder, the former manager of Ajax, was spotted at Elland Road and is a “serious contender” to succeed Jesse Marsch as Leeds United’s manager.

Leeds is now playing Manchester United, and caretaker manager Michael Skubala is in charge following a fruitless week for the board’s efforts to choose a new manager.

The names Andoni Iraola, Marcelo Gallardo, Ange Postecoglou, and Arne Slot have all been associated with The Whites.

Even the owner of Leeds, Andrea Radrizzani, intimated on Twitter earlier this week that he hoped to name a new manager within a few days.

Of course, Leeds has not yet named a new manager, and it appears they may be considering Schreuder as a replacement for Marsch.

On Sunday, McGrath announced on social media that the former Ajax manager was present at Elland Road.

According to a journalist for The Telegraph, the 50-year-old is now a “strong contender” to become Leeds’ next manager.

Last month, Schreuder was let go from his position in Amsterdam as a result of the season’s rocky beginning.

At Ajax, the Dutchman took Erik Ten Hag’s place, although since November, he had only been able to win two games.
