While he is achieving great heights at Antwerp, things have gone from bad to worse for the Amsterdam team since the departure of Marc Overmars from Ajax. Yet the Johan Cruijff ArenA is gradually ready to finally close its chapter.
As a reminder: Overmars left Ajax in February of last year after accusations of inappropriate behavior. The director of football affairs, who started working at the Bosuil shortly afterwards, is said to have sent photos of his genitals to the female staff.
Research into Overmars
Reason enough for the Sports Jurisdiction Institute to start an investigation into the 86-time Dutch international, against whom several reports were filed. That investigation has now been completed, director Henk van Aller confirmed Algemeen Dagblad.
“The investigation phase has now been completed and the prosecutor and his team of investigators have collected all the facts. The account of facts has been submitted with a report to the disciplinary committee, which will soon make a decision,” he is quoted by the Dutch newspaper.
The disciplinary committee’s decision will be distributed in writing, after which Overmars can appeal against his sanction. This may include a life ban in Dutch football, a punishment that would not apply abroad.
