Of all the things you wouldn’t expect, a possible return of Marc Overmars to Ajax Amsterdam is one that we would put quite high on our lists. But the Ajax players wanted him back.
Ajax Amsterdam fired Marc Overmars after complaints about inappropriate behavior. He then became sporting director at Royal Antwerp FC, where he is now looking for a solution to remain functional due to a possible worldwide suspension.
But in recent months, Ajax Amsterdam has tried to get its strong man back to the Dutch capital. They are said to have sounded out twice, including once this season.
Overmars is having a great time at Antwerp
A candid Overmars announced this in an interview with the NOS: “Amsterdam feels like my city, but I enjoy Antwerp,” the Dutchman said candidly. “I want to stay in Antwerp.”
“I really enjoy it here. They see how difficult it is to find someone. A person in that position. Especially a Dutch person. There is a lot involved in such a position. The stress, the pressure. Find it someone who can manage all columns.”
