Ajax has a position available for Sneijder: Initial talks have been held

Wesley Sneijder faces a return to Ajax . Director of football affairs Sven Mislintat has approached the Utrechter whether he is open to returning to the Amsterdam club. It would be a position in the technical staff. Several talks have now taken place and Sneijder is willing to return. De Telegraaf reports this on Sunday evening.

The news comes as no surprise. During his working period at Sparta, trainer Maurice Steijn already announced that he was very charmed by the former international and would like to offer him a position at Het Kasteel. At the time, it didn’t get off the ground. Several conversations have taken place between Mislintat and Sneijder and this will happen several times in the near future to discuss the exact filling of the position. These talks are currently on hold because Sneijder’s mother passed away last week at the age of 59.

A few years ago, Sneijder made an attempt to follow the trainer’s training of the KNVB, but he soon stopped. ‘My wish was a bit of customization. More guidance towards managing a team. That did not fit the image of the KNVB and then it becomes very difficult to work together. Unfortunately, we have said goodbye for now’, the former Ajax player explained at the time. He may be able to give his coaching career a new impulse with a position in Ajax’s technical staff.
