Ajax have already started their hunt for a new manager following the sacking of Alfred Schreuder on Thursday.

According to a report from De Telegraaf, Croatia manager Zlatko Dalić is the name at the top of their list.

The 56-year-old has a deal which runs until 2024, and the Dutch giants have already made contact to try and bring him to club football.

Dalić notably led Croatia to the 2018 World Cup final and a third-place finish at last year’s tournament in Qatar.

During his 70 games in charge, the manager has 38 wins, 14 draws and 18 losses alongside 127 goals scored and 94 conceded.

In the interim, Ajax confirmed Jong Ajax manager John Heitinga will be in charge this weekend against Excelsior.
