In Stuttgart he was still the diamond eye. However, things never really went well for Sven Mislintat at his new club, Ajax Amsterdam. After last week’s allegations and the sporting crisis, the former Stuttgart sporting director must now resign after less than six months.
Ajax draws the consequences of the club’s sporting situation. There were violent riots around the Johan Cruyff Arena on Sunday afternoon after their team went 3-0 down after just 37 minutes in the duel against Feyernoord. Amsterdam are doing surprisingly poorly this season with just four points from five games and 14th place in the table.
But in addition to sporting reasons, there were allegations of misdeeds. The sporting director would have carried out the transfer of Borna Sosa despite a conflict of interest. According to information from ‘NOS’, a company he founded was allegedly involved in the transfer.
