Edwin van der Sar went from being a player to the CEO of Ajax

Throughout the entire playing career of Edwin van der Sar, he has performed in Ajax, Juventus, Fulham, Manchester United and VV Noordwijk.

Despite having played with some of the biggest European clubs such as Manchester United and Juventus, it’s with Ajax where he feels most at home and where his fan-base can truly be felt.

It was with Ajax where Edwin van der Sar initially developed as a youth before he went off to join some of the bigger and more recognized European clubs.

Edwin van der Sar officially retired from playing at a competitive level on May of 2011 but the retiree still remains up to date with the world of football as he returned to his roots with Ajax as he later went on to become the marketing director of the Dutch club and it has recently been confirmed by the club itself that Edwin van der Sar is going to become the chief executive officer as he is expected to replace DolfCollee.

On November 11 of the ongoing year, DolfCollee is predicted to step down from his CEO position in Ajax and Edwin van der Sar has already been confirmed as the person selected to replace him and become the new CEO of the Dutch club.

After having spent around 9 years with Ajax and helped the club to win a number of trophies including: UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, Eredivisie and a few others along the way as a player, Edwin van der Sar is hoping that he can continue helping out Ajax in adding more pieces of silverware and accomplishing more milestones but this time around not as a player but as an executive staff member.
