Ajax trainer Ten Cate to Chelsea

Ajax trainer Henk ten Cate is to join the London club Chelsea, reports ANP news service on Monday afternoon.


The Amsterdam football club has agreed to the immediate transfer trainer of Ten Cate who will be responsible for training the Chelsea players. As Chelsea manager, the Israeli Avram Grant will be in charge of the team’s external contacts.
The announcement ends weeks of speculation but is still pending an official agreement between Ten Cate and Chelsea although this is purely a formality says ANP.
Ten Cate has been active at Ajax for just over one season and led the team to the national cup victory. Unlike Chelsea which has some of the strongest players in the world, Ajax has seen its top talent transfer to other clubs over the past few months.
Ajax declined to comment on Ten Cate’s replacement.
