Ajax Amsterdam coach Frank de Boer is to leave the Dutch side after five and a half years in charge, the club announced on Thursday.

The 45-year-old’s contract runs out next year but after their final day implosion in the Dutch title race Ajax announced they had agreed to part ways after their tour of china is completed.

Ajax went into Sunday’s final round of matches level on points with defending champions PSV Eindhoven but with a superior goal difference.

With their opponents, De Graafschap, sitting second from bottom, Ajax were favourites to deliver a fifth title under De Boer but could manage no better than a 1-1 draw, allowing PSV to finish two points clear at the top of the table.
