Koeman: Laudrup perfect for Ajax

Ronald Koeman would like to see Michael Laudrup appointed as the new Ajax boss following the departure of Peter Bosz.

The 52-year-old ended his playing career with Ajax after a massively successful career spent with Juventus, Barcelona and Real Madrid amongst others.

He has enjoyed some successes as manager, having started as an assistant with the Denmark national side before spells with Brondby, Getafe, Spartak Moscow, Mallorca, Swansea City and Lekhwiya.

He currently coaches Qatar Stars League side Al Rayyan, after signing a two-year deal with the club in October 2016.

While Jong Ajax coach Marcel Keizer and Reading boss Jaap Stam are reportedly on the club's shortlist, Koeman says Laudrup would fit the role perfectly.

He told De Telegraaf: "I do not know whether Laudrup is one of the candidates at Ajax following Bosz's departure.

"But it would make sense for me if they were looking at Laudrup.

"Swansea were playing some very nice attacking football under him and were not afraid to take on the big guns by playing their own game."

As a manager, Laudrup won the Danish Supercup, Danish Cup and Danish Superliga with Brondby. He claimed the Football League Cup with Swansea and the Qatar Stars League and Crown Prince Cup with Lekhwiya.
