Seeing football assistant managers that are later promoted to head coaches is not rare at all. The 1xbet.ng/en website features betting opportunities on teams that feature the best coaches in the world. However, there are some very rare cases where the opposite happens.

More specifically, in some rare instances, someone who was a head coach is relegated to being assistant manager on the same team. That’s exactly what happened to Dutch manager Danny Blind not one but twice. Dutch football is fascinating to watch and bet, and the 1xBet website is the best place where punters can wager on all its matches.

The head coach who was relegated

A spell in Ajax

2005 wasn’t an easy year for Dutch team Ajax. They missed the Eredivisie title against rivals PSV. Additionally, the team was eliminated from the UEFA Cup by French team Auxerre. This led to the resignation of Ronald Koeman, who was Ajax manager at the time. The most accurate live bet scores are on 1xBet, and they can be used to adjust wagers made on Ajax and other teams.

Danny Blind was appointed as manager of Ajax immediately after Koeman’s resignation. He remained on the role for more than a year.

Later, in 2009, Blind was the director of football of the Dutch team. However, he became assistant manager of the team to Martin Jol, where he remained until 2011. Highly accurate live scores are available on 1xBet, which can be used for making bets with excellent winning chances.

Moving to the Dutch national team

The Dutch was without a job not for long. In 2012, after Louis van Gaal was appointed as head coach of the national team, Danny Blind was selected as one of his assistants. In 2014, Guus Hiddink replaced van Gaal as manager of the team, and Blind remained as one of his assistants. You can visit www.1xbet.ng/en/virtualsports now to wager on excellent virtual sports events, where punters can also review chances to bet on football.

Hiddink stated that he would depart the team in mid-2015. The Dutch football association stated that Blind would succeed him as head coach of the team. However, Blind’s spell in charge of the squad was far from good. In total he obtained:

  • 7 victories;
  • 3 draws;
  • and 7 defeats.

After a series of dismal performances, and also missing the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Danny Blind was fired as head coach of the squad in 2017. Four years later, in 2021, after Louis van Gaal was again appointed as manager of the Dutch national team, Blind was again chosen as one of his assistants. If you want to wager on the Oranje, the 1xBet website definitely is your best option.

Liverpool put their domestic woes behind them by reaching the Champions League knockout stage with a clinical second-half display against Ajax in Amsterdam.

Needing a draw to reach the last 16, the Reds were fortunate not to be behind before Mohamed Salah clipped in with their only shot on target of the first half.

Darwin Nunez, back in the starting line-up after injury, should have doubled the lead before half-time but the £64m summer signing struck a post with an open goal in front of him.

However, the Uruguay forward quickly made amends by powering in a precise header from Andy Robertson’s corner shortly after the restart.

Moments later, England Under-21s midfielder Harvey Elliott added the third by latching on to Salah’s reverse pass and lashing into the roof of the net from a tight angle.

Liverpool knew a draw would be enough to clinch their spot in the last 16 for the sixth successive season.

But the comfortable victory means the Reds host Napoli in next week’s final round of group-stage fixtures safe in the knowledge their place is assured.



Liverpool XI Vs Ajax: Team News, Injury Latest & Possible Line Up

Darwin Nunez is expected to back from injury as Liverpool ready to face Ajax in the Champions League tonight.

Nunez missed the weekend defeat to Nottingham Forest with a tight hamstring but, having trained on Monday and Tuesday, will be available for selection in Amsterdam.

“He trained normal yesterday and today. So yes, in this moment, he is available”

Thiago Alcantara suffered an ear infection on the morning of the Forest match and will miss out again, meaning Jordan Henderson is likely to start in midfield alongside Fabinho.

Trent Alexander-Arnold should return to the side after being benched at the weekend,

while Joe Gomez is expected to keep his place with Joel Matip still out with a calf injury and Ibrahima Konate only just returning to first-team training, though the latter will be in the squad.

Naby Keita is also back in training but this match will come too soon,

though Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is available again after making his first appearance of the season against Forest.

One of those to come out of the defeat at the City Ground with any credit was Harvey Elliott

and he is line to start again, particulary if Klopp continues to opt for Mohamed Salah in a central position,

while Fabio Carvalho could benefit once more from the long-term injuries to Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota.

Predicted Liverpool XI:


Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson;

Fabinho, Henderson;

Elliott, Carvalho;

Salah, Nunez

Joel Matip scored a last-gasp winner as Liverpool gave their season a huge lift with a 2-1 victory over Ajax in a Champions League Group A contest at Anfield where the crowd paid tribute to the late Queen.

Jurgen Klopp had spoken of needing a response from his side following the 4-1 defeat at Napoli last week and they made a strong start.

Mohamed Salah opened the scoring on 17 minutes when he rifled home after good play by Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota to net his first goal in eight appearances in the competition to.

Diaz and Salah both went close to doubling the lead, but the visitors silenced Anfield just 10 minutes later when Mohammed Kudus finished off a neat move down the left by hammering a strike in off the underside of the crossbar.

Liverpool dominated throughout the second half but Jota and Virgil van Dijk failed to make the most of a couple of half chances.

Ajax rarely threatened on the counter attack but could have stolen in front 14 minutes from the end when Daley Blind flashed a header inches wide of the far post.

The home side continued to push and clinched the points when Matip nodded in a left-wing corner in the 89th minute.

Liverpool will be without Andy Robertson for a number of weeks after the defender suffered a knee injury during last week’s loss away at Napoli.

The Scotland international has become the latest in a long list of injury concerns this season,

with Fabio Carvalho and Jordan Henderson also ruled out as Jurgen Klopp’s side prepare for Ajax in the Champions League later today.

Curtis Jones is also unavailable, further limiting Klopp’s options in midfield, with Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on the sidelines.

Thiago Alcantara, however, made his return during the defeat to Napoli,

whileDiogo Jota has recently ramped up his return to full fitness, offering at least some light at the end of the injury crisis tunnel for Klopp.

Having fallen to a heavy defeat in Italy hours after Ajax thrashed Rangers in the same group, the pressure is on Liverpool at Anfield.

Liverpool predicted XI (4-3-3):


Alexander-Arnold, Matip, van Dijk, Tsimikas;

Fabinho, Thiago, Milner;

Salah, Jota, Diaz


Injured: Carvalho, Henderson, Keita, Kehrer, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Robertson, Jones, Konate

Manchester  United Verbally Agree €100m Deal For Ajax Winger Antony

Manchester United have reached a verbal agreement worth €100m (£84m) with Ajax for the transfer of Antony.

The Red Devils have been eager to reunite Erik ten Hag with the 22-year-old all summer long, but have been unable to thrash out a deal with the Eredivisie giants.

Ajax have rejected three bids from United, the latest of which was worth around €90m,

but a breakthrough has been made in talks between the two clubs – with Antony now closing in on the move to Old Trafford that he has been desperate to make.

Antony was left out of Ajax’s squad to face Utrecht on Sunday.

Manager Alfred Schreuder said in his pre-match interview that ‘nothing had changed’ in negotiations between the two clubs –

indicating that United hadn’t offered to pay the club-record fee the Amsterdam-based giants have been seeking.

But United haven’t given up on their pursuit of Antony – with Ten Hag clear that signing the Brazilian is his number one priority –

and sources have confirmed  that a verbal agreement has been reached with Ajax

although there are still a few details to sort out. United now have just under a week to finalise terms before the summer transfer window closes.

Antony’s arrival would be a huge boost to Manchester United.


Ajax agree £30m Fee With Tottenham For Steven Bergwijn

Steven Bergwijn is finally closing in on a move to Ajax after the Dutch champions reached an agreement with Tottenham over a long-disputed transfer fee.

Ajax have held an interest in the winger for some time and had hoped to sign him back in January, but couldn’t finalise a deal with Spurs.

But after Ajax agreed to pay a total package worth £30m – £26m of which will be paid up front – Bergwijn is set to return to his home country.

The 24-year-old was the subject of interest from Everton last week and the Toffees offered him more lucrative terms than Ajax, but he has turned down Frank Lampard’s side in favour of a move to Amsterdam.

Bergwijn joined Tottenham from PSV Eindhoven back in January 2020, notably scoring a cracking goal on his debut in a 2-0 win over Manchester City.

His most memorable moment in a Spurs shirt came in January when he scored twice deep into stoppage time to salvage an unlikely 3-2 win at Leicester.

However, Bergwijn managed to score just eight times in 83 games for Tottenham.

The likes of Lucas Moura, Gareth Bale and Dejan Kulusevski were all preferred to him during his two-and-a-half years in north London.

He will now head to an Ajax side in the middle of a rebuild after losing the likes of Noussair Mazraoui and Ryan Gravenberch,

while Sebastien Haller and Lisandro Martinez are also expected to leave.

'He Knows What's Best' Ajax Boss Confident Jurrien Timber Won't Join Manchester United

Ajax manager Alfred Schreuder says he hopes to keep Jurrien Timber and Antony in Amsterdam next season, amid interest from Manchester United.

United appointed Schreuder’s predecessor Erik ten Hag ahead of the 2022/23 season and have since been linked with several Ajax players past and present.

Netherlands international Timber is among them, but Schreuder is confident that he will be able to count on the centre-back next season.

Schreuder told ESPN (via Fabrizio Romano):

“I have spoken with Jurrien and I’m assuming he is staying at Ajax,”

“Timber is a smart guy, and he knows what’s best for himself. We think he is not done yet at Ajax.”

Another Ajax player to be linked with a move to United is Brazilian winger Antony.

The 22-year-old Brazil international was a key player for Ten Hag’s title-winning Ajax side last season,

scoring 12 goals in all competitions, but former Club Brugge boss Schreuder is keen to hold onto his best assets.

“We want to keep Antony at Ajax,”  “I want to work with him, and the club knows this”.

Manchester United are yet to make a signing this summer, and they have been locked in talks

with Barcelona for midfielder Frenkie de Jong – another of Ten Hag’s former Ajax players – for weeks.

Big changes are expected at Old Trafford this summer following a hugely disappointing 2021/22 campaign,

where they finished sixth in the Premier League and failed to win any silverware.

United were linked with another Dutchman recently, Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt,

but Chelsea could provide competition for the centre-back.

Ajax Agree Fee To sign Steven Bergwijn From Tottenham Hotspur

Ajax have agreed a fee in the region of £20m to sign Tottenham forward Steven Bergwijn, 90min understands.

Bergwijn has long been expected to leave the Lilywhites this summer after making just four Premier League starts all last season.

The forward even explicitly revealed his desire to be sold earlier this month, stating:


“I just need to go play,” he told AD. “I want to leave Spurs now, that’s for sure.

“Is it important that my new club plays in the Champions League? That’s not my top priority.

It would be nice, but what’s important is that I’m going to play.

“I wasn’t allowed to leave Spurs in the winter and then I didn’t have any problems.

But for the last few months, I was hardly looked after there. I want to go and play somewhere weekly.”

Now he is set to get his wish, as Ajax and Tottenham have agreed terms over a transfer fee of £20m, with add-ons worth around £5m.

The sale will free up Tottenham to go and sign a new forward to add to their already potent attack this summer.

Dejan Kulusevski, Harry Kane and Son Heung-min combined for an astonishing 66 goal contributions last season alone,

and we understand that Spurs interested in one of Richarlison, Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Jesus or Raphinha as an addition to their forward line.

Top 10 Teams With The Most League Titles In Europe

Some of the teams in Europe have won their domestic league title numerous times.


Below are ten teams in Europe that have won the most league titles.


1. Linfield – 56 league titles

2. Rangers – 55 league titles


3. Celtic – 51 league titles


4. Olympiakos – 46 league titles


5. Benfica – 37 league titles


6. Sparta Prague – 36 league titles


6. Juventus – 36 league titles

Juventus thoroughly dominated the Italian Serie A at the beginning of the last decade but

their dominance has waned since the beginning of the current decade.

The Italian giants are yet to win the league title since their last triumph two seasons ago.

However, they still have 36 league titles to their names, making them the sixth most successful club in Europe based on domestic league titles won.


8. Real Madrid – 35 league titles

This season, Real Madrid won the Spanish La Liga title with four games remaining and this proved their dominance in the league this season.

However, their victory also took them into the top ten list of the clubs with the most league titles in Europe.

Their recent triumph was the 35th league title win in their history.


8. Ajax – 35 league titles

Ajax has dominated the Dutch Eredivisie for quite some time now and they have won the last two editions of the Dutch league.

The Erik ten Hag-led side is on the verge of winning another league title this season as they are four points ahead of PSV Eindhoven,

the team in second place, with just two league games remaining.

If they eventually win the league, they would be tied with Sparta Prague and Juventus on this list.


10. Anderlecht – 34 league titles
