Ajax bought a player on the final day of the transfer period through a German agent’s office, which owns shares in a private company of technical director Sven Mislintat. Ajax appears not to be aware of this. The issue conflicts with the rules that the listed club must adhere to, NOS reports after an investigation.

This concerns a share transaction in Mislintat’s company Matchmetrics GmbH, a commercial data system for scouting football players. Five weeks after Mislintat started at Ajax, the director became the largest shareholder with 35 percent. At that time, June 26, 2023, the German agent office AKA Global, the football agency run by Arthur Beck and Kerim Cerit, will also receive shares in Matchmetrics. Ajax signed Borna Sosa from VfB Stuttgart via AKA Global.

The Amsterdam club starts an investigation. “Ajax is of course looking into this further and is being assisted by external advisors. Sven provides full cooperation, including sharing all relevant documents,” the club reports.
