Ajax have admitted they are unhappy with Henk ten Cate over his imminent move to Chelsea.
Ten Cate is holding talks with Chelsea about joining the club’s coaching staff after Premiership outfit agreed a compensation deal with Ajax on Monday.
The former Barcelona assistant manager is expected to complete his move to Stamford Bridge in the next few days where he is expected to work as an assistant to Avram Grant.
Ajax’s technical director Martin van Geel says the club are not happy at how the move for ten Cate come about
“Henk spoke with Chelsea a week last Thursday. The following Tuesday Henk approached the board and said he wanted to go to Chelsea,” Van Geel told The Sun.
“Henk presented it to us as a fact and we didn’t have any choice.
“We didn’t want to work with a coach who had his mind at Chelsea.
“Things should have been done differently. I don’t want to say more.”
Ten Cate was formerly assistant to Barcelona coach Frank Rijkaard and helped the club win the Champions League and Spanish title in 2006.
He took over at Ajax at the start of last season and led the club to joint top in his first campaign, with the club losing out on the title by goal difference.
