What did Johan Cruyff say to Edgar Davids that caused a racism storm at Ajax?
Amazingly Cruyff said that Edgar Davids was only on the Ajax supervisory board “because he is black”.
The claim was made by Davids after a heated discussion between the pair. It seems that Cruyff has had his nose put out of joint after the appointment of Louis Van Gaal as CEO behind his back and has been hitting out at other members of the board.
“Sometimes people cross the line within the supervisory board. There have even been racist comments. I don’t want to go into details, but it’s not easy to hold this position,” said Davids who later had his claims up held by Steven ten Have.
“Unfortunately, that statement is true. Edgar has been insulted and has received shocking treatment,” Ten Have revealed.
