One certainly can't say Jose Mourinho had not warned his players earlier this week.

Oh dear. Things haven't been going well at Ajax for the last few years, but losing your head coach to become the top assistant at Chelsea is just another painful reminder that Ajax is no longer one of the top 50 clubs in Europe, let alone amongst the elite.

The writing has been on the wall for about 10 years now. Back when Ajax was sexy, ESPN2 showed a weekly Dutch soccer game every Sunday morning in the early- to mid-90s.

Useless. That's about the only word I can use to describe Henk Ten Cate's time at Chelsea. The assistant coach was told to do one at the end of the week, drawing to an end one of the most obscure and egregious hirings in the history of the club.

Ten Cate came in, refused to sing & promptly begin to ooze hatefulness.
