AMSTERDAM (AP) — Ajax has provisionally suspended coach Marcel Keizer and two of his assistants, including former player Dennis Bergkamp, and will start talks about ending their contracts.

Michael Reiziger, a former Ajax player and currently its youth team coach, will take charge of the senior side on a temporary basis. Reiziger will be assisted by Winston Bogarde, his deputy with the youth team.

Ajax made the announcement Thursday, a day after the team was eliminated from the Dutch Cup.

The team from Amsterdam is second in the Dutch league and will play Willem II at home on Sunday.
