Tomas Galasek has been appointed the new captain of Ajax after the club stripped Rafael van der Vaart of the armband.

Central midfielder Van der Vaart was dropped to the bench by coach Ronald Koeman after refusing to play on the left wing in the Champions League game against Bayern Munich, and the club has since decided Czech Republic international Galasek should be the club's new skipper.

"Ronald Koeman found his (Van der Vaart's) attitude very disappointing in the light of the team's interests," a statement released by Ajax said.
