De Boer open to Premier League

first_imgAjax manager Frank de Boer may have turned down Tottenham and Liverpool in the past, but would be open to managing them one day. The former defender rejected an approach from the former after Andre Villas-Boas’ exit, while adding “Liverpool especially” were interested in him previously. De Boer insists he has no intention of leaving the Amsterdam ArenA any time soon, but when he does those Premier League clubs would be ideal destinations. “Those two clubs are clubs that I think in the future I could be a manager of,” he told the BBC World Football Show. “I think the history of the clubs and what you can do with the team is my cup of tea. “I’m not really thinking about it because I’m very happy here at Ajax. I’m not in a hurry to leave because everybody is still happy with me. “I step in my car with a big smile to go to the club. I don’t think I’m finished here but there will come a time when I don’t like it anymore or the club doesn’t like me anymore. Then we have to go both ways.” The former Holland international is into his fourth season in charge of the Amsterdammers and has won three Eredivisie titles to date. Ajax are on course to do so again this term, with such success a key reason why De Boer turned down overtures from Spurs and Liverpool. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
