Ajax boss Frank De Boer has revealed he spurned offers from Liverpool and Tottenham to be their manager, reports Sky
“Two years ago I was very honoured that Liverpool asked me if I was interested in the job. There was other candidates also. But I just signed a new contract and I said you are too early at this moment. Tottenham, last year, I was one of the candidates and in the end they chose Pochettino and all respect to the choice. There were two clubs that I was quite interested in,” he admitted.
Ajax are hopeful of winning the Dutch Eredivisie title this season, but are currently behind league leaders PSV Eindhoven. Should the holders fail to retain the league crown once more, De Boer could well seek pastures anew. He further revealed his desire to manage in another country when the time is right.
“I would like to manage England but also Germany and the Spanish league because they are the three best leagues in the world, so I would like to get that experience.”
