Dutch legend admits he has his sights on Premier League jobs

first_imgAjax manager Frank de Boer admits it would be hard to turn down Liverpool and Tottenham if either of the Premier League pair come calling again.The former Holland defender has been in the running for both jobs in recent years, after winning four Eredivisie titles during his time with the Dutch side.De Boer was linked with the Anfield top job before Brendan Rodgers was appointed, and was approached about the Spurs gig, which was eventually handed to Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino last summer.And, speaking in an exclusive interview with Four Four Two, the 44-year-old claims is interested in moving to England in the near future.“I believe you have to take risks and have the conviction that you’ll succeed,” he said. “Together with Mauricio Pochettino I was the biggest candidate, and if they had chosen me, I would’ve done it [the Tottenham job].“If I get an offer from a club in the future I will consider the possibility and then follow my feeling.“I look at whether it’s a club where I think I can present myself well and where I’ll be able to act in the way I like.“If I think that’s not the case, then I won’t do it. Before, there was potential interest from Monaco as well, but I told my agent that it wasn’t something I was looking for at that moment.“Liverpool and Spurs are clubs I could manage. Liverpool are a good example – like the way they play now and how they finished last year.“They have adapted a different football philosophy. Before it was the old English kick-and-rush; now you see Martin Skrtel playing a passing game. You would never have seen that two or three years ago.“I noticed that as well; that you could adopt that game with that kind of player. They did that last season, and from nowhere they finished second. That’s the best there is.”When asked why he rejected the chance to talk to Liverpool, following Kenny Dalglish’s departure, the 1995 Champions League winner added: “It wasn’t a difficult decision.“I said straight away: “I don’t even have to think about it”. At the time, I felt I wasn’t ready for a move abroad. I had just started at Ajax, and I was not finished here at all.“Liverpool approached me in the same way Tottenham Hotspur did this year, wanting to hold exploratory talks first. I think I was one of the two or three candidates for the Liverpool job. Ajax manager Frank de Boer 1last_img read more
