De Boer again speaks out on link to Tottenham job

Ajax

The Ajax manager has stated that he has no reason to leave the Amsterdam giants, pouring cold water on reports he could be headed to North London.

With Tottenham’s 1-0 defeat to fierce local rivals Arsenal on Sunday, their chances of finishing the top four have taken a major dent.

If Champions League football is not guaranteed for next season it is likely that the question marks over Tim Sherwood’s future will reach a crescendo.

One of the men being linked with a potential move to White Hart Lane to replace the retired midfielder is Frank De Boer.

The Ajax manager has had a largely successful spell in Amsterdam over the last number of years, but reports in the European press have suggested that the former defender could well be set for a move in the summer.

However, De Boer has set the record straight, stating that he is not thinking about leaving the current Eredivisie champions.

“I am very satisfied with Ajax and my family are pleased with the current situation,” he told Studio Voetbal.

“It something comes along you might think about going there but that is not the case. I see no reason to leave.

“It could be that there are not many guys leaving Ajax this season.

“This may be a good challenge with the youngsters and the experience. I hope we can take some steps forward.”

Spurs have also been linked with national bosses Cesare Prandelli and Louis van Gaal, but it appears that De Boer has ruled himself out of the running.
