Edwin van der Sar has reaffirmed his commitment to current club Ajax amid speculation that he is set to take the director of football role at Manchester United.
The 48-year-old has been identified as United’s number one target to take the vacant role at Old Trafford, with a bookmaker even suspending betting on him getting the job.
However, the Netherlands legend has been very successful in his current role of chief executive at Ajax, with the club reaching the Champions League semi-finals and winning the Eredivisie last year.
The former goalkeeper moved into the chief exec job in 2016 after being marketing director since 2012, and it is a job he does not seem keen to leave. ‘I am enjoying my time at Ajax. I?ve got a different role ? chief executive,’ said Van der Sar.
‘I am really looking forward to bringing Ajax back to the European top level ? that we probably touched last year ? and to make sure we get the best opportunity to stay there.’
