Ajax boss Frank de Boer has once again spoken of Tottenham Hotspur’s interest in him despite the club denying there has been any contact.
The latest comments are sure to further anger Tim Sherwood who mystically claimed yesterday that someone is telling lies over the alleged link. It may come as little consolation to Sherwood but De Boer said today that he is far from a shoe-in to take over the post, with the conditions at the club having to be right for him to vacate his current job. However, he did say the club was “beautiful with a beautiful history”. And the Dutchman, who guided the Amsterdam club to the Eredivisie title at the weekend, confirmed he is still keen on speaking with Spurs.
Tottenham is just looking at which managers are in their league, they still have to decide which coach they will go for, he told De Telegraaf. It’s nice to see that [Davy] Klaassen and [Joel] Veltman urged me to stay at Ajax. Of course this is important for my choice. At some point I will compare a club to what I have at Ajax. I don’t want to throw this away and it really has to fit. These kind of details are very important. “Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has been accused of failing to act swiftly in lining up a replacement for Sherwood but it appears he has now finally shown his hand – if you believe Ajax and De Boer.
