Edwin van der Sar: Back in the game

Edwin van der Sar has ruled himself out of a return to Manchester United amid rumours he could become a director at the club.

Van der Sar won the Champions League and four Premier League titles at Old Trafford and currently holds a role as Ajax’s general director.

The Dutchman had been linked with the new technical director role at United, who is expected to oversee the scouting and recruitment structure, however he has now rubbished these reports.

“I saw it (the report) a few weeks ago in the press, but that story about United is nonsense,” he was quoted as saying on the weekly Inside Ajaxprogram on Ziggo Sport.

“I think I have a two-year contract. Ajax is my club and I would like to stay longer. The success we strive for and want to achieve is beautiful.”
