Spurs could go Dutch

Last Updated: Tue, 17 Dec 2013 14:36

Ajax boss Frank de Boer is the latest name believed to be under consideration by the Tottenham board over the vacant manager's role.

The Dutchman enjoyed an illustrious playing career, including a four-year spell at Barcelona, winning 10 major trophies and making over 500 first-team appearances.

De Boer is now a highly-rated coach and has led Ajax to three consecutive Eredivisie titles, but after just missing out on a place in the Champions League last-16 there is talk he could decide now is the time to move on.

The 43-year-old, who was the Netherlands' assistant coach at the last World Cup, was reportedly offered the chance to join Liverpool prior to Brendan Rodgers' appointment at Anfield.

But he turned down that role as he said he had "only just started with Ajax", but it is believed the former Rangers defender is keen to try his hand in the Premier League.

Meanwhile, Fabio Capello has dismissed suggestions that he knew Andre Villas-Boas was going to get sacked, after appearing as a TV pundit at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
