Speaking to BBC World Football, De Boer was asked if it was true that he had turned down the opportunity to manage both Liverpool and Tottenham he said,  “Liverpool especially. Tottenham called my manager with the possibility after sacking Villas-Boas but I said, ‘no, right now it’s not the right moment.”

“Those two clubs are clubs that I think in the future I could be a manager of. I think the history of the clubs and what you can do with the team in the environment of those clubs is my cup of tea.”

However De Boer insisted that he has no intention to leave Ajax at the moment, “I’m not really thinking about it because I’m very happy here at Ajax. I’m not in a hurry to leave because everybody is still happy with me.

“I step in my car with a big smile to go to the club. I don’t think I’m finished here but there will come a time when I don’t like it any more or the club doesn’t like me anymore. Then we have to go both ways.”
