Edwin van der Sar has denied claims he is set to leave Ajax to become director of football at Manchester United.

Reports in the English media over the past week have claimed that van der Sar was close to an agreement with Manchester United to become their new director of football.

The former Manchester United goalkeeper was present at Vincent Kompany’s testimonial on Wednesday evening, and afterwards the current Ajax general manager denied the claims he was on his way back to Old Trafford.

He is quoted by The Mirror saying, “I am enjoying my time at Ajax. I’ve got a different role – chief executive.

“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.”
