Edwin van der Sar suggests he return to Man Utd


Ajax CEO Edwin van der Sar has predicted that he will return to Manchester United “one day”.

Before moving into the boardroom after retiring in 2011, Van der Sar spent six successful years as United’s top goalkeeper.

During his time at the club, he helped the Red Devils win four Premier League titles and the 2008 Champions League.

These days he is the CEO of the boys’ club Ajax, where he has received glowing reviews. Ajax has really flourished under his leadership, dominating domestically as well as within seconds of reaching the Champions League final in 2019.

Van der Sar was initially linked with United earlier this year following news that Vice President Ed Woodward was stepping down.

But no agreement was reached with Woodward, who now looks set to remain an adviser along with football manager John Murtough, who was appointed in March.

Speaking to Dutch media RTL (via Metro), Van der Sar insisted that although he is currently fond of Ajax, he would enjoy a role at Old Trafford in the future.

“I feel so good at Ajax”, he replied when asked if a United change would be tempting.

“I still have two years left here. I want to continue to achieve things here with the club. But I’m sure one day the moment will come.”

There will be lots of upheavals in United in the coming months. Ralf Rangnick was placed as interim manager for the first team until the end of the season after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was fired last month, and after this he will move on to a consulting role for another two years.

Whether there would be room for Van der Sar in a reorganized boardroom remains to be seen.
