Frank De Boer: Is keeping an eye on the Premier League

De Boer claims that he turned down the chance to manage Tottenham in December after Andre Villas-Boas was sacked by the club.

And the former Holland international says that he simply thought that it was the wrong time to leave Ajax.

He said: "Tottenham called my manager after they sacked Villas-Boas [to say]: 'Is it a possibility?'

"I said no because it was not the right moment in the middle of the season. In the future I think I can be manager of a club like Tottenham or Liverpool.

"I think of the history of the clubs and what you can do with the team in the environment of those clubs. It would be my cup of tea, as the expression goes."

The former Holland international insists he remains happy at Ajax, telling World Football programme on the BBC World Service: "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 it any more and then we will have to go [our separate] ways.

"But I'm not in a hurry to leave because everybody is still happy with me. I step in the car with a big smile when I go to work and that's very important for me."

Im pretty happy with Rodgers thanks.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
