Former Manchester United goalkeeper, Van der Sar, has acknowledged reports pointing him to Old Trafford.

The Dutchman, who currently works as a Chief Executive at Ajax Amsterdam, is tipped to become the successor of the under fire Ed Woordard at United.

“It’s nothing new for me, my name circulates there for a long time,” van de Sar told ESPN, as cited by Goal.

“[With] the work and pressure, you should have a feeling with the club.

“I could do the things Ronald de Boer is doing – he works for us at Ajax and also here for you guys. He has more freedom than me, he has a good life.

“The pressure is different and I won’t work at a club where I don’t have a feeling. I could only do this for Ajax or United. I would not work for any other clubs.

“I am really happy with how we have [developed] Ajax in the last couple of years. We had ambitions 10 years ago to reach the top of Europe.

We have reached that. We had to work really hard, we don’t have a rich owner and the government didn’t help us,” concluded the man who won four Premier League titles and the Champions League with the Red Devils.

Meanwhile, United will travel to Italy to take on AS Roma in a Europa League semi-final second leg, with the Red Devils sitting comfortable with a 6-2 lead from the first leg in England last week.
