Former Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin Van Der Sar has said that he will want to return Manchester United one day as their sporting director.
“Besides my family, my wife and kids and everything, I have two loves in my life,” Van der Sar told Planet Futbol. “That’s Ajax, who gave me the opportunity to develop, they scouted me, they gave me the chance to shine in the world of football.
“And the last club of my career (Man Utd) also gave me a lot of attention, recognition and everything, developed at a later stage. And of course I’d be interested, interested in a position.
“But I need to learn a little more here [at Ajax], develop myself further and of course eventually let’s see what the future brings. United is a fantastic club, there’s a great following all over the world. Everybody wants to play for them and eventually, work for them.”
United are currently struggling and sit in the lower half of the table. Despite changing managers, results have not come and what the club probably needs more than anything currently is an experienced sporting director and Edwin Van Der Sar having played for United before and being the current sporting director of Ajax would be perfectly suited for the job at Old Trafford.
