Tottenham target Frank de Boer wants Premier League job
Ajax manager Frank de Boer wants to manage in Premier League amid interest from Tottenham Hotspur
Frank de Boer has reiterated that he would like to manage in the Premier League.
The Ajax manager has been touted as one of the possible candidates to take over at White Hart Lane this summer should Spurs opt to show Tim Sherwood the exit door ahead of next season.

And the Netherlands legend confirmed that Spurs have talked to the Eredivise champions about their manager after previously turning down Liverpool in recent seasons.
“I have never talked with Inter Milan, but I prefer the Premier League, Bundesliga and La Liga,” De Boer told Gazzetta dello Sport. “Italian football is very much in decline.
“Juventus did not play badly but they often expect that the two forwards need to create something. It’s not my football.
“I would not go to Barcelona. It is very difficult to be a coach there. What can you teach players like Messi and Iniesta?
“Probably they need a manager rather than a coach, but I’m a coach rather than a manager.
“Tottenham talked informally with Ajax of my contract. I think they are quite happy with Tim Sherwood, but it is normal that they take information about a possible successor, as did Liverpool in the past.
“That time, I said I wanted to stay at Ajax. I’m very happy here.
“But if it came from a club with an interesting perspective and a good team, I would consider the proposal.
“I want to understand what contribution I can give.”
