Van der Sar Focused on Ajax Amid Reports of Man Utd Role.

Ajax chief executive officer Edwin van der Sar has rejected speculation linking him with a return to Manchester United.

The former United goalkeeper is reportedly a target for the Premier League club as they seek to appoint their first sporting director.

United have struggled in the transfer market since the 2013 retirement of managerial great Alex Ferguson, under whom Van der Sar played.

But a move back to the Premier League does not appear to be on the cards for the 48-year-old, who was asked about the links to United after playing in Vincent Kompany’s Manchester City testimonial on Wednesday.

“No, I’m focused on my job as chief executive at Ajax,” Van der Sar told reporters.

“We had a fantastic year in Europe last year, also won the league in Holland.

“We want Ajax at a higher European level and making sure we get back to the elite. That’s what we’re working on.

“I’m enjoying my time at Ajax. We touched the top level last year and we have to make sure we have the best opportunity to stay there.”
