De Boer: Rodgers is struggling, but I cannot talk about Liverpool

The Dutchman says he has no questions to answer regarding his future until another club rings his phone, but admits the lure of managing abroad could yet interest him

Ajax boss Frank de Boer has refused to talk about speculation linking him with “struggling” Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers.

De Boer has led Ajax to four straight Eredivisie titles and, as a result, is regarded as one of the leading coaches in European football.

The 44-year-old was linked with the manager’s post at Tottenham last season and his name has been mentioned in connection with the same position at Liverpool, where Rodgers is thought to be under pressure following their struggles this campaign.

However, De Boer is remaining quiet on the subject and insists he is content to remain at the Amsterdam ArenA and attempt to build on the success he has enjoyed in recent seasons.

He told Voetbal International: “I don’t want to talk about Liverpool. Also out of respect to Rodgers, who’s had a fantastic season and is struggling now.

“As long as no one contacts me, I don’t want and don’t need to think about it. I’m busy with Ajax.

“And if nobody calls, I’m very happy to stay here. There is still a lot to accomplish.

“I might decide that anyway. The thought of coaching abroad doesn’t tickle me yet.”
