I think we all assumed Spurs would be making an approach for a new manager with the Top 4 being a Timpossibility. Now it seems like that is a certainty.
Reports in the Dutch media indicate that not only are Spurs interested in Frank de Boer, but that Frank might be interested in us too. According to the article, Spurs have already spoken to Marc Overmars, the Director of Football at Ajax, which would seem to indicate a formal approach. But we've been down this road before
What's really awesome though, is it seems like Frank de Boer might be TOTALLY into us you guys.
Frank de Boer on his next step: 'I want to add something to a club, build something. - I won't be talking to other clubs til after May 3.'.— Michiel Jongsma (@JongsmaJongsma) April 29, 2014
Frank de Boer is not denying an approach of Monaco, but indicates he is more open to a club like Tottenham Hotspur. (via @NOS)— Michiel Jongsma (@JongsmaJongsma) April 29, 2014
These are obviously extremely encouraging quotes. Not only are we decisively moving for a manager, but it seems like de Boer is more than a little interested in us. He certainly seems more inclined to go to a more traditional club than a mega bucks team like Monaco. Should he leave Ajax this season, it would seem that we fit the bill of the team he's looking for.
You guys. YOU GUYS. YOU GUUUUUUYS. IT'S ALL HAPPENING.
