Reds target De Boer 'loyal' to Ajax

Published Add your comment

Ajax manager Frank de Boer has ruled himself out of the running for the vacant Liverpool job as he wishes to remain loyal to the Dutch club.

The 42 year-old former international has won back-to-back Eredivisie titles in Holland since taking over from Martin Jol in 2010. It is reported Liverpool, who are working their way through a shortlist of candidates they would like to speak to about replacing Kenny Dalglish at Anfield, made a request to approach the Dutchman over the weekend.

Ajax have refused to comment on the situation but De Boer has given an interview to Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf in which he pledged his commitment to the club. He said: "I am honoured by the request but I have only just started with Ajax."
