Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf are reporting that the new president of the Amsterdam club, Johan Cruyff, will continue his recruitment of some of the club’s most successful former players by inviting the 42-year-old retired goalkeeper to become a director.

The Dutchman won four Premier League titles under Sir Alex Ferguson, as well as two League Cups and a UEFA Champions League medal.

Four Eredivisie titles, three KNVB Cups, one UEFA Cup and a UEFA Champions League was the majority of his tally in Amsterdam as part of the legendary team from the mid-1990s.
