Red Devils icon Van Der Sar talks replacing Woodward at Manchester United

Edwin van der Sar is leaving the door open for a return to Manchester United to be made.

Chief Executive Ed Woodward is stepping down from his role at the club after the Super League fiasco was announced just a few days ago, and Various candidates are being mooted to follow in his footsteps, with Van der Sar among those to have seen a move to Manchester mooted.

Van der Sar has told ESPN of the speculation linking him with United: “It’s nothing new for me, my name circulates there for a long time.”

He added on his future, with nothing being ruled out at this stage: “[With] the work and pressure, you should have a feeling with the club.

“I could do the things Ronald de Boer is doing – he works for us at Ajax and also here for you guys. He has more freedom than me, he has a good life.

“The pressure is different and I won’t work at a club where I don’t have a feeling. I could only do this for Ajax or United. I would not work for any other clubs.

“I am really happy with how we have [developed] Ajax in the last couple of years. We had ambitions 10 years ago to reach the top of Europe. We have reached that. We had to work really hard, we don’t have a rich owner and the government didn’t help us.”

For now, he is fully focused on his role in Amsterdam and a desire to finish “in a perfect way” when the day does come to take on a new challenge.

He added: “A European prize is something that triggers me.”
