Frank de Boer the latest to be linked with Liverpool

The Dutchman wants a ‘new adventure’ in the near future

Frank de Boer is the latest manager to be linked with the Liverpool job, with the pressure on Brendan Rodgers building with each game.

Jurgen Klopp and Carlo Ancelotti, who are both out of work, have been the hot favourites to take the Anfield hot seat if Rodgers does get the sack.

However, de Boer, who also sang the praises on Newcastle United, gave a special mention to the Merseyside club in a recent interview.

The 45-year certainly has managerial pedigree, he has won four Eredivisie tiles as Ajax boss and has also coached the Netherlands national team in his career so far.

‘it is a fantastic environment to coach’

When speak to BBC’s World Service, de Boer said: “They are fantastic clubs, Liverpool and Newcastle. With supporters behind them, it is a fantastic environment to coach but this year it is important for me to do well at Ajax and then we will see.”

“I think every year it comes closer of course. I’m looking maybe for another adventure. If there is an interesting club that I think with my quality I can make that team better, if I can, then I will take that chance,” he said when asked if he would ever manage in the English Premier League.

De Boer also suggested that Liverpool tried to hire him in 2012 to succeed Kenny Dalglish, but the Reds opted for Rodgers instead.
