Frank de Boer has been saying he will come out with a statement soon about what his future intentions are, and that’s what he has done today.
Frank de Boer – will honor his Ajax contract
And as half expected Frank de Boer will not be leaving Ajax this summer, and has committed his immediate future to the Dutch powerhouse.
This is what Frank said at his press conference today:
“I spoke this morning to the club and Marc Overmars. The players heard in training, and the staff already knew,”
“I think Ajax deserve to have clarity. I wanted that myself, too. There’s a good foundation at Ajax. I still see a lot of perspective.”
“There’s a good foundation, a lot of young players with long contracts. I still don’t feel I’m done here.”
“Liverpool can call Marc or my agents, or another club. But they’ll hear ‘no’. At this moment, nothing is going on,”
“Last year it was, and then I said I would think about it. Ajax asked me to give clarity before March 1, and I thought I was obliged to do that.”
Frank de Boer has won the Dutch Championship every season since he took over Ajax in 2010, after of Martin Jol resigned.
But this season Ajax are currently in second place behind PSV, and after 24 games played they are a massive 14 points behind PSV.
Safe to say that Ajax will not win the Eredivisie this season – so that’s a good target for Frank – win it for the fifth time in six attempts next season.
Newcastle have been closely linked with Frank de Boer since Alan Pardew walked out of the club afetr the win at home to Everton, and Frank was a huge favorite with Newcastle fans.

But he will not be coming to Newcastle this summer – that’s definite now.
We have a sneaking suspicion that Remi Garde will get the nod in the summer.
