Frank de Boer Hint – He Could Join Newcastle If Offered Job


Ajax manager Frank de Boer has said if he had been offered the Tottenham job last year he would have taken it, but of course it was finally offered to Argentine Mauricio Pochettino, and the former Southampton manager has done well at Spurs this season.

Frank de Boer – I will consider an offer in the future

But Frank has been interviewed in the April issue of Four Four Two and this is some of what he said:

“Together with Mauricio Pochettino I was the biggest candidate, and if they had chosen me, I would’ve done it.”  “I believe you have to take risks, and have the conviction that you’ll succeed.”

“If I get an offer from a club in the future, I will consider the possibility and then follow my feeling.”

But Frank said last Friday it was his intention to stay at Ajax until the end of next season – this is what he said at his press conference last week:

“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.”

We’re not sure now what statement was made first, but it could be his interview in the Four Four Two magazine.

So it doesn’t look like he will leave in the summer,  if that’s true, but if Newcastle’s Managing Director Lee Charnley looks at his comment in Four Four Two, it should tell him there would be a chance to get the Dutchman to Newcastle.

Along with Tottenham and Liverpool, Frank has called Newcastle United a sleeping giant in England.

Maybe he wants to wake us up?

Somebody needs to.

I’m going to be very disappointed if John Carver ends up getting the job at Newcastle. 🙁

    Doesn’t matter as Ashley and Charnley won’t offer him the job, Carver is english, is a brown nose and is cheap – if he gets 6 – 8 more points this season the job is his

    Spitting, in general, has been part of the game for ages, not sure why. I used to do it myself, never on other people mind you. How many close ups do you get of footballers spitting? Is it necessary? Well, no it’s not, unless you have a horrible cold. In all other sports it is not habitually done. It’s almost a nervous tick in football. Shoot the ball, spit. Tackle, spit. Run, spit. Walk, spit. TV close up coming up, spit 🙂

    Jonny and Cisse just lost the plot a bit as they spit on each other.

    It’s like the grunting thing in tennis. Not necessary. If you’ve played tennis and the axxxxxe across from you keeps grunting it throws you off. Maybe it’s more pleasant when Maria does it, but still.

    Why’s MA going to want any other Coach? He’s got a cheaper option who even likes licking his arse.
    Mash likes a gamble, also SJP is always full.
    Mediocre is the way forward, with maximum profits.
    fans are going along with it.

    I had convinced myself not to use this site anymore because of the lying headlines, its really disgustning. Today i fell for another untrue headline and im sorry I did… Ed, you have fallen so deep, you dont even strike me as a fan anymore, just someone obsessed with getting hits for his site.

    The reason Ed ‘s headline is tempting, is to (as you so aptly stated)o gain hit’s.
    In which case what’s the obvious remedy ?

    Where is this all based on !

    As a resident living across here in The Netherlands i can Deffo confirm that FDB signed a new One Year Contract a few weeks back!

    This was widely reported across here, and Franky was quoted as saying that he had,nt achieved what he wanted to achieve yet with Ajax?

    As much as i would De Boer to come to us this is a complete Non Story.

    if he doesn’t get off the fence soon, he’ll run the risk of being impaled.

    ‘you must be brave to move, I must give clarity that I will stay, I would have moved if I had the chance, I stay at AJAX, I may move if another chance comes my way’…flip flop flip fop

    @10:

    Yeah your right DAZ, i know exactly what you mean!

    But the way the Club does its business with regards to Transfers and Comunication with its Fanbase does,nt Help either.

    De Boer may come to us or may not but any move will be next year and not this season in any case.

    I,m hoping that we don,t get Mclaren or Carver, because if we do it will be more Mid Table Mediocraty for the next few years and no FA cup or League cup runs!

    We haven’t approached de Boer and we aren’t going to. He’d expect things to be done. He’d demand changes, He’d be ambitious to succeed and compete, not just tread water in mid-table (actually, that is a euphemism for anywhere above relegation but not too close for comfort). He’d expect his own staff to be brought in, loyal to him and he’d expect his views on players to be respected and listened to by Carr and Charnley.
    That’s why he won’t be asked. His reputation and knowledge of football at the highest levels would further embarrass Charnley, who lacks any.
    I’m not even sure he’d fit in on Tyneside, but those are the reasons why he hasn’t been invited to apply and he’s not going to be.
    So for heaven’s sake, drop it, Ed.
