Impressive Ajax boss open to Liverpool offer

Ajax boss Frank de Boer would consider an offer from Liverpool to replace Brendan Rodgers, according to his brother, Ronald.

The Reds capped a disappointing week, in which they were eliminated from the Champions League group stage, with a 3-0 loss at the home of bitter rivals Manchester United yesterday, which leaves them tenth in the Premier League table after 16 games.

With results having been poor and performances, aside from the 3-0 victory at Spurs back in August, offering little in the way of encouragement, Rodgers’ position has already been called into question, with candidates being lined up to replace the Northern Irishman.

Dortmund’s Jurgen Klopp is rumoured to be the main target, but another name to have been mentioned is De Boer, who has guided Ajax to four Eredivisie titles in as many seasons since taking over in Amsterdam.

The Dutchman was approached by Liverpool before Rodgers was given the job, but he opted against switching to Merseyside.

However, is twin brother believes that he would give any offer from the Reds consideration now:

“If Liverpool come now he would certainly think about it,” Ronald de Boer is quoted by The Metro.

“He would certainly not close the door immediately, like he did two years ago.”
