Man Utd legend admits desire to return to Old Trafford

Manchester United Legend Edwin van der Sar has admitted he would love to return to Old Trafford one day.

The Dutchman won four Premier League titles in just five years with United under Sir Alex Ferguson.

Manchester United have been linked with Van der Sar – who currently works as chief executive officer with Ajax – amid their desire to bring in a technical director.

United have struggled in the transfer market in recent years and are looking for someone to work under a new structure that will also include Matt Judge.



And Van der Sar has admitted he’s open to a return.

“Yeah,” he told Planet Futbol when asked about a possible return.

“Besides my family, my wife and kids and everything I have two loves in my life.

“That’s Ajax, who gave me the opportunity to develop, they scouted me, they gave me the chance to shine in the world of football.

“And the last club of my career, also gave me a lot of attention, recognition and everything, developed at a later stage.

“And of course I’d be interested, interested in a position.

“But I need to learn a little more here [at Ajax], develop myself further and of course eventually let’s see what the future brings.

“United is a fantastic club, there’s a great following all over the world. Everybody wants to play for them and eventually, work for them.”

The Red Devils have endured a nightmare start of the Premier League season, winning just two of their first eight matches and Van Der Sar has also admitted his former club are a ‘long way’ from where they were.
