Tottenham’s pursuit of Frank De Boer seems over after manager says “I have no intention to leave Ajax”

It looks like Tottenham may have cocked up their pursuit of a second Dutch manager to replace Tim Sherwood even before Sherwood has been fired or the season finally come to it’s close.

It’s a widespread rumour/assumption that Tottenham will fire Tactics Tim at the end of the Premier League season, with Spurs looking to pull in a bigger name manager to lead their revival over the summer and next season.

A while back it was thought that Louis van Gaal would take over at White Hart Lane after his contract with Holland ends after the World Cup, however that chase hit a roadblock when Manchester United moved in after sacking David Moyes.

After Van Gaal came reports that Spurs were tracking Ajax boss Frank De Boer, but after a week of quotes and denials of approaches and deals in the press, De Boer has seemingly shut the door on Spurs on Saturday.

After Ajax drew 2-2 with NEC Nijmegen the manager said ” I have no intention to leave. I’m happy to work another year at Ajax.”
