Ajax boss Frank De Boer has revealed that he would be happy to manage Tottenham Hotspur in the future.

De Boer rejected an approach from Daniel Levy following the departure of Andre Villas-Boas earlier this season in order to stay at Ajax.

The 43-year-old has won the title in each of his three seasons with the Dutch giants and has also previously snubbed an offer from Liverpool.

De Boer told the BBC World Football Show: “Those two clubs are clubs that I think in the future I could be a manager of. I think the history of the clubs and what you can do with the team is my cup of tea.”

Hadded: “I’m not really thinking about it because I’m very happy here at Ajax. I’m not in a hurry to leave because everybody is still happy with me.

“I step in my car with a big smile to go to the club. I don’t think I’m finished here but there will come a time when I don’t like it any more or the club doesn’t like me anymore. Then we have to go both ways.”

“Tottenham called my manager with the possibility after sacking [Andre] Villas-Boasbut I said, ‘no, right now it’s not the right moment’,” he said.

De Boer signed a new four-year contract in the summer at Ajax.
