Ajax manager Frank De Boer has heaped more pressure on current Liverpool boss, Brendan Rodgers, by hailing the Reds a “fantastic club” and admitting that working in England in the future is a possibility.

Questions have been raised about the future of Rodgers after Liverpool have had a poor start to the season, winning just two of their last eight games in all competitions.

Jürgen Klopp and Carlo Ancelotti have been linked with taking over from the Northern Irishman if Fenway Sports Group decided to move in a new direction.

Since being appointed Ajax manager in 2010, 45-year-old De Boer has won four Eredivisie titles, and he has suggested that he will see out the current season with the Dutch side:

Quoted in the Daily Express, De Boer said: “They are a fantastic clubs.

Liverpool and Newcastle – with supporters behind them – it is a fantastic environment to coach but this year it is important for me to do well at Ajax and then we will see.

De Boer has spent his entire coaching career in Holland, but a move to England does interest the Dutchman:

“Yes, I think every year it comes closer of course,” he added.

“I’m looking maybe for another adventure. If there is an interesting club that I think with my quality I can make that team better – if I can, than I will take that chance.”

Earlier this year, De Boer claimed that he had rejected the chance to take over as Liverpool boss in 2012 after Kenny Dalglish left the club.
