De Boer says no to Liverpool

Frank de Boer has ruled himself out of the running to take charge of Liverpool, with the Dutchman insisting he has work still to do at Ajax.

Liverpool have been linked with a host of big names since their decision to sack Kenny Dalglish last week and De Boer came in for support with the bookmakers over the weekend.

De Boer's stock is rising after guiding Ajax to back-to-back Eredivisie titles, but he is not looking for a new challenge in the near future.

"I am honoured by the request, but I am only just getting started with Ajax," De Boer told de Telegraaf. "In Amsterdam we are on a new path and, along with the club and Wim Jonk and Dennis Bergkamp, my colleagues in the technical team, I want to do great things. That's why I will stay loyal to Ajax in the coming years."

Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers has also turned down the chance to take charge of Liverpool, while former Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas claims he is in no rush to make his next move.
