Edwin Van Der Sar Interested In Manchester United Director Role

Oct 14, 2019 12:40 PM

Edwin van der Sar stated his interest in the football director role at Manchester United.

"Besides my family, the wife, kids and friends, I have two loves in my life -- Ajax, who scouted me and gave me the chance to shine in the world of football and Manchester United, who helped me to develop even at the end of my career. Of course I'd be interested in a position, but at first I think I need to learn a little bit more here at Ajax and develop myself even further," said van der Sar.

The former United keeper is currently the chief executive at Ajax.

Van der Sar said that United's current struggles are down to a lack of strong voices in the locker room.

"I think for the last couple of years the strong characters have disappeared and [are] not making a difference anymore."

Lautaro Looking To Sign New Inter Contract

Oct 10, 2019 2:15 PM

Lautaro Martinez is looking to sign a new contract with Inter, according to his agent.

Barcelona have been linked with a move for the Argentine striker, although his agent says that Lautaro is developing under Antonio Conte.

“I believe Antonio Conte’s arrival has improved Lautaro on a physical and tactical level. He has improved in so many ways, but above all his fitness levels and power. He’s always had a lot of self-confidence, playing very well against Barcelona and Juventus. Lautaro is still young and probably needs to learn how to measure out his enthusiasm and energy through the 90 minutes. He is very intelligent and knows how hard he still has to work," said Beto Yaque.
