Former Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar is of the opinion that Everton could be making the wrong move in going for former Ajax manager Frank de Boer.
After having been in charge of Ajax for six seasons, the Dutchman recently left the job in the hope of getting an even bigger appointment. The prospect of managing in the Premier League, which is regarded as one of the best in the world, will be enticing for any manager and the same seems to hold for Frank de Boer. He has been rumoured as the frontrunner for the Everton managerial role.
After recently parting company with Roberto Martinez, Everton are on the lookout for a new manager. Even though they have the option of going for the former manager David Moyes who is now available, the club are thought to be keen on retaining the attractive style of football built by Martinez. The Spaniard, though, was not at his consistent best and the club were not able to achieve their objectives as a result. Any foreign manager will immediately struggle to adapt at Goodison Park and Everton should be focusing on getting a manager experienced with the league, according to van der Sar.
The Dutchman also reckons thatde Boer may struggle with the intense level of competition expected in the league next year.“The Premier League is a very tough competition.When you look at the names like (Jurgen) Klopp, (Pep) Guardiola, (Jose) Mourinho, (Arsene) Wenger then it will be a very tough season for him to do well at Everton.I would like to see him go in there because it would be very interesting.He does have a way of playing that is very interesting for England. He would be a very good manager, but the question is how (would he do) with the competition from the other teams,” said the former goalkeeper.
