Ajax intend to renew Van der Sar's contract
It is difficult for things to be better for Ajax in the league. They are unquestionable leaders and are undefeated. The majority of the responsibility is on the pitch and the bench, but it also has a lot to do with the club's planning.
For example, this was key to Ajax becoming one of the best teams in Europe last year.
They dazzled everyone in the Champions League and were on the brink of another historic surprise. In order to keep this good run going, they will need to expand links.
Overmars is already on the table, but that's not all the owners want. They seem satisfied with Van der Sar, and according to 'Ajax Showtime', they will soon renew the ex goalkeeper's contract in his role as general manager. It is expected to run until November 2023.
In doing so, the retired footballer will continue to be important to the team that saw him grow. It was in Amsterdam where he took his first steps as a player, and where he made the leap to international football, playing for Juventus, Fulham and Manchester United.
