Frank de Boer to speak to Spurs after 18 May

It is pretty clear that having lost out on one Dutchman, Louis Van Gaal after he was tipped off to wait for Manchester United, Tottenham have set their sights on another in Frank de Boer.

Frank de Boer to speak to Spurs after 18 May

Contact has been made, denied, confirmed and so on and so forth. Marc Overmars confirmed what de Boer told the press that he did receive a phone call to find out about the contractual situation at Ajax.

Tottenham can not do anything until Tim Sherwood leaves, that won't happen until after the last game on Sunday 11th May, after the Ledley King testimonial match on Monday 12th May and after a severance package has been agreed. That takes us to the morning of Tuesday 13th May at the earliest.

Frank de Boer however is leaving on a post season tour with Ajax today to Indonesia and won't return until Saturday 17th May. That means he can't speak with Tottenham until Sunday 18th May at the earliest but it is more likely to be later the following week.

The delay will frustrate Spurs fans but on the plus side Ajax will want the future of their manager sorted quickly and Frank de Boer is said to want his future sorted by the end of May. The press in Holland have already begun to speculate on his successor.

The hiring of Frank de Boer may well strengthen the position of Franco Baldini although their are suggestions that Damien Comolli may return to White Hart Lane this summer. De Boer has told the Italian press that he is more interested in coaching than managing so player purchases may well be the responsibility of the Tottenham Technical Director rather than the Head Coach, although Daniel Levy still plays a large role.

That is the system used on the continent all the time so one Frank de Boer will be familiar and comfortable with. He would of course still have the final say on players and suggest targets of his own.
