The former Manchester United goalkeeper and current Ajax chief executive has come forward to criticize Erik Ten Hag for attacking his former club in search of their best player.
Van der Sar says ex-Ajax boss didn’t help them To attract them to England by constantly trying to attract their stars.
During the transfer window, United set their sights on Ajax, signing Lisandro Martinez and Anthony, who started well at Old Trafford.
The total cost of both is 167 million euros.
The Manchester United legend told BT Sport: “The fate of Ajax is that we always develop and discover very good players, sometimes even young players.”
“If they want to take the next step, they always go to England, Germany, Spain or something like that.”
“So of course we lose Erik [ten Hag]. We know we have lost a great manager. Yes, he didn’t really help us. “
On the Ten Witches hit against Martinez and Anthony, he said: “Of course he also took two of our best players with him. [Antony and Martinez], we got a good transfer fee for them. “
“Of course, that’s the fate of Ajax.”
Van der Sar appears to have given up on Ajax’s role as a selling club, having recently signed a new deal which will keep him with the reigning Eredivisie champions until 2025.
Whenever a deadlock occurs, the 51-year-old has played a key role in sometimes helping United and Ajax break the deadlock.
It is in United’s interests that he remains in charge of the Dutch club.
