Highly-regarded Ajax coach Frank De Boer has turned down the chance to manage Tottenham and Liverpool, according to his brother Ronald.

De Boer has led Ajax to three consecutive league titles since taking over. He has been strongly linked with Spurs and, most recently, Manchester United, with reports suggesting he could form a Dutch dream team alongside Louis van Gaal.

According to Ronald De Boer, his brother rejected Tottenham in January, while Liverpool made their approach last year.

He told talkSPORT: "Frank has already denied Liverpool and Tottenham. Tottenham wanted to take him in January, but Frank said no.

"He also said no to Liverpool last year. He thought he was still not ready and wanted to learn more.

"Now he's ready, though. We'll have to wait and see (what offers he gets). It's important for Frank to get the right club otherwise he won't leave Ajax. He's very happy there."
