Van der Sar poised to join Ajax board

Former keeper and Dutch international Edwin van der Sar is poised to join the management board at Amsterdam football club Ajax, the Telegraaf reports on Tuesday.

The paper says Van der Sar has reacted positively to an invitation from the club’s supervisory board to join the management team.
Van der Sar ended his professional career with Manchester United 18 months ago. If he joins Ajax, he will be the second ex-professional player on the board alongside Marc Overmars.
