Frank de Boer leaves Ajax to seek new horizons maybe on Merseyside?

Ajax Amsterdam and coach Frank de Boer have parted company after six-years.


De Boer was highly critical of the team after they failed to win at second from bottom De Graafschap allowing rivals PSV Eindhoven to grab the title.

Merseyside may be in his plans.
