Manchester United legend Edwin van der Sar says, his old club needs just two or three signings to be in a position to compete with rivals Liverpool and Manchester City. The goalkeeper helped transform Ajax into a force in Europe again in his position as CEO.

The 49-year-old has been linked with a return to Old Trafford in a similar role in the past.

“The honeymoon period was great,” Van der Sar told CNN. “Then they hit a rocky patch and I think the last seven, eight, nine weeks, they’ve been playing better football.

“The points were coming in. They had some good results against good teams also. Of course, for them, I hope that the league is going to resume because they probably will need those Champions League places.

“I think the main thing for them is to focus on the next season and, hopefully with two or three additions, they’ll be competitive again to Liverpool and Manchester City.”
