United legend keen on OT return

With Manchester United enduring their worst start to a Premier League season in three decades, a club legend has opened the door for a potential return.
 
United's struggles since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson has been highly publicised with David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho and now Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
 
 
With the club now aiming to build a new foundation for the future with a director of football to aid Solskjaer within the rebuilding phase of the sqaud - former goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar has been mooted as the ideal candidate.
 
And the club legend, who is currently the Chief Executive Officer of Ajax Amsterdam confirmed it's a role that he'd be interested in.
 
"Besides my family, the wife, kids and friends, I have two loves in my life, Ajax, who scouted me and gave me the chance to shine in the world of football and Manchester United, who helped me to develop even at the end of my career," he told Sports Illustrated.
 
"Of course I'd be interested in a position, but at first I think I need to learn a little bit more here at Ajax and develop myself even further.
 
"Let's see what the future brings, United is a fantastic club, with a great following all over the world," he added.
 
"I'm the chief executive at Ajax, United are looking for a different position, a director of football, it's a different role. I know a little bit about football of course."
 
Van der Sar won four Premier League titles and the Champions League in six seasons before announcing his retirement from football.
