Marco van Basten is urging Klaas Jan Huntelaar to stay with him at Ajax next season.
"He (Van Basten) has told me that he wants me to stay," Huntelaar told Spanish newspaper AS.
"He said that he wants to build a competitive team that can win important trophies in Europe and for that he needs people like me to stay on."
When asked what he thought about not playing for Holland at Euro 2008 so far under Van Basten he said: "Well, I thought 'And this guy wants me to stay at Ajax?'
"Of course that's a joke. But we'll see what happens.
"I've got a contract with Ajax. I still have a lot of options and I want to wait until after the European Championship to make a decision."
