Tottenham ace Van der Vaart wants Ajax return - as team manager

Tottenham midfielder Rafael van der Vaart has ambitions of returning to Ajax - as a team manager.

Van der Vaart says he wants to stay involved in football once he hangs up the boots.

"I would like to be a figure between the trainer and technical director," said Van der Vaart. "I can help the guys, talk to them, you name it.

"A squad is now so big that they receive little attention in this regard. Sometimes players fall by the wayside, even treated as garbage."
