The Dutch giants, who are two points clear of great rivals PSV at the top of the Eredivisie, released a humorous video with the soundtrack, ‘Born to be Wild’ by Steppenwolf, as the legendary defender conducts training in unusual style.
De Boer, who enjoyed a distinguished playing career with Ajax and Barcelona and won 112 international caps, has Arsenal legends Dennis Bergkamp, assistant manager, and Marc Overmars, director of football, in his coaching set-up.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp admits it was a “special feeling” to return to his former club Borussia Dortmund as his side earned a valuable 1-1 away draw in the Europa League.
“Going onto the pitch there was a polite applause and I made a small gesture in return,” the 48-year-old, who managed Dortmund for seven years between 2008 and 2015, said.
“Coming back was good – it’s a great place to play football and the people here are very special as well. It felt special coming back.”
