“I had a good feeling about the club and the prospect of managing a team in the Premier league was exciting,” De Boer said. Asked to outline the target for his first season, he said: “To be a solid Premier League team and not to struggle against relegation – that’s the main target. If we can do more that’s nice but first to be a very solid Premier League club.”

De Boer has been out of work since leaving Internazionale in November after three unsuccessful months there. However the 47-year-old impressed while in charge of Ajax, the club where he began his playing career in 1988 and won the Champions League seven years later.

He returned in 2007 as a youth coach and went on to take charge of the first team over a six-season spell that led to four Eredivisie titles.
