Arsenal legend Marc Overmars hints he would take Edu’s ‘interesting’ job at club

Marc Overmars has hinted that he would be interested in taking over Edu's role at Arsenal as their new technical director.

The Arsenal legend is currently the director of football at Dutch giants Ajax, the side he played for before his move to the Gunners in 1997.

However, Overmars has recently revealed that he would be interested in making the switch from Amsterdam to London one more time.

“At a certain point, the thing is simple: either I continue and I stay here in Ajax or we go abroad again as a family," the Dutchman told Mundo Deportivo.

"I have let that train pass six times."

Overmars continued: "They are both interesting [speaking about moves to Arsenal or Barcelona]."

However, Overmars then confessed that a job at the Nou Camp is currently more attractive than one as part of Mikel Arteta's staff at the Emirates.

"I think my family would choose Spain. We lived there very comfortably.

"And I think they would also choose Barcelona."

Overmars joined Barcelona in 2000, and he spent four years in Spain with the Catalan giants before returning to Ajax in 2004.

The Dutchman spent three years in North London, and he made 100 appearances with 25 goals.

Arsene Wenger had decided to take a risk on Overmars when he brought him to the Gunners despite a significant knee injury the season beforehand.

In 2008, Arsenal fans voted Overmars as their 12th greatest player of all time.
