Man Utd legend Edwin van der Sar 'harassed' by fuming Ajax fans with security forced to intervene | The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED legend Edwin van der Sar and his family were "harassed and threatened" by yobs before Ajax's derby with Feyenoord, reports suggest.

The Amsterdam giants lost De Klassieker to their Rotterdam rivals with a score of 3-2 at the Johan Cruijff ArenA where some ugly scenes unfolded before kick-off.

According to De Telegraaf, four young and "drunk" men "cornered" Ajax chief executive Van der Sar and his family at the car park.

Security guards intervened and chucked all those fans out of the stadium.

The same report suggests the four supporters confronted the legendary goalkeeper because of his reported intention to reinstate disgraced Arsenal legend Marc Overmars to Ajax's hierarchy.

Overmars quit his role as director of football last year after his history of sexual misconduct came to light.

Ajax are now six points behind high-fliers Feyenoord and the top of the table.

The reigning Eredivisie champions remain second amid a turbulent campaign that saw them sack former manager Alfred Schreuder just a few months after he replaced United boss Erik ten Hag at the helm.

Everton cult hero John Heitinga stepped in to take Schreuder's place as interim boss until the end of the season.
