Ajax assistant Bergkamp rules himself out of Swansea running

Dennis Bergkamp says he does not want to be the next Swansea manager and is committed with his work at Ajax.

Bergkamp has been assistant boss at the four-time European champions since 2011 and he told Voetbal International magazine: "I currently have no ambition to become a head coach.
