“I live in the present, so I find it hard to answer this,” Erik ten Hag told ESPN when asked about his future after Ajax.
“I always want to improve my team, and as long as I feel this motivation I want to keep going if Ajax wants that too.”
Ten Hag, who was also linked with the Newcastle job, was asked why he opted against managing them. He replied: “Because I am happy at Ajax.
“I have a very good relationship with the board and I’m managing a very strong squad.”
Ten Hag clearly won’t leave the Eredivisie side mid-season and might not even be convinced to jump ship to manage Manchester United in the summer.
As things stand, Brendan Rodgers is reportedly the leading candidate to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. It’s been reported that he’s looking for houses in Manchester already.
