Ajax boss Erik ten Hag has given up hope of leaving the Dutch giants soon, with Manchester United reportedly keen to bring him to Old Trafford. Manchester United’s interim manager, Ralf Rangnick, won his first game for Crystal Palace last Sunday, but will be in charge until the end of the season.
Ten Hag has reportedly been offered a place by Manchester United, but has expressed doubts about leaving Ajax in the middle of the season, with the club relegated to the Eredivisie and winning the group stages of the UEFA Champions League, having won all five. games this season.
“I think I’m ready [to move to a top foreign team],” Ten Hag replied when asked by Dutch newspaper Volkskrant.
“I would love to face that challenge but I am not in a hurry, if it turns out that the step will never come I will not say that my coaching job has failed.
“But I think I have enough qualifications to deal with that challenge.”
