Ajax is hoping to take a step closer to remaining in the Champions League after the winter break. Coach Erik ten Hag knows that his team has a big job ahead, but he is confident. “It will be tough, but we’ve faced big challenges before. We’ll need to deliver a good performance if we want a shot at a good outcome.”
Ten Hag took the opportunity at the press conference to make a statement. Rumours have been circling about Bayern Munich’s interest in him. The German club has parted ways with coach Niko Kovac and, according to German media, Ten Hag is a potential successor. Ajax’s coach was the trainer of the Bayer reserves team several years ago.
Ten Hag said that he is not considering a move right now. “I can confirm that I’ll be staying with Ajax this season. I feel a strong connection with the players and with many people at the club. Ajax is a fantastic club to work for.”
