"We want to work on a successful and attractive Ajax,” Ten Hag kicks notes. "I know what I have here and I know the people I work with here. I also know how we can take the next step with this team. I'm happy here."
"Getting somewhere is one thing, staying somewhere is another. Ajax is back on the map internationally. We get the recognition we deserve for that, but we want even more. We want to go even higher and challenge the top clubs in Europe."
Ten Hag attracted serious offers from teams abroad, adds Overmars. "But I think it is very important for Erik that he sees what is possible with the team and that there is still room for growth."
The fact that his name is on many club’s most wanted lists means, according to Ten Hag, that Ajax is doing well. "You can see then that the players are getting the attention, but also coaches. Our success has earned us credit not only in the Netherlands, but also abroad."
