Ten Hag: 'We’ve faced challenges before'

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.

'Strong connection'

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.”
