Erik ten Hag will remain Ajax’s coach for the upcoming seasons. The coach has extended his contract until June 30, 2022. “We are looking ahead to the next few years with confidence”, said Marc Overmars, director of football affairs.
Overmars: “I believe that it’s good for Ajax that the coach, after such a successful season, remains active at the club for the next few years. We want to develop. That won’t be easy, as some key players will be leaving, but we hope to transition smoothly. Erik will need to make them a team again. That’s what we are trusting him to do.”
Erik ten Hag is pleased as well. “I’m very happy. We had a fantastic year and we want to continue to grow. Help the club move forward. The results we’ve achieved so far are amazing. It’s going to be a hell of a job to repeat this. But we will set our targets again and, once again, go for good results.”
49 year-old Ten Hag explains what he likes about working for Ajax. “The cooperation is very nice, at all levels within the club. The style of playing suits Ajax, and it suits me too. I appreciate the crowd very much as well.”
