Ajax head coach Erik ten Hag has suggested that he would not be interested in leaving the Dutch club.
The 51-year-old has been heavily linked with replacing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the hot seat at Manchester United but when asked about his future in management, ten Hag replied:
“I live in the present, so I find it hard to answer this. I always want to improve my team, and as long as I feel this motivation I want to keep going, if Ajax wants that too.”
With Ajax currently top of the Eredivisie and their Champions League group, ten Hag seems to be happy to stay where is, at least until the end of the season.
It, therefore, seems likely that United will have to look elsewhere if they do sack Solskjaer midway through the campaign. At the bookmakers, the current favourite is Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers.
The former Liverpool and Celtic boss is odds-on to make the switch to Old Trafford, with former Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane, PSG’s Mauricio Pochettino and Lokomotiv Moscow’s Head of Football Ralf Rangnick also believed to be in the frame.
