Manager Ten Hag expects to stay at Ajax

Ajax head coach Erik ten Hag, who plans to see out his contract amid links with La Liga champions Barcelona.

Ten Hag oversaw a memorable campaign for Dutch giants Ajax, which included a fairytale run to the Champions League semi-final.

Ajax – who are set to win their first league title in five years – stunned Real Madrid and Juventus before suffering a heartbreaking defeat to Tottenham following a remarkable collapse in Amsterdam earlier this month.

Ten Hag’s work with Ajax has not gone unnoticed, with the 49-year-old a reported candidate to replace Ernesto Valverde should Barca decide to make a change.

The former Bayern Munich II and Utrecht boss – who led Ajax to their first piece of silverware since 2014 via the KNVB Cup – was asked about his future and he told reporters: “I have a contract here and I enjoy it. We’re working on the future, so I’m not thinking about that right now.”
