Ajax manager Erik ten Hag has responded to recent reports linking him with succeeding interim boss Ralf Rangnick at Manchester United.
Rangnick is set to leave his managerial role at the end of the season, paving the way for a new, permanent boss to take over, but who that man (or woman) may be remains unknown.
Several names have been linked, including Leicester City’s Brendan Rodgers and Paris-Saint Germain’s Mauricio Pochettino.
Erik ten Hag to Man United?
However, following an impressive spell with Dutch club Ajax, ten Hag has also emerged as a possible candidate to take the Old Trafford hot seat.
With Ajax set to take on Benfica in a second leg Champions League knockout tie on the same night that the Red Devils host Atletico Madrid, ten Hag was asked by BT Sport before his side’s game whether or not he’s open to a move to the Premier League.
“I don’t think it’s today – the issue is about today’s game [vs Benfica],” ten Hag said.
“I focus on that and don’t pay any attention to other subjects.
“I only focus on Ajax.”
