Erik ten Hag has added fuel to the possibility of becoming Manchester United’s next manager.
The Red Devils will be looking for a permanent man to take charge at Old Trafford ahead of the start of next season and the Ajax boss could be the man to take the hot seat.
Ralf Rangnick currently took over the club on an interim basis before taking on a ‘consultant’ role at the end of the season.
While he doesn’t rule out becoming the manager on a permanent basis, Man United could be prompted to opt for Ten Hag, especially after his latest comments.
“I think I’m ready for it (coach abroad). I would be happy to take on this challenge, ”Ajax boss told de Volkskrant.
“But I’m not chasing him. If it turns out that this step will never come, I won’t say my coaching career has failed.
“But I think I have enough skills to take on this challenge.”
If Man United replace Ten Hag it could mean a very exciting time for the club given what they have accomplished for Ajax so far.
Since his appointment in December 2017, the 51-year-old has guided the club to two league titles and two cup successes.
He was also responsible for Ajax’s memorable run to the Champions League semi-finals in 2018/19 and passed Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs de Ligt, who are now at Barcelona and Juventus respectively.
