Is Ten Hag about to leave Ajax?
Ajax director of football Marc Overmars has said that Ten Hag, the Ajax coach will still be in charge of his side next season.
“Ten Hag can easily last another season after next summer,” he told De Telegraaf.
“I certainly won’t let him go yet, although I know that he is on lists at major European clubs. That door will remain closed for the time being.”
There are also rumors of many players being chased by other European giants. Overmars had his say on that as well.
“With Hakim, I regularly think he has reached his ceiling but every season he takes another step,” Overmars said. “I sometimes tell him he can become Mr. Ajax, so why leave?
“But if we’re being honest, he is 27 years old and at his peak. If he can make the step he has in mind then of course it would be allowed of us.”
He also discussed the future of de Beek.
“Next summer I expect a lot more interest in our players,” Overmars said. “It becomes harder to keep our squad intact. Ajax players are loved everywhere.
“Think of Van de Beek and Ziyech. They have been here a long time and have brought Ajax so much beauty.”
