Bayern Munich has recently vacated its hot seat. And now their former youth coach, Ten Hag, has said that he is not interested to take up the chance.
When asked if he plans to stay with his current employers, he replied: “I can confirm that. I feel a strong connection with my team, with everyone with Ajax. I can confirm I will stay in Ajax this season.”
“Bayern is a fantastic club – I felt really comfortable and really enjoyed working there. They are still in my heart, but now I am with Ajax,” he said.
“I’m not a dreamer – I focus on Ajax and that’s important. I live for today, my only focus is on Ajax and tomorrow’s game with Chelsea.”
“They are one of the favourites,” he said. “It’s going to be difficult, but every game is going to be difficult. We trust in ourselves.
“We know we have to play perfectly, give our best performance. Then we will have a chance.”
Chelsea defeated Ajax 1-0 in the previous fixture away at Holland thanks to a late goal by Michy Batshuayi. The Blues will want to get another win to get closer to qualification.
