Erik ten Hag Set For a Shock Return to Ajax as United Sack Looms


Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag could return to Ajax in the summer following his dwindling fortunes at Manchester United.

The Dutch tactician has fallen below expectations at Manchester United and could be relieved of his managerial duties at Old Trafford at the end of the season.

According to Daily Mail, Ajax are interested in bringing back Erik ten Hag to the club as manager. The report adds the Ajax board are willing to have the Dutch back following the club’s dwindling fortunes since his departure in 2022.

Erik ten Hag was thrust into the limelight following his impressive run in the dugout as Ajax manager. He developed the club into one of the most exciting teams in Europe. One of his most magical moments was leading the Dutch giants to the semifinal of the UEFA Champions League after eliminating Italian heavyweight Juventus in round 16 and European giants Real Madrid in the quarterfinal.

He also won six domestic silverware with the club comprising three Eredivisie titles, 2 KNVB Cups, and one Johan Cruyff Shield.

While a return to the Dutch giants is not ruled out, sources close to the Man United manager reveal he does not fancy a move back to Holland but would prefer another top job in the elite leagues in Europe should he leave Man United.

Meanwhile, it is understood Manchester United have yet to decide on ten Hag’s future. United’s new co-owner and football enthusiast Sir Jim Ratcliffe is reportedly exploring his options, and will certainly take a decision on Ten Hag’s future at the end of the season.

So far, sources close to the United boardroom reveal Erik ten Hag could be sacked at the end of the season following United’s failure to qualify for the Champions League next season.

Moreover, the Dutch recently ruled out the club from competing for the Premier League title next season, sparking criticisms from fans for his clueless and abject take on the club’s prospects.
