Ajax eye return for Ten Hag if sacked by Manchester United

Ajax are reportedly eyeing a return for Erik ten Hag, considering him their top target if he is sacked by Manchester United.

The Dutch giants are keen to bring back the under-fire Red Devils boss, who previously enjoyed a successful stint with the club.

Ten Hag is currently facing increasing pressure at Old Trafford amidst a disappointing second season.

He has seen his side struggle in the Premier League, sitting in sixth place and out of contention for Champions League football next season.

Despite reaching the FA Cup final, United’s recent form, including a semi-final scare against Coventry City and a draw with Burnley, has increased doubts about Ten Hag’s future.

While the Dutchman faces criticism from frustrated United fans, his reputation remains strong in his homeland, with Ajax eager for his return.

Ten Hag previously led Ajax to three Eredivisie titles, two Dutch Cups, and a memorable run to the Champions League semi-finals.

Ajax, however, understands that Ten Hag may be hesitant to leave Manchester United and are reportedly monitoring the situation, should he be sacked.

Meanwhile, other candidates such as Graham Potter and Francesco Farioli are also being considered by Ajax, with interim coach John van ‘t Schip currently in charge until the end of the season.
