Announced as Tottenham’s priority target for next season after the dismissal of José Mourinho, Erik Ten Hag has extended for a year with Ajax Amsterdam. The Dutch technician is now linked with the club until June 2023.
Tottenham can draw a cross on one of their priority tracks. Targeted to take the reins of Spurs next season after the dismissal of José Mourinho, Erik Ten Hag will not join the London team.
At Ajax since 2017, the 51-year-old Dutch technician will continue the adventure with the ajacid team. This Friday, the legendary Dutch club formalized the extension of its trainer until June 2023, that is to say for one more year.
As indicated by RMC Sport, the English had formalized their interest with the technician and now had to present their project and their offer to the coach. For his part, Ten Hag aspired to finish the season in the league and offer a new title to Ajax before studying his future.
After Nagelsmann, Tottenham takes a serious chill
Since the departure of José Mourinho, Tottenham have placed their ex-player, Ryan Mason, on the bench. The former midfielder was promoted to the Spurs bench at just 29 when he had to end his career prematurely after a serious head injury in 2017.
After the departure of the Portuguese, Tottenham then communicated that Ryan Mason would act until the end of the season. But the London board was already studying the different possible options for next season.
According to the indiscretions of Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Spurs had approached Julian Nagelsmann but the German quickly declined the offer to finally join Bayern Munich, which he will coach next season.
Lately, the name of Erik Ten Hag came back with insistence on the side of Tottenham. With the extension of the Dutch technician to Ajax, Tottenham sees a new track take off.
Sky Sports have also placed Leicester City coach Brendan Rodgers in the sights of Spurs in recent days. However, the Foxes technician has no intention of joining Tottenham and has more confidence in Leicester’s ambitious project with many promising players on hand.
