Ajax manager Erik ten Hag has dismissed talk of him taking over at Manchester United.
The Dutchman is being linked with a move to United following their sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Sunday.
Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers is also said to be a target for United while Paris Saint-Germain boss Mauricio Pochettino has been linked as well.
Rodgers said at the weekend that he is concentrating on City and dismissed talk that he could take over at United.
Tellingly, United said in a statement on Sunday after relieving Solskjaer of his duties that they would look to appoint an interim manager before making a long-term appointment in the summer.
Speaking at a press conference on Tuesday, ten Hag said: “Man United interest? I am busy with Ajax. No one contacted me, I can confirm this. I want to win titles here.”
Pochettino has spoken in similar terms about his plans for PSG while Rodgers revealed that he has spoken to his players about the speculation linking him with United.
“I was aware of that over the past few weeks,” he said. “I didn’t read so much, I don’t, but I heard little bits and pieces.
“It stabilises everything. You (the media) know how this gossip arises, and normally I don’t even think about it, but I understand that it may have a bearing for other people.
“It was a case of stabilising that by speaking to our senior guys. They know my commitment to them, they know my commitment to the club, and also to us becoming a better team.”
Those comments from ten Hag appear to rule him out of the running for United and Pochettino has also commented in a similar vein.
If United cannot get ten Hag or Pochettino, they could see Rodgers as an option.
He’s under contract until 2025 having penned an extension in December.
