Erik ten Hag reacts angrily to questions about Man United links

Ajax manager Erik ten Hag has reacted angrily to repeated questions about whether he will be taking over at Manchester United at the end of the season.

Ralf Rangnick is currently in interim charge of first-team matters at Old Trafford but he is moving into an advisory role in the summer.

United have stepped up their search for a permanent replacement, with 90min reporting earlier this week that the club were closing in on appointing Ten Hag.

With speculation ramping up, the Ajax boss has been getting more and more questions about his future at pre-match press conferences. This was again the case before his side’s game against Sparta Rotterdam on Saturday evening with Ten Hag growing tired of the repetitive line of enquiry.

“We are busy with training and with the matches,” he said when quizzed on Man Utd links. “That way you keep the focus on it. I want to talk about the game and not about other things and whether or not I’ve had conversations. I won’t comment on rumours.”

He later added: “Questions about the game or I am going inside.”
