Erik Ten Hag Talks About Marc Overmars Resignation
MDP Live - Ajax Amsterdam manager, Erik Ten Hag, finally opened his voice to comment on the resignation of Marc Overmars a few days ago. Ten Hag said he was very surprised by the news.
After 10 years of serving as director of football for Ajax Amsterdam, on Tuesday Marc Overmars officially resigned from his position. Overmars himself chose to step down after short messages that smelled of sexual harassment to his female co-workers were spread.
Overmars himself and Erik Ten Hag who have worked together since 2017 are known as a great duo. The reason is that since handling Ajax, Ten Hag has won three domestic trophies and reached the semifinals of the 2019 Champions League.
Responding to the news, Ten Hag admitted that he was very surprised. He even needed time to consider his future at Ajax.
"Marc Overmars and I are definitely a strong duo. But to think about this now … it's not just about me," Ten Hag told ESPN.
"We have to digest well what happened. I will start to see the consequences. I will not think about my future for now."
"I'm fine, but I know what you mean. We had a really bad day. I really couldn't believe it when I first heard it."
"This is a disaster especially for the victims; the women. I understand the hardship and suffering they are going through."
"Everyone processes this in their own way. I then pulled away a little bit and I was a little calmer than usual. As a coach you naturally have to radiate energy, but it was difficult in the last few days."
Not Pochettino, Rangnick Finds The Right Successor At Manchester United
MDP Live - Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick has reportedly found a person who is considered worthy of being his successor. Rangnick has also recommended to MU to use the coach of his choice.
Rangnick will only manage Manchester United until the end of this season. Starting the 2022/2023 season, Manchester United will use a permanent coach. Until now, MU is still hunting for a permanent coach for next season.
Initially, Paris Sait Germain coach Mauricio Pochettino was the favorite to become Manchester United's permanent coach starting next season. MU has long had a crush on the Argentinian man.
But Rangnick claimed Le Parisien had a different choice from the MU management. Rangnick reportedly prefers Erik ten Hag as his successor.
Ralf Rangnick has suggested to MU officials to prefer Ten Hag over Pochettino. Rangnick is more confident in Ten Hag's performance.
Ten Hag was a huge success at Ajax Amsterdam. Since taking charge in December 2017, Ten Hag has won two Eredivisie titles and two Dutch Cups.
Not only the title, the Dutchman can also present attractive games and attract young players.
MU's opportunity to get the Ten Hag is quite open. Ten Hag's contract with Ajax will expire in June 2023. The 51-year-old man is also reportedly ready to try a new challenge.
MU negotiations with Ajax will not be too difficult. The reason is that Ajax officials are Edwin van der Sar who is none other than the former goalkeeper of the Red Devils.
