Watch Erik ten Hag snub reporters as incoming boss dodges all Man Utd questions on arrival at Ajax training

ERIK TEN HAG may be the new manager of Manchester United, but his mind is still firmly focused on seeing out the season with Ajax.

So much so he drove away when quizzed by a reporter on his new role as he arrived at Ajax’s training ground.

Driving into Ajax’s HQ in Amsterdam yesterday behind the wheel of a Mercedes, Ten Hag rolled his window down to take a photo with a fan.

A Sky Sports reporter was also stationed at the scene – primed to ask Ten Hag about his upcoming position at Old Trafford.

They began: “Erik congratulations…”

But the 52-year-old was not remotely interested, holding up his hand to shoo the reporter away before driving off.

The Sky journalist was then left chasing after the Dutchman’s car following the brutal snub.

Ten Hag is set to assume control of Manchester United in the summer, having agreed a three-year deal with the club.

But he insisted following the announcement that he remains fully focused on his job at Ajax as he closes in on another Eredivisie crown.

Part of his statement upon joining United read: “It will be difficult to leave Ajax after these incredible years, and I can assure our fans of my complete commitment and focus on bringing this season to a successful conclusion before I move to Manchester United.”


Meanwhile he told Ajax’s website: “I’m happy that it has been finalized and that it has been officially announced. That clarity is important.

“But I only have one interest now and that’s these last five games. I want to finish my time here on a positive note, by winning the league.

“By doing so, we’ll qualify directly for the Champions League. Ajax belongs there.”
