Ajax boss Erik ten Hag is one of the favourites for the Manchester United job, reports have claimed.

Recent rumours have it that Ten Hag is already taking English lessons ahead of the job.

However, Ten Hag has admitted that the rumours are wrong and he’s always had a good grasp of the English language.

“No, that (report) is not true!” said ten Hag.

“We (already) talk English at the club because there are a lot of foreign players in Holland and they are already educated in English so (it makes sense).”

Before Ajax Champions League exit against Benfica, ten Hag also admitted that he wasn’t thinking about leaving Ajax yet.

“I do not think that is an issue today, this evening is all about our match,” he said.

“I am focused on that and I do not pay any attention to other subjects. My only focus is Ajax vs Benfica.”
