Erik Ten Hag has explained that he hasn’t spoken about his potential move to Manchester United because he was ‘still serving Ajax’.
The Dutch manager has been heavily linked with the Old Trafford job, with the Red Devils looking to replace caretaker boss Ralf Rangnick.
It is understood that Ten Hag is high on United’s wishlist following a remarkable interview with the club which led to him being preferred over Mauricio Pochettino.
However, the club and Ten Hag are yet to confirm this information.
“Because I serve Ajax. We have to win the remaining 2 trophies,” he replied.
When asked again if he was afraid to talk about the move, Ten Hag repeated: “Yeah, you can keep trying to ask me about it, but I’m here to talk about Ajax. .

Ten Hag’s response mirrors Rangnick’s when the interim United boss responded to rumors of the Dutchman’s appointment last week.
“I think it’s the press conference for tomorrow’s game and I don’t intend to talk about any new managers here,” Rangnick said, keeping his cards close to his chest.
“From what I know, all the managers the club has spoken to so far are top managers, top coaches.
“If that includes Erik Ten Hag, then that’s also true with him. That’s all I can say at this point.”
