Erik ten Hag already ‘congratulated’ over Man Utd job and gives classy response

Incoming Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has delivered a classy response to a journalist who 'congratulated' his appointment.

Ten Hag has reportedly agreed terms with United to take over in the summer when Ralf Rangnick's interim deal expires. However, when Ten Hag was asked why he was 'keeping quiet' about current reports the Dutchman was quick to respond.

“Because I serve Ajax. We need to win the two remaining trophies," the Dutchman replied to the room of journalists. He added: “I am not afraid. I will repeat myself one more time. Do you have questions about the cup final? About Ajax?"

Ten Hag has transformed Ajax back into a European heavyweight despite the constant revolving door of talent at the Amsterdam based club.

The Dutchman build a team that feature stars such as Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs de Ligt that reached the semi-finals of the Champions League. That side had been within touching distance of the final, but a quick-fire hat-trick from Lucas Moura sent Tottenham through.

Ten Hag lost his best players that summer, but he has still managed to keep Ajax a threat in Europe's premier competition.
