Ajax coach Ten Hag on Man City shortlist

Ajax coach Erik ten Hag is on Manchester City's radar.

The Telegraph says Ten Hag is on the shortlist to replace Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, while their local rivals Manchester United are eyeing the Dutchman to take over from interim manager Ralf Rangnick.

Ten Hag is viewed as one of the most progressive coaches in Europe after moulding a young Ajax side into Champions League competitors in 2019 and rebuilding the squad after his best players were snatched up by Europe's elite.

The 51-year-old's work at Ajax has rightfully garnered the attention of several top-flight clubs. Bayern Munich and Tottenham reportedly tried to court him, while Newcastle are said to have actively pursued him following the club's mega-money takeover.

The Dutchman is now said to be on the shortlist to replace Pep Guardiola at the Etihad, should the City boss step down.
