New Man Utd boss Ten Hag open to future Ajax return - with Overmars

New Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag says he could yet return to Ajax with former sporting director Marc Overmars.

Overmars quit the Dutch champions in February over inappropriate messages sent to female colleagues, and has since joined Royal Antwerp.

Ten Hag has long credited the former Arsenal star for his part in Ajax's title success.

"We humans are in this world to help each other not to shoot each other," he said.

"This championship is also his championship. We built this team together. After the game against Heerenveen, I also congratulated Marc with the title via text.

"It's a romantic thought to return to Ajax together one day. We have been very successful together. It's hard to say if it will happen, but it could happen."
