Ajax were confirmed champions this week, Erik ten Hag’s third consecutive league title in Holland, and after celebrations tonight are set to fly to Curacao on Tuesday for a few days. While there, the players will play a friendly against the Curacao national team, visit schools and enjoy their time on the Caribbean island.
Ten Hag’s contract continued for a further six weeks but that has been terminated and reports suggest he is set to fly to Manchester on Monday to start work at his new club.
Speaking to the press following his final game in charge, Ten Hag outlined his plans.
It’s time to turn the switch now. It’s something that is needed because there is a lot to take care off and I have the energy for it.
Tomorrow there will be a party with the (Ajax) staff, but I am not going to Curacao. I think that’s understandable. There is a lot of work to do there (at United). That is the case with every club. A number of things still need to be organised in the staff and also in the selection. We will be working intensively on this from tomorrow.
There have been some suggestions that Ten Hag will attend Manchester United’s final game of the season next weekend against Crystal Palace but that hasn’t been confirmed.
