Ajax coach Erik ten Hag has underlined his intention to finish the season in the Netherlands amid reports that Bayern München are interested in bringing him in to succeed Niko Kovac who was relieved of his duties on Sunday.

"I have a strong connection with my team, with everyone at Ajax, so I can confirm that I stay at Ajax this season," ten Hag told reporters, according to AFP.


Ten Hag, who was the coach of Bayern München's reserves from 2013 to 2015, didn't want to rule out that he could return to his former club in the future, though.

"Bayern is a fantastic club, I felt really comfortable and really enjoyed to work there and they are still in my heart but now I'm in Ajax," he said and added:

"I'm not a dreamer, I focus on Ajax, and that is important. I live for today and my only focus is on Ajax."

Ten Hag was appointed Ajax coach in December 2017.
