Ajax boss Erik ten Hag worked as Bayern Munich II’s manager from 2013 to 2015 and he might return to the German Bundesliga if needed.

Between 2013 and 2015 Ajax boss Erik ten Hag was the Bayern Munich II’s manager in the German fourth tier.

And now that there is pressure on head coach Niko Kovac, he says he won’t rule returning to the Bundesliga.

“I do not exclude anything,” he was quoted by Goal.

“But I’m almost 50 and not a dreamer, it comes – or it does not come – I’m totally happy and happy with Ajax, even though I know that I will not be a coach here for 10 years.”

“The day will eventually come to say goodbye,” he added.

Ajax and Chelsea will play each other on Wednesday, and ter Hag said the following about his next rival: “That’s an incredibly good team.”

“I don’t want to be too humble and see us as an underdog but nevertheless, when a Dutch team plays against the second team from France, the fourth and cup winner from Spain and a Premier League club then we definitely are.”

He explained: “But, we have self-confidence and developed a playing style with which we can cause problems for any opponent. We aren’t afraid of any team and can beat Chelsea. But for that, we need a top performance.”
