Ajax head coach Erik ten Hag will not be the new head coach of the Netherlands.

Ronald Koeman left his role as national team boss this week and the KNVB are now on the lookout for a new manager to lead Oranje to the European Championships.

However, that man will not be Erik ten Hag, with the Ajax boss ruling himself out of the running.

He told NOS, “It is a very interesting job, but I am affiliated with Ajax and I am happy here. It’s out of the question for this season.

“Next season is next season, but I’m happy here and committed to Ajax, so it’s fine.”

Is Oranje eventually a job for Ten Hag?  “I will have to think about that, but it is an interesting job. We are heading towards the season with Ajax. That gives me energy and jitters, so that is the focus.”
