Ajax youngster Amorricho van Axel Dongen has hinted that he could be tempted to follow Erik ten Hag to Manchester United at some point in the future.
Ten Hag is now in the seat at Old Trafford after being tasked with bringing back the good times. After a shaky start, it seems as if the Dutchman’s message is finally getting through. Four straight wins in the top flight sees the Red Devils fifth in the standings.
And while a title challenge seems unlikely, there is now more cohesion in the ranks. It always looked likely that Ten Hag would turn to his former club when recruiting this summer.
And he struck Ajax twice, with Lisandro Martinez and Antony making the switch from the Johan Cruyff Arena to the Theater of Dreams.
He also brought in Tyrell Malacia from Eredivisie side Feyenoord, while Casemiro arrived from Real Madrid. Ten Hag handed 17-year-old Van Axel Dongen his first-team debut last season.
And the talented star won’t forget the 52-year-old’s impact on his career.
“I will be eternally grateful to him for giving me the opportunity as a young player to play football with players like Antony and Dusan Tadic,” he said. Football zone.
“And I think it’s great to see that things are going a bit better with Manchester United; I really wish that for him.”
Van Axel Dongen is already turning heads
Van Axel Dongen caught the attention of some clubs in the summer of 2020. Chelsea were said to be at the front of the queue for his signature at that time.
Both Manchester City and Manchester United were mentioned in relation to talent. It remains to be seen what happens in the future.
The star is currently looking for a new deal with the Amsterdam giants. But he suggested a meeting with the former Ajax boss could be found.
“Unfortunately, I haven’t had the chance to talk to him [Ten Hag] since his transfer to United, but who knows, our paths may cross in the future,” he added. “To be honest, I’m not currently in the process of renewing my contract.
“At the moment I’m going to focus entirely on staying fit and playing and seeing what happens. Talks aren’t underway yet, but they could always be.”
Ten Hag has been credited with bringing in a number of youngsters while at Ajax. And it’s no wonder players want to work with him.
For now, the task is to capitalize on the improved form, with Leeds United set to visit Old Trafford next Sunday. Before that, United are in the Europa League when they head to Moldova to face Sheriff Tiraspol on Thursday.
The North West side lost 1-0 to Real Sociedad in their opening group game earlier this week.
