Ajax media duo Kale & Kokkie let their anger known to the former Ajax manager, Erik Ten Hag, after the constant interest from the new Manchester United boss on their players. Even though, he has only brought with him his assistant coach, Mitchel van der Gaag, and Lisandro Martínez, players like Jurien Timber and Antony have been linked with the English side. 

This famous duo told 'AT5' that they don't want to know anything to do with him as he is driving their players crazy with all this transfer talk. “I'm so terribly done with that man. First he takes the assistant coach. Fine. Then drives Timber crazy, then Martínez and Antony again”. They also claim that Ten Hag wants to take the video analyst with him too.

There is no denial. Ten Hag wanted Antony as his top priority on the right wing and Manchester United's board made several attempts to sign him, but every offer was rejected by Ajax. Kale & Kokkie added: “Ajax has indicated 45 times that Antony is not for sale and he just keeps coming. I'm starting to find him really boring”.

Lastly, they mentioned that the last straw was him trying to steal a striker from them, with whom they had advanced negotiations. “He knows that Ajax is busy with Brian Brobbey and then you go and call him. Is that respect for you old club?”, they said. The Dutch giants are still in talks with RB Leipzig for the permanent transfer of Brobbey after a season-long loan last year.

Ten Hag is starting to loose the affection of Ajax fans

You can't blame Erik Ten Hag for wanting some of his star players which they already know and fit perfectly to his system after four years of success in the Eredivisie and the Champions League where they surprised the world with their offensive style of football. Nevertheless he may want to look for other transfer targets to still be remembered with love by some Ajax fans.
