Erik ten Hag (born 2 February 1970) is a Dutch football manager and a former player who played as a centre-back. He is currently the manager of Ajax.

As a player, he notably had three stints with FC Twente.

Coaching career[edit]

In 2012, he was appointed manager of Go Ahead Eagles in the Eerste Divisie by Marc Overmars, who was a shareholder of the club.[1][2].

He coached Bayern Munich II from 6 June 2013 until 2015 when he was replaced by Heiko Vogel.[3][4] His final match as Bayern Munich II head coach was a 1–0 loss to FC Nürnberg II on 22 May 2015.[5]

Ten Hag then became the Sporting Director and head coach of FC Utrecht in summer 2015, where he led the club to the fifth placed during his first season.[6] The club also won the KNVB Cup during the same season. In the 2016–2017 season, he improved Utrecht's final position to fourth, booking a place in the Europa League qualifiers.

On 21 December 2017, he was appointed as the head coach of Ajax Amsterdam after the club dismissed Marcel Keizer.
