Speaking to talkSPORT, dropping his verdict on the heavy links with Ajax boss Erik Ten Hag, pundit Jason Cundy has claimed he could be the ‘ambitious’ appointment Tottenham Hotspur need – with the 51-year-old coaching a style of football that Lilywhites fans ‘want to see’.
Ten Hag has moved up the Spurs managerial shortlist after it was confirmed that exciting young coach Julian Nagelsmann has taken the job at Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich (official).
Cundy reacts as Spurs eye Ten Hag
Indeed, the 33-year-old was reportedly top choice for Tottenham, but chairman Daniel Levy and co will now need to look elsewhere for a boss who can elevate them to the desired level.
Eredivisie coach Ten Hag is currently being linked, and Cundy believes he could be a good candidate for the role at Spurs.
“I think Spurs need to move forward and be a bit ambitious about their new boss.” explained the former Lilywhites defender to talkSPORT.
When asked who could come as that ‘ambitious’ appointment, Cundy explained:
“Ten Haag’s been linked, the style of play at Ajax is befitting of what Spurs fans want to see.”
Transfer Tavern take
The Dutchman has been likened to Pep Guardiola, even once working at Bayern Munich with the Manchester City boss.
Indeed, Ten Hag was the Bayern II reserve coach while Guardiola took charge of the first team – and he was apparently given that role due to his glowing reputation with young players.
Given these aspects of Ten Hag’s managerial style, he could come as a really sound alternative to Nagelsmann.
