Some Tottenham fans on social media are furious with Daniel Levy after it emerged today that Erik ten Hag has signed a contract extension with Ajax.
Spurs already suffered a major blow in their pursuit of a new manager when the club’s number one target Julian Nagelsmann agreed to join Bayern Munich at the end of the season.
Brendan Rodgers is rumoured to be the next name on Tottenham’s shortlist but reports indicate that the 48-year-old has no intention of leaving Leicester.
However, it has emerged today that Ten Hag has signed a one-year extension with Ajax and is now contracted to the Eredivisie club until 2023.
While some Spurs fans were furious with the development and felt that it was a damning indictment on Levy, a few others were still confident that the club will be able to attract a top-level coach like Rodgers.
We are finished

He doesn’t want to manage in a shiny new stadium & state of the art training facilities?

Tottenham need to make it as appealing to Brendan Rogers as possible to join. Up the salary, loosen the shackles on transfers. In theory we should be able to attract him, it’s our own fault if we can’t. https://t.co/XDdTESfWnH

Spurs Web Opinion
It is unclear if it was Ten Hag who rejected Spurs or if it was Levy who decided that the Dutchman was not a good fit. I can understand why the club would have had their doubts about Ten Hag as the 51-year-old is unproven outside the Ajax system and appointing him would have been a bit of a gamble.
