Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has been criticised in the Netherlands for raiding his former club this summer.

The Dutch boss was named as United’s new permanent manager earlier this summer after Ralf Rangnick’s ill-fated spell came to an end.

He’s since set about overhauling the set-up at Old Trafford to better suit his liking, first building his backroom team with familiar faces such as assistant manager Mitchell van der Gaag and others.

There’s also been a heavy focus on several of his former players at Ajax as he looks to overhaul the Manchester United squad.

So far only Lisandro Martinez has arrived but the likes of Jurrien Timber, Brian Brobbey and Antony have also been linked with potential moves.

It seems that has not gone down well with those around his former club, who are less than impressed with his actions since joining Manchester United.

“One thing: leave Ten Hag in England. I’m so terribly done with that man,” Kokkie, from Ajax media duo Kale and Kokkie, told AT5.

“First he takes the assistant coach. Fine. Then he drives Timber crazy, drives Martínez crazy and then he wants the video analyst again. Then he drives Antony crazy again.

“Ajax has indicated 45 times that Antony is not for sale and he just keeps coming. I’m starting to find him really boring.

“He knows that Ajax is busy with Brobbey and then you go and call Brobbey. Is that respect for your old club?”
