Erik Ten Hag was interviewed for the Nice manager’s job last summer

As reported by Foot Mercato, highly regarded Ajax head coach Erik Ten Hag was interviewed by OGC Nice in their search for a new manager this summer.

The Dutchman, now 51, however, was overlooked in favour of reigning Ligue 1 title-winning coach Christophe Galtier who won the league with Lille last season and gave a convincing interview.

A coach of Ten Hag’s profile, meanwhile, wasn’t considered to be the right fit for this early stage in the club’s project following the arrival of INEOS.
