Ajax manager Erik ten Hag would struggle to bring success to Tottenham if appointed manager.
That is the view of former Arsenal and Everton striker Kevin Campbell, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the prospect of the 51-year-old succeeding Jose Mourinho as the next permanent manager of the London club.
Fabrizio Romano claimed on Wednesday that Spurs have contacted representatives of the Ajax boss and scheduled a ‘direct meeting’ regarding their vacant position.
It is said that Erik ten Hag is open to leaving the Dutch champions this summer after three-and-a-half years in Amsterdam.
This site revealed on Monday that Brendan Rodgers is also being lined up for the position with Daniel Levy believing he can be persuaded to quit Leicester City for Spurs.
When asked by Football Insider for his assessment of the latest manager developments at Spurs, Campbell said:
“Mourinho has the best resume of the lot and it did not work out for him at Spurs so who is to say any of these managers could be a success.
“Erik ten Hag has been brilliant at Ajax but can he adapt to the Premier League? I do not know.
“It is a long shot considering the quality of the Premier League at the moment and the other managers that are here. It is a long shot.
“It would be a big step up for him to go from Ajax to Tottenham.”
