Plenty of Newcastle United fans have reacted with excitement as Erik ten Hag has been linked with the manager’s role at their club.¬†

After the Magpies finally parted ways with Steve Bruce, the next big step for the club’s new owners will likely be the appointment of a new manager.

However, the Premier League side are also reportedly interested in hiring a director of football to help guide the team on and off the pitch in the coming seasons.

Indeed, according to De Telegraaf (via Football Oranje), Marc Overmars, who is the current technical director at Ajax, is drawing interest from the Magpies as a possible candidate for the role – a story that already has many fans excited.

What’s more, De Telegraaf also claims (via Sport Witness) that if he is to get the role, Ten Hag – the current Ajax manager – may also be brought over by Overmars for the project on Tyneside.

NUFC 360 shared details of the new article on their Twitter page and it soon drew a big response from many of the club’s supporters.

Here’s what these Newcastle fans had to say…

“Never gonna happen but this would be the dream.”

“Amazing after many in the media has said Newcastle will struggle to attract people in a relegation fight, plenty of top names are clearly briefing the press about their desire for a role.”
“Wow. Literally a dream come true.”
“Unbelievable.”
“Who’s enjoying being a Newcastle fan right now!”
“I would definitely take Overmars with Ten Hag (and S√©bastien Haller in their bag).”
Ajax recently made headlines when their side blew away Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League. Indeed, goals from Daley Blind, Antony, Sebastien Haller and an own goal by Marco Reus helped the Dutch side win 4-0.
