Erik ten Hag had absolutely no time for Sky Sports News reporter Gary Cotterill after being approached for comment following his appointment as Manchester United manager.
Ten Hag was announced as United's next permanent manager on Thursday morning after agreeing to a three-year deal with an option of a further year.
The Dutchman will take over at Old Trafford at the end of the season and currently remains in his role as Ajax head coach.
Sky Sports News reporter Cotterill was sent to the Netherlands on Friday to attempt to speak to Ten Hag outside Ajax's training ground.
Near the entrance of the training complex, Ten Hag wound down his car window to allow a young supporter and his father to get a photograph with him.
Cotterill saw his opportunity and attempted to speak to the Dutchman, congratulating him on his new role.
But Ten Hag was having none of it, holding up his hand to block the camera before driving away.
Speaking on Sky Sports News afterwards, Cotterill said Ten Hag would "have to get used to" the increased media coverage of him following his appointment at United.
"He looked a bit taken aback and surprised to have a Sky Sports microphone thrust in front of him," Cotterill told Sky Sports News.

"He didn't really want to say much did he? He’s going to have to get use to slightly less laid back atmosphere that they have out here in Amsterdam.
"That kind of thing, being at the centre of attention. He's the new Manchester United manager.
"It was surprising to me that he looked surprised. That the biggest football channel in England came to see how he was, to wish him congratulations and to try and get a word.
"Maybe there will be a little bit of an adaption coming for him over the next few months."
