Erik ten Hag to Continue as Manchester United Manager After End-of-Season Review



Erik ten Hag to Continue as Manchester United Manager After End-of-Season Review

Manchester United are set to retain Erik ten Hag as their manager for the upcoming season, despite speculation about his future following an end-of-season review by INEOS. This review came after United’s FA Cup victory over Manchester City, sparking rumors of a possible managerial change. However, the review concluded with “constructive conversations,” and both parties decided to continue working together, with discussions of a potential contract extension now on the table.

Ten Hag’s contract, which runs until June 2025, has seen mixed results since he took over from interim manager Ralf Rangnick. During his tenure, United finished eighth in the Premier League last season and exited the Champions League at the group stage, but they also secured the EFL Cup with a 2-0 win over Newcastle and achieved a top-four finish in his first campaign. Notably, Ten Hag’s tenure began with losses in his first two Premier League matches, making him the first United manager since 1921 to start with such a record.

Despite these ups and downs, United’s decision to stick with Ten Hag indicates confidence in his ability to guide the team forward. His management style, combined with the recent appointments of Jason Wilcox as technical director and Omar Berrada as the new chief executive, signals a strategic approach to rebuilding and future success.

The decision to continue with Ten Hag also precludes the need to consider other potential candidates, such as England’s Gareth Southgate, former Chelsea managers Mauricio Pochettino and Thomas Tuchel, and Ipswich Town’s Kieran McKenna. This continuity could provide stability for the team as they aim to improve their standing in the Premier League and perform better in European competitions.
