Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag signs a contract extension.



Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag signs a contract extension.

Erik ten Hag has extended his contract as Manchester United manager until 2026, putting an end to speculation about his possible departure. Despite winning the EFL Cup and the FA Cup during his two-year tenure, Ten Hag faced criticism over his Premier League performance last season.

The decision to extend Ten Hag’s contract demonstrates significant trust from United’s new-look board, who have decided to maintain stability in the managerial position amid growing concerns about his tactical approach and the club’s overall direction.

Ten Hag expressed his satisfaction with the new deal but acknowledged the challenges ahead for the club. “I am very pleased to have reached an agreement with the club to continue working together,” he said. “Looking back at the past two years, we can reflect with pride on two trophies and many examples of progression from where we were when I joined. However, we must also be clear that there is still lots of hard work ahead to reach the levels expected of Manchester United, which means challenging for English and European titles.”

Last season, United finished eighth, marking their worst performance in the Premier League era. This led many to believe that Ten Hag might be sacked after a series of poor performances. However, the FA Cup final victory against rivals Manchester City appears to have been a turning point, reinforcing the board’s decision to stick with the Dutchman.

Manchester United will begin their 2024/25 campaign against Manchester City in the Community Shield on Saturday, August 10th.
