Erik ten Hag’s future at Manchester United: What we’re hearing

Manchester United have announced that Erik ten Hag has agreed to extend his contract with the club until June 2026. The extension comes after the Dutchman led his side to FA Cup glory at the end of what was a dismal campaign in the Premier League and Champions League.

“I am very pleased to have reached agreement with the club to continue working together.”

“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.”

“In my discussions with the club, we have found complete unity in our vision for reaching those goals, and we are all strongly committed to making that journey together,” Ten Hag said.

Manchester United’s new sporting director Dan Ashworth added: “With two trophies in the past two seasons, Erik has reinforced his record as one of the most consistently successful coaches in European football. While the club’s review of last season highlighted areas for improvement, it also reached a clear conclusion that Erik was the best partner for us to work with in driving up standards and outcomes.

“This group of players and staff have already shown they are capable of competing and winning at the top level; now we need to do it more consistently,” Ashworth continued. “With our strengthened football leadership team now in place, we are looking forward to working hand-in-hand with Erik to achieve our shared ambitions for this football club.”

At the conclusion of the campaign, Manchester United spoke to several candidates including Thomas Tuchel, but ultimately decided Ten Hag deserved to stay on after an injury-ravaged season.
