Erik ten Hag set for Man United contract extension

SportsJOE

After weeks of back and forth ten Hag gets his reward.

Erik ten Hag is set to receive a contract extension as the manager of Manchester United.

After spending the last three weeks on the brink of departure from the club, the new part-owners, Ineos, have decided to stick with the 54-year-old Dutchman.

The new deal is expected to keep the former Ajax manager at Old Trafford for another two years.

Last season was a struggle for ten Hag’s men who finished 8th place in the Premier League, their worst ever finish.

Before opting to stick with the current manager, United had looked at hiring the services of Thomas Tuchel, Thomas Frank, Roberto de Zerbi and Mauricio Pochettino.

Ten Hag has won a trophy in each of his seasons at Manchester United winning the EFL Cup last season and a sensational FA Cup against local rivals Manchester City this season.
