We have known more surprising information. As announced in the British press for weeks, Erik ten Hag will sit on the Manchester United bench from this summer. The current sixth in the Premier League indicated on Thursday that the current coach of Ajax Amsterdam has signed up until June 2025, with an additional year as an option.
The Dutchman will succeed the German interim Ralf Rangnick, in office since the dismissal of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last November. The Red Devils hope the 52-year-old technician will allow them to regain their past luster.
“Attractive and attacking football”
This is in any case what indicates John Murtough, the director of football, on the club website, where he emphasizes ten Haag’s “seductive and attacking football”, as well as his work with young players. The Dutch technician says he is “absolutely determined to build a team capable of offering the success that his fans deserve”.
At the beginning of April, the DailyMail announced that Manchester United would pay around 1.6 million pounds sterling (1.9 million euros) to buy out the last year of the contract of their coach from Ajax, in office since 2017. Leader of Eredevisie, the club amsteldamois is on track to obtain its third title of champion of the ten Haag era, which began in 2017.
