Manchester United confirm three reasons why INEOS are keeping Erik ten Hag



| Last Updated:


Manchester United will keep Erik ten Hag at the helm following the club’s end-of-season review based on the Dutchman’s performances as manager.

David Ornstein confirmed on Tuesday evening that Ten Hag would remain with Manchester United.

The Athletic reporter also mentioned that United are preparing to negotiate a new contract with the Dutch manager, whose current deal expires in the summer of 2025.

Information from The Telegraph claims that the club are planning to hand the 54-year-old a two-year contract extension.

Since joining Old Trafford in 2022, Ten Hag has secured two trophies and led the team to a third-place finish in the Premier League during his debut season.

However, the team struggled in the 2023/24 campaign, finishing eighth in the Premier League—their worst result since the league’s inception in 1992.

Despite the challenges, Ten Hag ended the season on a high note with an FA Cup victory last month following rumours that his job was at risk regardless of the Wembley outcome.

ESPN have confirmed that United sources say the decision to keep Erik ten Hag is based on various factors, such as his record of two trophies in two years.

Promoting youth players such as Alejandro Garnacho and Kobbie Mainoo, who both scored in the FA Cup final, was highlighted as another factor that INEOS considered during their assessment.

It was also claimed the understanding that injuries played a big part in the poor results last season was an important factor in the final decision from the Old Trafford bosses.
