Rene Hake’s important Erik ten Hag message as Man Utd contract clause explained



| Last Updated:


Rene Hake will be joining Manchester United this summer to become an important part of Erik ten Hag’s coaching team.

Hake, 52, will become one of two new assistant coaches at United, with club legend Ruud van Nistelrooy also making a surprise return.

The experienced manager has had a close relationship with Ten Hag over the years after working together at FC Twente.

Coming into Old Trafford, the new coaches are expected to have a positive influence on the tactical and behind-the-scenes approach.

Hake has already explained how his connection with Ten Hag works and why it can help create new plans and ideas.

“We think the same about many things in life and in football,'” Hake told Voetbal International in 2021, as per MailOnline.

“At Twente, we worked together intensively, and we infected each other, in the good sense of the word. As a result, you also drive each other to new insights and plans. This creates a kind of shared vision. 

“We both love the game, and perhaps our working method is partly the same. We are both not averse to hard work.”

Meanwhile, Ten Hag is expected to sign a new contract in the coming weeks ahead of pre-season, and there has been much talk about potential adjustments to that deal.

The Dutchman’s influence in transfers and recruitment has been extremely high since he joined in 2022, but he is still expected to keep his veto for all transfers in his new terms.

The Athletic has reported that Ten Hag and the wider recruitment department each have a veto over potential signings, and it is something that remains in his new contract.
