Source: Man United to keep Ten Hag after review

Erik ten Hag will stay on as Manchester United manager following an end-of-season review conducted by new co-owners INEOS and led by Sir Dave Brailsford, a source confirmed to ESPN.

The Dutch coach’s future has been in doubt following a poor campaign in the Premier League. But the season ended on a high after United won the FA Cup against rivals Manchester City.

The 54-year-old, who arrived from Ajax in 2022, has a year left on his contract but a source said he is in discussions with the club about a new deal.

Ten Hag enjoyed a successful first season in charge at Old Trafford, finishing third in the Premier League and winning the Carabao Cup, but his second season was only saved by lifting the FA Cup after a miserable season in the league and in Europe.

United ended up eighth in the table to record their lowest ever Premier League finish. They also finished bottom of their Champions League group, exiting European competition before Christmas.

Ten Hag has repeatedly insisted injuries were to blame for poor results and was defiant in the face of intense questioning about his future following the FA Cup final at Wembley.

“If they [United’s owners] don’t want me, then I go somewhere else to win trophies because that is what I do.” Ten Hag said.

Ten Hag has been on holiday since the 2-1 win over City at Wembley earned his second trophy in as many seasons.

Having finally received confirmation that he will keep his job, he is expected back at Carrington for the start of preseason training in July.

United begin their summer schedule with a game against Rosenborg in Norway on July 15.
