Manchester United have confirmed the arrival of Erik ten Hag as their new manager from next season.
Mauricio Pochettino and Ten Hag are the frontrunners to replace interim manager Ralf Rangnick as Manchester United manager next season. However, Manchester United have confirmed that ten Hag will be the next head coach.
Erik ten Hag has done exceptionally well as Ajax manager, winning two Eredivisie titles and reaching the Champions League semi-finals.
Erik ten Hag said on club’s official website: “It is a great honour to be appointed manager of Manchester United and I am hugely excited by the challenge ahead. I know the history of this great club and the passion of the fans, and I am absolutely determined to develop a team capable of delivering the success they deserve.
“It will be difficult to leave Ajax after these incredible years, and I can assure our fans of my complete commitment and focus on bringing this season to a successful conclusion before I move to Manchester United.”
