Manchester United fans can breathe a sigh of relief as the club has confirmed that Erik ten Hag will remain in his role as manager.

The decision comes after speculation about Ten Hag’s future following a challenging Premier League campaign for the Red Devils.

Despite a rocky season, United ended on a high note by clinching the FA Cup against arch-rivals Manchester City.

The club conducted an end-of-season review led by Sir Dave Brailsford of new co-owners INEOS, which ultimately led to the decision to retain Ten Hag.

Discussions are underway for a contract extension for Ten Hag, whose current contract was set to expire in 2025.

The review’s findings were discussed constructively, paving the way for Ten Hag to continue leading the team.

The 54-year-old Dutch manager had a successful debut season, securing a third-place finish in the Premier League and winning the Carabao Cup.

However, the second season was marred by struggles in the league and European competitions.

United finished eighth in the league, their lowest ever Premier League position, and faced an early exit from the Champions League.

Amidst speculation about Ten Hag’s future, United explored potential replacements, including high-profile names like Thomas Tuchel, Mauricio Pochettino, and Gareth Southgate.

However, Ten Hag’s resilience and belief in his abilities were evident as he emphasized that injuries contributed to the team’s setbacks.

Ten Hag’s commitment to winning trophies remained unwavering, and his recent FA Cup victory added to his track record of success.

With confirmation of his continued tenure, Ten Hag is expected to return from holiday in Ibiza to kickstart preseason training in July, gearing up for United’s upcoming summer schedule, including a game against Rosenborg in Norway on July 15.
