Man Utd Activates One-Year Extension for Ten Hag’s Contract

Written by on 04/07/2024

Manchester United have extended Erik ten Hag’s contract by one year, keeping him at the club until 2026. Ten Hag’s initial contract, signed upon his appointment in 2022, was set to expire in 2025. Under his leadership, the Dutchman has secured two trophies in two years at Old Trafford. He expressed satisfaction with the extension and pride in the progress and achievements since his arrival, but acknowledged the need for continued hard work.

Ten Hag’s tenure saw a strong start, with United finishing third in the Premier League and winning the Carabao Cup against Newcastle, ending a six-year trophy drought. However, his second season was more challenging, with the team finishing eighth in the Premier League and exiting the Champions League at the group stage. A crucial 2-1 FA Cup final victory against Manchester City in May helped secure his position.

Following the FA Cup victory, co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe led a review of the team’s performance, during which potential replacements for Ten Hag were considered. Ultimately, it was decided that Ten Hag deserved to continue in his role, working under a new and improved structure to build on his initial successes and navigate the challenges ahead.
