Man Utd confirm Erik ten Hag contract extension

Manchester United have confirmed manager Erik ten Hag has signed a new contract extension until 2026.

The Dutchman’s future at Old Trafford was in doubt after a miserable Premier League campaign which saw the Red Devils finish eighth. However, United salvaged their year with victory in the FA Cup and a post-season review from Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Ineos saw the new co-owners give Ten Hag their backing.

“I am very pleased to have reached agreement with the club to continue working together,” Ten Hag said. “Looking back at the past two years, we can reflect with pride on two trophies and many examples of progression from where we were when I joined.

“However, we must also be clear that there is still lots of hard work ahead to reach the levels expected of Manchester United, which means challenging for English and European titles.

“In my discussions with the club, we have found complete unity in our vision for reaching those goals, and we are all strongly committed to making that journey together.”

Ten Hag‘s previous deal with United was due to expire in 2025 with the option for another year.

United sporting director Dan Ashworth added: “With two trophies in the past two seasons, Erik has reinforced his record as one of the most consistently successful coaches in European football.

“While the club’s review of last season highlighted areas for improvement, it also reached a clear conclusion that Erik was the best partner for us to work with in driving up standards and outcomes.

“This group of players and staff have already shown they are capable of competing and winning at the top level; now we need to do it more consistently.

“With our strengthened football leadership team now in place, we are looking forward to working hand-in-hand with Erik to achieve our shared ambitions for this football club.”
