Who is Manchester United New Coach?
Erik Ten Hag is the new United Coach.
Erik ten Hag has signed a four-year contract to take over as Manchester United manager next season.
The 52-year-old will succeed interim manager Ralf Rangnick, who was appointed in November 2021 to replace Ole Gunnar Solksjaer.
Erik ten Hag or Ralf Rangnick?
Erik ten Hag has been named as Manchester United’s new permanent manager.
The Dutchman will quit Ajax in the summer to take over at Old Trafford, with current interim United manager Ralf Rangnick stepping down and heading into a consultancy job as planned.
He has agreed to a deal that will last until June 2025, with the option of a one-year extension.
Ten Hag, 52, has led Ajax to two Eredivisie titles and two Dutch Cups since taking over in 2017.
With five games left in the 2021/22 season, he is on the verge of earning his third league title, with Ajax four points ahead at the top of the table.
Rangnick has been in control of the club in an interim capacity since November when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was fired.
Solskjaer was the manager of the Red Devils for over three years, but he was unable to win a trophy at the club where he was a legend during his playing days.
Despite additions like Cristiano Ronaldo, England’s Jadon Sancho, and World Cup winner Raphael Varane, he was unable to make an impact at the club.
Rangnick, a German coach, was brought in to try to keep the ship afloat until the end of the current season, before going into a two-year consulting position.
However, Manchester United’s form has deteriorated, and the club is currently sixth in the Premier League table, facing a tough fight to finish in the top four.
After months of negotiations, Ten Hag has been named as Solskjaer’s long-term replacement, beating out former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino.
