Manchester United have officially announced Erik Ten Hag as their new manager ahead of next season, MySportDab reports.
The Netherlands International will be taking over as Manchester United manager when the season comes to an end.
Ralf Rangnick is expected to step down from his position which Erik Ten Hag will take over as the new manager once the season comes to an end.
The move was one which was already being discussed in the last few weeks after a successful interview with the Premier League side.
Agreement on personal terms was agreed immediately after Manchester United assured him of total control of what happens with players going out and coming in.
He has signed a three years contract which will see him take over at the end of the season until 2025 with an option to extend for one more year.
His appointment will be completed once his work visa requirements are completed which he will then take over after the 2021-22 season comes to a conclusion.
John Murtough Of Man United Football Direct Had This To Say:
“During the past four years at Ajax, Erik has proved himself to be one of the most exciting and successful coaches in Europe, renowned for his team’s attractive, attacking football and commitment to youth.
“In our conversations with Erik leading up to this appointment, we were deeply impressed with his long-term vision for returning Manchester United to the level we want to be competing at, and his drive and determination to achieve that.
“We wish Erik the best of luck as he focuses on achieving a successful end to the season at Ajax and look forward to welcoming him to Manchester United this summer.”
