Erik Ten Hag was even unsure of keeping his job after beating Manchester City 2-1 in the FA Cup finals. After a disastrous campaign, the Red Devils surprisingly shocked Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City at Wembley to clinch the FA Cup with an impressive performance on that afternoon.

Tactically, Erik Ten Hag was praised for being able to deal with the imperial Manchester City.

Manchester United’s board decided to review every aspect of the just-ended season and has concluded that the former Ajax manager must continue. Ten Hag has just one year left on his current 3-year deal and they are even planning to offer him two years extension.

Even though Manchester United finished 8th in the EPL, suffered 14 defeats, conceded 58 goals in the league, finished bottom of their UEFA Champions League group and played abysmally, most of the fans wanted him to stay and their wish has been granted.

WHY TEN HAG STAY AS MAN UTD MANAGER?

The emergence of youngsters Alejandro Garnacho and Kobbie Mainoo was considered immensely by Manchester United as they believe he will get the team more talented players from the academy when backed well.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe who is a 28% shareholder of the club and tasked with football issues was swayed by the FA Cup Final win over Manchester City.

Reports also suggest the club is impressed by the Dutchman’s dignity, dedication and professionalism shown towards the club even in difficult circumstances.

The Red Devils missed the core of the team throughout the season making them feel empathy for him due to the injury problems.

Erik Ten Hag has won two trophies in his first two seasons and Manchester United expect him to win more trophies in the coming years.

He is tasked to improve performance and secure a UEFA Champions League slot for the club in the upcoming 2024-25 season.
