Man United’s Erik ten Hag signs two-year contract extension

Erik ten Hag has signed a new contract with Manchester United, the club have confirmed.

The Dutchman has agreed a deal until 2026 to remain as “first team manager.”

Sources have told ESPN that discussions about refreshing Ten Hag’s backroom staff are continuing with Ruud van Nistelrooy and Rene Hake set to arrive at Old Trafford.

“I am very pleased to have reached an 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.”
