Ten Hag signs contract extension with Manchester United

How did Manchester United fare in 2023-24 Premier League season

Erik Ten Hag has signed a contract extension with Manchester United until 2026.

The Dutchman was appointed from Ajax Amsterdam in 2022, with his original deal expiring in 2025.

The 54-year-old has now extended his contract by an additional year and is looking forward to continue working on his project of rebuilding the club, having won the EFL Cup in his first season and the FA Cup in the second.

“I am very pleased to have reached agreement with the club to continue working together. 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,” Ten Hag said on the club website.

“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.”

United finished in third place in the Premier League in Ten Hag’s first season and qualified for the UEFA Champions League where they finished last in the group stage.

They finished in eighth place in the Premier League in his second season which was their lowest finish in the history of the competition.
