“Erik Ten Hag revealed to me something that no other manager has ever disclosed to me during our conversation. That’s not even Pep Guadiola’s mentality.….” Fabrizio Roman reveals TWO secret reasons why The INEOS and Manchester United are keeping Erik ten Hag for another season.

Manchester United have decided to retain manager Erik ten Hag following a comprehensive end-of-season review completed this week.

David Ornstein confirmed the news on Tuesday evening, stating that the club is now set to enter negotiations with the Dutchman over a new contract, with his current deal set to expire in the summer of 2025.

Since joining Manchester United in 2022, Ten Hag has won two trophies and guided the team to a third-place finish in the Premier League during his debut campaign. However, the 2023/24 season proved challenging, with the team finishing eighth in the Premier League—their worst result since the league’s inception in 1992. Despite these struggles, Ten Hag ended the season on a high note by securing FA Cup glory last month.

Reports suggested that Ten Hag’s job was at risk regardless of the outcome at Wembley. However, MailOnline noted that those in charge at Old Trafford were acutely aware of the significant support for Ten Hag among fans. The Red Army, a prominent Manchester United fan group, released a statement last month urging Sir Jim Ratcliffe to keep Ten Hag in charge. The statement, posted on X (formerly known as Twitter), read: “Sir Jim, if you care about the match-going fans (and proper Utd everywhere), you’ll stand by our manager. We want him to stay, do the right thing.”

During this period, INEOS executives also evaluated their options, holding meetings with potential candidates such as Thomas Tuchel and Kieran McKenna. However, the FA Cup victory against Manchester City bolstered Ten Hag’s position and solidified his case to remain in charge in the eyes of the decision-makers.
