Will United sign Ten Hag?

Manchester United legend Gary Neville has given his thoughts on the decision to keep Erik ten Hag as manager

Ten Hag’s position came under massive scrutiny during Manchester United’s dismal Premier League 2023-24 campaign, as The Red Devils slumped to their lowest-ever Premier League finish.

The Dutchman managed to stun Manchester City in that FA Cup final – but that did not stop the Manchester United board from speaking to possible candidates about taking over from Ten Hag at some point this summer window.

However – the decision was made to keep hold of the Dutchman and now Neville has said the stability Ten Hag offered was a positive amid so much other change around Old Trafford, he told Sky Sports: “It’s one of those that’s not perfect, waiting two and a half weeks after the end of the season, and quite obviously flirting with other managers in the mean time.

“But I believe because he had such a disappointing season in the league, the club were well within their rights to be able to see what was out there in the market.

“But as we all know, the manager market has been quite difficult for a number of top clubs in Europe, and I’m happy they’re maintained that stability into next season.

“I think they’ve come to the right conclusion, but they were within their rights to look at other options. The fact Ten Hag knows they looked at other options is not ideal, but he’s got to accept when you finished where they did, there is a chance you could lose your job – so he should be happy, the club should be happy.

“The big thing for me is looking at Man Utd changing owners, sporting director, CEO, technical director and CFO, the five or six major positions, to have some stability in the football side is a sensible thing.

“It allows those people not in the club yet to build the foundations underneath the football side. Having to settle in a new manager in at the same time would’ve been more difficult. Any new manager would’ve said they wanted to look at the playing staff, they’d want new players, a transfer budget which Man Utd don’t quite have at the moment because of PSR.

“It’s a sensible thing for the club, and the right thing for Erik ten Hag.”
