New Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is approaching his third Eredivisie title in a row as the new Manchester United manager prepares to take over the hot spot at Old Trafford this summer. Manchester United have been trophy-free since 2017, with new manager Erik ten Hag taking over from Old Trafford this summer. Ajax boss Erik ten Hag of Manchester United has not yet decided who will join his coaching staff at Old Trafford.
Ajax boss Erik ten Hag expects his high standards to match his high standards at Manchester United and says he will have a lot of influence over transfers, which was a condition for him being hired as manager. Another Dutch outlet on Friday quoted ten Hag as saying he still “wants to be successful again with Ajax this season, and a third consecutive league shield in the coming seasons will count like that.” Young Manchester United player Anthony Elanga says he looks forward to new manager Erik ten Hag. He has been very impressed with the Dutchman’s work at Ajax as he approaches another Eredivisie title. Ajax boss Erik ten Hag became Manchester United’s fifth permanent manager since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013.
Erik ten Hag is joining United now at perhaps the lowest level since his retirement, and his first big decision could be what to do with Cristiano Ronaldo. Former teammate Daly Blind, according to sources, stressed that Erik ten Hag had built a reputation in the Ajax dressing room for putting the team above any player alone and emphasised his decision to leave the club. Adopting the offensive philosophy of the great Johan Cruyff, Erik ten Hag managed to bring back the good times at Ajax, leading Dutch Ajax to two Eredivisie titles, which could be three in a few weeks, as well as the Champions League semi-finals in 2019.
Ten Hag will be tasked with transferring the positive energy from the Amsterdam Arena to Old Trafford. Despite a 1-1 draw against AZ Alkmaar on Sunday, Ajax are four points ahead at the top of the Eredivisie with two games remaining. PSV, who sit second in the league, could not capitalise on Ajax’s loss of points, drawing 2-2 with Feyenoord, and Ten Hag’s team now appear likely to be declared Eredivisie championships this week for the third time in his five years in command.
Mazraoui, whose contract at Ajax expires on July 1, has been courted by Bayern Munich, who can provide him Champions League football as well as the opportunity to contend for the Bundesliga crown. United are said to have presented a more attractive financial deal and a starting spot ahead of Wan-Bissaka, but it was turned down.
