MANCHESTER United has confirmed the appointment of Dutch manager, Erik Ten Hag, as the first team manager with effect from the ending of the 2021-2022.
The Ajax Amsterdam manager signed a 3-year deal that will see him take over from Ralf Ragnick who was appointed interim manager on a short contract after the sack of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in November.
The 52 years old tactician was given a nod by the Manchester United Board of Directors who picked him over former Tottenham Hotspur and current Paris Saint German manager, Maurio Pochettino.
Speaking on the official website of Manchester United, Ten Hag stated, "It is a great honour to be appointed manager of Manchester United and I am hugely excited by the challenge ahead. I know the history of this great club and the passion of the fans, and I am absolutely determined to develop a team capable of delivering the success they deserve.
"It will be difficult to leave Ajax after these incredible years, and I can assure our fans of my complete commitment and focus on bringing this season to a successful conclusion before I move to Manchester United".
