Thoughts on Manchester United retaining manager Erik Ten Hag for at least another two years following their recent FA Cup triumph

by Sports Benches

So there you have it with Manchester United finished off their 2023-24 season a high with an FA Cup win over Manchester City despite being 8th in the Premier League & Erik Ten Hag is staying on after all at least for another two years. With a change of minor ownership at the start of the year when Sir Richard Ratcliffe and INEOS was onboard whilst the Glazer family still held majority control, there were rumours about the manager/head coach being fired – even if he did bring home the FA Cup trophy having won the League Cup on top of their good 3rd PL campaign during his first season back in 2022/23. 

But his good track record of promoting youngsters from the academy including his ability to win silverware were the key reasons for the manager to stay at least a bit longer if he can help Man Utd compete Top 4 next season or else a Europa League winning campaign would do it to back up his two year contract extension today. Plus, the team’s training ground would get a much-needed change that is gonna cost at least £50 million in order to keep up to date with the other big clubs.

Looking to win back the Premier League is something everyone dreams of since Sir Alex Ferguson left on a high at the end of the 2012-13 season and looking at Man Utd’s position right now it’s still a long way to go. However, they are getting there depending on how good the manager will be to challenge up front like Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal soon enough. If not, they can always go to another manager maybe someone young for the long haul. 

Other than that, there’s lots of big changes other than keeping the manager with the possibility of either renovating Old Trafford or building a “Wembley of the North” Stadium elsewhere. I guess we will see a similar Camp Nou (Barcelona) v Bernabaeu (Real Madrid) battle for the best Football stadium across England if the plans do go ahead at some point.
