Football England – Man Utd abandons Pochettino at PSG, Erik ten Hag soon to be appointed!

Manchester United leaders having decided that the interim Ralf Rangnick would not be extended, they were looking for a new coach. Several media announce that Erik ten Hag is the lucky one, and not Mauricio Pochettino.

Even though the 2021-2022 season is not over yet, the record is bad for Manchester United, with the Red Devils guaranteed to finish without a single trophy yet again. An unbearable situation for a club of the standing of the Red Devils, and which definitively sealed the future of Ralf Rangninck, who arrived in the middle of autumn to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, dismissed without consideration. The German technician not having convinced, the English club therefore quickly went in search of a replacement for next season, and several technicians in position were contacted. For a long time, Mauricio Pochettino seemed to be in pole position, especially since Paris Saint-Germain were not keen on keeping him until the end of his contract in 2023. However, the former Southampton manager and Tottenham quickly saw competition from the Netherlands and more specifically from Ajax Amsterdam in the person of Erik ten Hag. Received, like Pochettino, by the Manchester United board, the latter would have convinced the Premier League club.

Man Utd to pay Ajax €2m for Ten Hag

This Wednesday evening, ESPN announces that the Red Devils have definitively chosen Erik ten Hag and that the latter will quickly be formalized in his role as future manager of Cristiano Ronaldo and his teammates. Information confirmed by the Sun. To install the 52-year-old Dutch technician on the Old Trafford bench, Manchester United agreed to pay compensation of 2 million euros to Ajax Amsterdam. Ten Hag had indeed still one year of contract with the current leader of the championship of the Netherlands. The media even specifies that the Ajax coach is already working on the next transfer window and knows exactly what envelope he will have to strengthen his future team. A news that will obviously disappoint Mauricio Pochettino who saw himself returning next season to the Premier League, moreover in Manchester. This will not be the case.
