Manchester United have confirmed the appointment of Erik ten Hag as the new first team manager.

Ten Hag will replace interim boss, Ralf Ragnick, at the Threatre of Dreams at the end of the season.

The Dutchman who is currently an Ajax has signed a three-year contract with the Red Devils and he's expected to begin the new era with an overhaul of the first team expected at the end of their shambolic 2021/22 Premier League season.

A statement on the club's official website revealed that ten Hag's contract is "subject to work visa requirements, from the end of this season until June 2025, with the option to extend for a further year."

John Murtough, Football Director, said: “During the past four years at Ajax, Erik has proved himself to be one of the most exciting and successful coaches in Europe, renowned for his team’s attractive, attacking football and commitment to youth.

“In our conversations with Erik leading up to this appointment, we were deeply impressed with his long-term vision for returning Manchester United to the level we want to be competing at, and his drive and determination to achieve that.

“We wish Erik the best of luck as he focuses on achieving a successful end to the season at Ajax and look forward to welcoming him to Manchester United this summer.”

Erik ten Hag said: “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.”
