Erik ten Hag has already planned first Man Utd change ahead of potential appointment


Erik ten Hag has already planned a change at Manchester United, according to reports.

The Ajax boss is eyeing a move to Old Trafford at the end of the campaign, despite the club also having interest in Mauricio Pochettino and Carlo Ancelotti.

Ralf Rangnick, who was put in charge in December on an interim basis, isn’t in the running for the role full-time.

Manchester United are currently weighing up who to name as their permanent replacement for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who lost his job earlier in the season.

Pochettino is one option, with the Argentine on the club’s radar ever since his days at Southampton.

Ancelotti is another to have emerged as a possible candidate over the past 24 hours, with the board open to making a short-term appointment.

And Ten Hag has been strongly linked with the post, too, having done well at Ajax over the past five years – helping them re-establish themselves among Europe’s elite in the process.

Now, the Daily Mail say the 52-year-old is keen on the job.

And it’s claimed that he’s already planning a change because he’d bring coach Mitchel van der Gaag with him to England should he end up securing the position he craves.

At the moment, Chris Armas operates as Rangnick’s No 2 at Old Trafford.

The American joined the club at the same time as his German superior following the departure of Michael Carrick.

Carrick was placed in charge of United on an interim basis after Solskjaer’s sacking and did well, winning matches against Villarreal and Arsenal while drawing with Chelsea.

After it was made clear to him he wouldn’t be trusted to lead the team permanently, however, he then decided to leave.
