EPL: Man Utd begged me to stay — Ten Hag

Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag, has revealed how the Premier League club flew him to Ibiza to convince him to stay.

Ten Hag’s future was uncertain before he led the Red Devils to victory in the FA Cup final.

United have now decided to continue with the former Ajax boss.

“The club management came to me while I was on holiday in Ibiza,” Ten Hag said on Dutch TV channel NOS.

“They suddenly showed up on my doorstep and told me they wanted to continue with me.”

Ten Hag also revealed that new United co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe spoke to former Bayern Munich and Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, about the job.

“Manchester United have told me that they spoke with Tuchel, but they eventually came to the conclusion that they already have the best manager,” he added.

“INEOS took their time. They are new in football, it’s normal to reflect on the season. It’s no secret that they talked with multiple candidates.”
