The 54-year-old has won the League Cup and FA Cup across his first two seasons at Old Trafford, though his position came under threat after a disappointing eighth-place finish in the Premier League in 2023-24.

Despite the club’s lowest league finish in 34 years, discussions between Ten Hag and the club’s new hierarchy have ended with agreement on the future direction.

Ten Hag praised the unity between his vision and the board as a new-look board look to bring success to the club.

“I am very pleased to have reached agreement with the club to continue working together. Looking back at the past two years, we can reflect with pride on two trophies and many examples of progression from where we were when I joined,” he told the club’s official website.

“However, we must also be clear that there is still lots of hard work ahead to reach the levels expected of Manchester United, which means challenging for English and European titles.

“In my discussions with the club, we have found complete unity in our vision for reaching those goals, and we are all strongly committed to making that journey together.”

Manchester United’s new sporting director, Dan Ashworth, said the board were ‘clear’ in their belief that Ten Hag is the right man to lead the side.

“With two trophies in the past two seasons, Erik has reinforced his record as one of the most consistently successful coaches in European football.

“While the club’s review of last season highlighted areas for improvement, it also reached a clear conclusion that Erik was the best partner for us to work with in driving up standards and outcomes.

“This group of players and staff have already shown they are capable of competing and winning at the top level; now we need to do it more consistently.

“With our strengthened football leadership team now in place, we are looking forward to working hand-in-hand with Erik to achieve our shared ambitions for this football club.
