Ten Hag’s coaching staff will be finalized in the near future as well.United have been undertaking extensive study on their new manager since the beginning of March, and it appears that they have finally reached a decision on who will be in charge.
In the current Eredivisie season, Ten Hag’s Ajax side is in first place and is poised to play in the KNVB Cup final on Sunday.
