Erik ten Hag has revealed when he decided to leave Ajax for Manchester United

The 52-year-old signed a three year deal with Manchester United to take over from interim boss Ralf Rangnick with the Red Devils having the option to extend for another year

Quizzed by Voetbal International as to when he took the decision to swap Amsterdam for Manchester, Ten Hag said

“That was not so long ago. Actually only after the talks with Man Utd, which only started in the last international break, at the end of March.

“Those conversations were so good that I got the feeling: I want to take on that challenge

“Then it started to come to life in my head and I made the decision that I would leave Ajax.”

Several names including Paris Saint-Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino were on the shortlist before the Red Devils opted for Ten Hag.

Ten Hag added on the lengthy process: “I do know that Manchester United have gone through a very careful procedure

“They also really knew a lot about me. They had done scouting, made analyses, gathered data

“And had interviews with people who had worked with me. Several rounds of discussions followed from there. So they didn’t decide overnight. Neither did I.”
