[골닷컴] Reporter Dong-Hoon Kang = Manager Eric Ten Haach (52, The Netherlands) will take over the helm of Manchester United, a prestigious club in the Premier League, starting next season. An agreement has already been reached by signing the contract, and the penalty issue is expected to be resolved within this week.
The British media ‘The Guardian’ reported on the 19th (Korean time), “Man United will appoint Ten Haach as their new manager within a few days. The contract period is expected to be three to four years.” Manchester United will discuss with Ajax a €2 million release clause.”
At the same time, reporter Fabrizio Romano, an expert on the European soccer transfer market, also said through his social network service (SNS), “Ten Haach is going to Manchester United. The contract agreement is complete.” He said, “Hear We Go!” The news was delivered with text.
From the beginning of this year, Manchester United have found a suitable person to take over as manager Ralph Langnick (63, Germany), who will step down at the end of this season. Several candidates were mentioned, from manager Ten Haach to Mauricio Pochettino (50, Argentina), Brendan Rogers (49, Northern Ireland), Julen Lopetegui (55, Spain), and Luis Enrique (51, Spain).
But recently, it has turned into a two-way battle between manager Ten Haach and manager Pochettino. In the process, while concerns were deepened, such as conflicts of opinion within the club, Manchester United sharply leaned toward appointing Ten Haach as manager based on the interview results at the end of last month. And finally, after entering into negotiations, it was decided to entrust the supervisory position.
The British public broadcaster ‘BBC’ also reported earlier this month, “After Manchester United held a meeting, it was finally decided to appoint Ten Haach to the new manager’s post.
Ten Haach has led Ajax (Netherlands) since 2017 after playing for the late Ahead Eagles (Netherlands), Bayern Munich 2nd team (Germany) and Utrecht (Netherlands) in 2012. Influenced by ‘Cruyffism’, he prefers build-up football that is solved based on short passes, and he has tactical flexibility and has excellent ability to cope with situations. After joining Ajax, he led the 2018-19 season and the 2020-21 season double (Eredi Visi and KNVB Cup).
