Incoming Man Utd boss Erik ten Hag claps the fans

Erik ten Hag has revealed that he will begin work at Man Utd today after taking charge of his final match at Ajax on Sunday.

The Red Devils announced last month that the Dutchman would take over from interim boss Ralf Rangnick at the end of the Premier League season.

There are set to be big changes at Old Trafford with at least six first-team players leaving at the end of the campaign, while another six youth team players will probably join them.

And Ten Hag is eager to start work at Old Trafford with the Dutchman confirming he will start his new job today, although Rangnick will be in charge of the club’s final Premier League match of the season against Crystal Palace.

Speaking to De Telegraaf, Ten Hag said: “We have agreed that I will be employed by Manchester United from May 16. There are still a few things that need to be done in preparation for the season.

“Among other things, with regard to the make-up of the staff and the composition of the squad.

“I will leave my mark and I have to do it very carefully.”

Ajax drew their final match of the season 2-2 with the Eredivisie already in the bag, beating PSV Eindhoven to the title by two points.

Following the draw against Vitesse, Ten Hag confirmed that he would not be joining the rest of the Ajax staff in a post-season trip to Curacao.

Ten Hag added: “It’s time to turn the switch now. It’s something that is needed because there is a lot to take care off and I have the energy for it.

“‘Tomorrow there will be a party with the (Ajax) staff, but I am not going to Curacao (a Dutch Caribbean island). I think that’s understandable. There is a lot of work to do there (United). That is the case with every club.

“A number of things still need to be organised in the staff and also in the selection. We will be working intensively on this from tomorrow.”
