Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag wants to start his job at Old Trafford immediately after the final game with Ajax Amsterdam.
There is a tradition at de Godenzonen that the players and the coaching staff go on an end of season camp following the conclusion of every season. But, the Dutchman has confirmed that he will not be taking part in this year’s camp and instead will intensify his work at the Old Trafford stadium.
Speaking on Voetbal international, after the game against Vitesse, Erik ten Hag stated that he will not be joining Ajax’s group to Curaçao for the party and instead will start his job at Manchester United. Meanwhile, he also indicated that he has plans to go on vacation and said he understands the necessity of a holiday after a long season. Ten Hag said:
“Tomorrow there will be a party with the staff, but I am not going to Curaçao. I think that’s understandable. There is a lot of work to do there. That is the case with every club. A number of things still need to be organized in the staff and also in the selection. We will be working intensively on this from tomorrow.
“Time management is also important. It was also a tough season. Charging the battery is necessary.”
Erik Ten Hag has realised the current situation of Manchester United and he does not want to waste any time before taking over the managerial role. The Dutchman is showing his work ethic by starting his job at Old Trafford right after the final game with the Eredivisie giants.
Meanwhile, some reports are claiming that the Dutchman will be watching next week’s game against Crystal Palace and might well be in attendance at Selhurst Park.
The 52-year-old has already held a meeting with Manchester United. And they have reportedly discussed transfer plans and the backroom staff. Meanwhile, the Dutchman has expressed his desire to let those players leave the club who are not committed to playing for the club.
Having failed to secure a place in the Champions League, Europa League qualification is the second-best outcome for Manchester United next season. They are currently sixth in the table with 58 points in 37 games, a win against Patrick Vieira’s side in the final game week will secure their place in the Europa League.
