Erik ten Hag is set to remain as coach of Manchester United following a performance review of the Dutchman carried out by the Premier League club, British media said Wednesday (AEST).

Rumours swirled regarding the future of Ten Hag after a poor second season in the hot seat at Old Trafford, with a lowly eighth placed finish in the league and group stage Champions League exit.

But the 54-year-old coach did oversee an impressive 2-1 FA Cup final win against local rivals Manchester City in May to boost his chances of keeping his job.

Britain’s Press Association reported United have decided that Ten Hag will remain as coach after spending a fortnight reviewing the 2023-24 campaign and overall first-team operation.

With the former Ajax boss’ contract set to expire in Manchester next summer, negotiations over a contract extension have reportedly begun between the two parties.

Prior to the season-ending FA Cup final, reports suggested Ten Hag would be sacked regardless of the outcome of the match.

There was no shortage of candidates linked to the vacancy, with the likes of Thomas Tuchel, Mauricio Pochettino, Roberto De Zerbi, Kieran McKenna and even England boss Gareth Southgate rumoured to replace the Dutchman.

However, Ten Hag’s record of two trophies in two seasons was pivotal in providing United’s key decision makers proof he is the man to deliver more silverware for the club.

The news comes after Ten Hag oversaw an historically dismal season at Old Trafford.

United recorded its lowest-ever finish in the Premier League era (8th) and ended the season with a goal differential of -1, marking the first time it was a negative figure in 34 years.

The Red Devils also crashed out of the Champions League group stage after finishing last in the group and bowed out in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup.
