Although admitting to having some painful recollections, Erik ten Hag is being given consideration for a new contract. The Premier League match between Manchester United and Nottingham Forest that was originally set for April has been postponed as a result of their success in the Europa League quarterfinals.
Manchester United will take on Fulham at Old Trafford on Sunday in an effort to move to the FA Cup semifinals.
The Red Devils will aim to carry on their great cup achievements after their victory over Real Betis on Thursday, which earned them a spot in the Europa League quarterfinals.
It will be difficult for United to defeat Fulham, who have had a solid season and are now ranked ninth in the Premier League. But, under Erik ten Hag’s guidance, United’s mindset has changed, and they now think they can beat any challenger as they go for three major titles this season. With its victory over Newcastle in the Carabao Cup final last month, United had already won one trophy.
Manchester United’s Premier League match against Nottingham Forest has been moved from Saturday, April 15 to Sunday, April 16 because of their participation in the Europa League.
The first leg of Erik ten Hag’s club’s quarterfinal matchup against Sevilla is slated for Thursday, April 13. A week later, the team will travel to play at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium.
Hence, their match against Forest, which was scheduled to take place between the two Europa League games, will instead take place on Sunday.
Regardless of who owns Manchester United, Erik ten Hag will probably sign a new deal there. Because of the huge influence he has had in his first year at Old Trafford, the team is already thinking about extending his current three-year contract, which he signed last summer. The Glazer family, who have owned United since May 2005, are negotiating to sell the team for an estimated £6 billion.
The richest man in Britain, Sir Jim Ratcliffe, and individuals connected to Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani of Qatar are said to have expressed interest in buying Manchester United and held negotiations there last week.
The Glazer family has asserted that, notwithstanding the ongoing sales process, everything are continuing as usual. Erik ten Hag has been informed that United intends to reward him for the advancements he has made during his brief stay at the club. The Nine Two Foundation, speaking on behalf of Sheikh Jassim, and Ratcliffe’s firm, Ineos Group, both concur that Ten Hag is the best manager to guide the club to victory.
