Erik ten Hag favourite for the Man United job

Erik ten Hag is now  favourite to become Manchester United‘s new permanent manager as the club prepares to conduct a second and final round of interviews.

The Ajax boss has been heavily linked to the Old Trafford vacancy in recent weeks and is one of two leading contenders to become the long-term successor to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The battle for the United job has been centered around Ten Hag and Paris Saint-Germain‘s Mauricio Pochettino.

Ajax did give Ten Hag permission to be interviewed by United last week and that the level of compensation required to get him out of Amsterdam  is  in the region of £4million .

Ten Hag has led Ajax to two Eredivisie and KNVB Cup doubles and his side are currently two points ahead in the title race with PSV Eindhoven with seven games to go.

Ajax also have to navigate a KNVB Cup final against PSV on April 17. 

However, it’s also reported that Ten Hag’s camp harbour concerns that United are worried he does not have the experience to overhaul the club’s fortunes.
