Manchester United to Await New CEO’s Arrival Before Deciding Erik ten Hag’s Future

Incoming Chief Executive Omar Berrada to Determine Manager’s Fate Amidst Transition

According to reports from the Manchester Evening News, Manchester United will defer the decision on Erik ten Hag’s future at the club until the arrival of incoming chief executive Omar Berrada. Berrada, who previously served as City’s chief football operating officer, made the switch to United in January.

Scheduled to assume the role in the summer, Berrada will play a pivotal role in shaping the club’s direction, including the decision regarding Ten Hag. The MEN reveals that co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe has opted to leave the fate of Ten Hag in the hands of Berrada, who is currently on gardening leave at Manchester City.

While Sir Dave Brailsford, the Ineos sporting director, has been actively involved in United’s affairs and attends most matches, he will not have the final say on Ten Hag’s position. Despite conducting an audit on the club and serving on the football board, Brailsford’s influence does not extend to managerial matters.

United aims to maintain a stable structure during any potential managerial transition, although the anticipated arrival of Dan Ashworth from Newcastle United is not imminent. John Murtough continues to hold the position of football director, although Ratcliffe downplayed his role in recent discussions with journalists.

As for Erik ten Hag, the expectation is that he will remain in charge until the end of the season. This decision follows a series of positive results for United, including a spirited FA Cup quarter-final victory over Liverpool at Old Trafford on March 17, which marked the culmination of an uplifting period for the team.
