Erik ten Hag will continue as the manager of Manchester United until at least the conclusion of the season, with his performance earning approval from Sir Jim Ratcliffe.

On Sunday, Ten Hag faced intense pressure as United’s 4-3 victory over Liverpool in the FA Cup quarter-final was their only remaining opportunity for winning a trophy this season.

Winning guarantees that the campaign will continue until the weekend of the semi-final for the Cup, at the very least. The Premier League ends a month later and if United defeats Coventry at Wembley, they could potentially make it to their second consecutive Cup final. Ratcliffe, who is in charge of the club’s football operations, and his top assistant, Sir Dave Brailsford, believe that Ten Hag should be given until the end of the season before making any long-term decisions about his future.

Ten Hag is currently participating in talks about the team and strategizing for the upcoming transfer season as requested by Ratcliffe and Brailsford in order to give him the most say in the matter.

Although Ten Hag will still have a year remaining on his contract during the offseason, Ratcliffe is aware that it may be difficult to find a replacement if he decides to make a change.

The Guardian reports that although Gareth Southgate is highly regarded by Ratcliffe and Brailsford, he is just one of several individuals in the sports world who hold this distinction.
