Erik ten Hag has confirmed that he will not go on holiday after winning the Eredivisie title with Ajax as there is a lot of work to do before he properly takes over at Man United.
Speaking after his final game in charge of Ajax, he said: “t’s time to turn the switch now. It’s something that is needed because there is a lot to take care off and I have the energy for it.
“Tomorrow there will be a party with the [Ajax] staff, but I am not going to Curaçao [a Dutch Caribbean island]. I think that’s understandable. There is a lot of work to do there [at United]. That is the case with every club.
“A number of things still need to be organized in the staff and also in the selection [at United]. We will be working intensively on this from tomorrow.”
Dutch outlet De Telegraaf has confirmed that the Dutchman will travel to Manchester and start his work with the Red Devils on Monday, 16 May. It looks like Ten Hag is eager to get things started before the Premier League season ends.
The Dutchman could be in the standards at Selhurst Park for the Red Devils’ final game of the season against Crystal Palace on Sunday.
