Erik ten Hag left in limbo over Man Utd axe as contract clauses emerge

Erik ten Hag will receive extra money from Manchester United if they fire him after winning the FA Cup.

Ten Hag’s future will be decided by United during a season evaluation that is still ongoing, almost two weeks after their unexpected victory over local rivals Manchester City at Wembley. United almost lost out on winning a spot in Europe last season, finishing eighth in the Premier League—their lowest placing in 34 years.

Ten Hag’s £9 million salary would have been reduced by 25% as a result of his inability to qualify for Europe, from £2.25 million to £6.75 million. However, Ten Hag’s income was not reduced by a quarter as per the provisions of his contract because of United’s thrilling 2-1 victory over City, which secured them a spot in the Europe League for the following season.

Like all of United’s players, Ten Hag has a highly incentive-based contract, which means his pay changes based on whether he leads the team to the Champions League, Europa League, Europa Conference League, or no European competition at all.

After all, United has guaranteed a spot in the Europa League, therefore any payment they make to Ten Hag should he be fired will be more in line with his annual wage of £9 million than it would have been had they fallen short against Pep Guardiola’s team. According to United sources, Sir Jim Ratcliffe and his football operations team are still in the midst of their season review, and there is no set date for when it will be finished.

Ten Hag, who has two years left on his three-year contract, won the FA Cup last season. This is his second trophy as United’s manager in as many years, having won the League Cup the season before, which ended the team’s six-year trophy drought. The 54-year-old Dutchman is still on vacation and hasn’t been told what will happen to him. His second season at United was marred by a string of injuries to important players throughout the campaign.

United return for pre-season training in a month’s time, with their first pre-season game against Norwegian side Rosenborg in Trondheim on July 15. Those linked with the United job should Ten Hag be sacked include England boss Gareth Southgate, Thomas Tuchel and Mauricio Pochettino, both of whom are free agents after leaving Bayern Munichand Chelsea respectively.
