United hoping to seal arrival of key Dutch duo by tomorrow – The Athletic

Van Nistelrooy and Hake are set to become the latest additions to the coaching staff ahead of the upcoming 2024/25 season. They’re part of an overhaul following the club’s decision to keep Erik ten Hag in the Old Trafford dugout after an end-of-season review.

Like Ten Hag, Hake was brought up in the East of Holland and went into management at FC Twente. The pair have both also coached FC Utrecht and Go Ahead Eagles.

Hake himself recently confirmed that he’s set to join United – a move that he described as “a great reward”

Meanwhile, it’s believed that Van Nistelrooy turned down the chance to become the next Burnley manager in favour of assuming a role back at his former club.

The Athletic have now revealed when Hake and Van Nistelrooy are likely to start work at United.

“The expectation is that Ten Hag will be adding Ruud van Nistelrooy, the former United striker, to his backroom staff, along with Rene Hake, the current head coach of the Go Ahead Eagles in the Netherlands.”
