I don’t care about guarantees about my future from Ratcliffe – Ten Hag

 Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag has said he “doesn’t care” that new minority owner, Sir Jim Ratcliffe, has not publicly confirmed he will stay on next season.

Ten Hag has a contract at Old Trafford until 2025.

But there has been speculation about his future at United, after a poor season that saw the team sit in sixth place in the Premier League table.

Ratcliffe’s 27.7% stake in the Red Devils was confirmed last week, but the 71-year-old has stopped short of confirming Ten Hag will be the manager next season.

However, the former Ajax boss insists it’s not a problem.

When asked whether it would be beneficial for Ratcliffe to confirm he will stay on as manager, Ten Hag said: “I’m under contract for three seasons, so I don’t care.

“I am in this process, I’m only focusing on the process, so I don’t care what’s going on around me. I have many talks with Sir Jim Radcliffe, also with Sir Dave Brailsford and others in that group, so I know where we are talking about and I have a strong belief and I feel that they believe in me.”
