Man Utd to cut Ten Hag’s salary if he escapes sack


Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag, will have to take a big pay cut if he stays on at the Premier League club beyond the end of the current campaign.

ESPN reports that Ten Hag will take a substantial 25 percent pay cut at Old Trafford, following the team’s likely failure to secure qualification for the Champions League.

The Dutchman, who signed a three-year contract with the Red Devils after he joined from Ajax in May 2022, is under pressure with the team languishing in seventh place on the table.

United trail a top-four position by a massive 16 points.

The report however claims that United’s revamped football hierarchy, led by minority owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s INEOS, has been actively exploring potential alternatives to Ten Hag.

Prospective candidates include England’s Gareth Southgate, Bayern Munich’s Thomas Tuchel, Brighton’s Roberto De Zerbi, Brentford’s Thomas Frank, and Wolves’ Gary O’Neil.
