Erik ten Hag Getting Ready For Man United Job; Drops Big Hint

Manchester United have made the Ajax boss, Erik ten Hag their preferred candidate to become their new manager, and he has already dropped a big hint over his future.

Erik ten Hag is the new favourite to become Manchester United’s new manager – and the Ajax boss has already indicated he wants to work abroad.

The Manchester Evening News understands Ten Hag is now United’s preferred candidate to take over at Old Trafford this summer.

The Dutchman has been in competition with Mauricio Pochettino as the two frontrunners for the job since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s sacking back in November.

As things stand, United have not made a final decision as they continue with their process. The club though still intend on making their appointment before the end of the season ahead of what will be a pivotal summer.

With Ralf Rangnick set to move into a consultancy position and a raft of players looking set to leave the club, United’s new manager will face a huge task after what has been a dismal season for the club. The club though look to have identified their preferred man for the job.

Ten Hag has been coy about his future over the past few months. When the first suggestions of the United job arose, the 52-year-old firmly pushed the questions back.

His biggest hint that he is ready for a new challenge though came back in December. With United rumours building, Ten Hag indicated that he might be open to taking the job.

“I think I’m ready for it [coaching abroad]. I would be happy to take up that challenge,” Ten Hag said to de Volkskrant in December. “But I’m not chasing it. If it turns out that that step will never come, I will not say that my coaching career has failed. But I think I have sufficient competencies to take on that challenge.”

Real Madrid Stun Manchester City With Historic Comeback

Real Madrid Stun Manchester City With Historic Comeback

Manchester City suffered one of the most remarkable Champions League collapses as Real Madrid came back from the abyss to set up a final showdown with Liverpool.

City were two goals ahead on aggregate going into the 90th minute after Riyad Mahrez’s strike had added to their 4-3 first-leg win last week.

And then Rodrygo happened.

The Brazilian substitute turned home Karim Benzema’s left-wing ball from close range in the final minute – with Real’s very first shot on target.

And 90 seconds later he levelled the tie with a header into the top corner after Marco Asensio flicked on Dani Carvajal’s cross.

That sent an already rowdy Bernabeu into absolute euphoria.

City, who thought they were going through to a second consecutive all-English Champions League final, were shell-shocked.

Both sides had chances to win the tie before the full-time whistle. Ederson denied Rodrygo a quick-fire hat-trick and then an unmarked Phil Foden fired over inside the box.

And so to extra time the game went – and it was Real who got the decisive goal in maybe the greatest Champions League semi-final ever.

Benzema beat Ruben Dias to a loose ball in the box and was brought down by the City defender. He stepped up to take the penalty himself and scored his 43rd goal of the season. There is no doubt it is the most important.

Real’s Thibaut Courtois, who was by far the busier keeper, tipped away Foden’s header with Fernandinho inches away from scoring the rebound – but City could not find a goal to send it to penalties.

That sets up a repeat of the most memorable Champions League final of recent years, when Real beat Liverpool 3-1 in 2018.

For City and manager Pep Guardiola now, the Premier League title – they sit one point above Liverpool with four games to go – is their only target.
