Man Utd Appoint Erik ten Hag: Dutchman 7/1 to win Premier League title

Foden_1

Manchester United have confirmed the appointment of Erik ten Hag from next season on a three-year deal with the option to extend for a further year.

Ten Hag, who will see out the current campaign with title-chasing Ajax, will replace interim boss Ralf Rangnick who has been overseeing the first team since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s departure back in November.

"It is a great honour to be appointed manager of Manchester United and I am hugely excited by the challenge ahead,” Ten Hag said after the news became official on Thursday morning.

"I know the history of this great club and the passion of the fans, and I am absolutely determined to develop a team capable of delivering the success they deserve."

Premier League Odds

Can Erik ten Hag win the Premier League title?

Erik ten Hag has a colossal rebuilding job on his hands at Man Utd who could well finish as low as 8th this season. He’ll have some huge decisions to make this summer as he bids to swat away the deadwood and bring in fresh faces to fit his preferred system.

While none but perhaps the most optimistic of Red Devils fans will be predicting that United can immediately challenge for the Premier League title in Ten Hag’s first season - 18/1 (Betfair) for those interested - he has been priced at 7/1 (Ladbrokes) to win the league at some point during his United tenure.

Ten Hag has signed a three-year deal - with an option for a fourth - and while he’s unlikely to work his magic straight away, United could enter the title conversation further down the line. Similarly to Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool whom he completely transformed before leading to the title in his fourth full season; and could well add another next month.

What could happen in Erik ten Hag's first season?

Erik ten Hag's Man Utd can be backed at 15/8 (Betfair) to win one major trophy in his maiden season at Old Trafford (2022/23). This includes the Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, Champions League and Europa League.

United are odds-on at 17/20 to finish in the top-four next term, 18/1 to win the Premier League, 15/2 to lift the FA Cup, 7/1 to triumph in the League Cup, and 9/1 to go all the way in the Europa League (all Betfair).

For those that really fancy Ten Hag's chances next season you can back him at 300/1 to win three major trophies and 33/1 to win two major trophies.

Elsewhere, William Hill have Man Utd priced at 4/1 to finish above Liverpool, 11/1 to be top at Christmas, 6/4 to miss out on the top-4, and 500/1 to be relegated!

Furthermore, Hills are offering 18/1 for United to beat Liverpool home-and-away, and 25/1 to defeat Man City on both league clashes.

Could we see a repeat of David Moyes in 2013/14?

It seems a little harsh to be talking about when Ten Hag could leave considering he’s not even managed a match yet, but Ladbrokes are already offering odds of 9/2 that the Dutchman fails to see out the 2022/23 season.

This has only ever happened to one permanent Man Utd manager in the Premier League era, David Moyes, who was sacked in April of the 2013/14 campaign.

Things would have to go staggeringly wrong for Ten Hag to suffer the sack next season, and they would have to go really, really, really wrong for the 25/1 (William Hill) for him not to make it through to Christmas.

Who could Erik ten Hag sign this summer?

There will already be an excited chatter among Man Utd fans as to who the club could sign this summer.

A centre-back could be high up on the agenda, with Ten Hag's former Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt priced at 10/1 (Betfair) to be signed from Juventus before September 3rd.

Another one of his former players, Barcelona's Frenkie De Jong, is 3/1 to sign, while current Ajax star Antony is available at just 6/4.

Selected others include Harry Kane (13/2) and Declan Rice (4/1) both with Betfair, while Darwin Nunez and Antonio Rudiger can be found at 2/1 and 4/1 respectively with Sky Bet.

Who could be the next Ajax manager?

Ten Hag's decision to swap Ajax for Man Utd this summer means that an attractive vacancy will open at the Dutch giants.

There are no next manager odds available just yet - they will appear here - but we've put forward four managers who we think could get the job plus a splattering of other names, which you can read in the article below...
