Manchester United confirmed on Thursday that Erik ten Hag would leave Ajax at the end of the season to take over at Old Trafford on a three-year contract, with an option to extend for a further year.
It is reported that the Dutchman feels United had underperformed this season, and required a vast change to rebuild.
The 52 year-old started his football career as a centre-back for Dutch football club Twente in 1989.
He started managing teams in 2012, including Bayern Munich II. He was praised for revitalizing Ajax, leading the team to semi-finals of the 2018-9 UEFA Champions League for the first time since 1997.
Under his supervision, Ajax defeated Juventus and holding champions Real Madrid.
In January 2022 ten Hag was named the fastest manager in league history to reach 100 wins with Ajax, achieving the feat in 128 matches.
