How much Ten Hag will earn

The Mail report Ten Hag will earn £9 million per year at Manchester United.

This will make him the fifth highest earning Premier League manager, behind Pep Guardiola (£19m), Jurgen Klopp (£16m), Antonio Conte (£15m) and Brendan Rodgers (£10m).

Ten Hag’s salary will become the highest paid Dutch manager in Premier League history.

The Mail report former Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer earned £7.5 million per year.

This was nothing compared to predecessor Jose Mourinho, whose contract dwarved Erik ten Hag’s.

The MEN reported Mourinho earned in excess of £20 million per year on his annual salary at United.

Louis van Gaal earned £8 million per year at United, £1 million less than Ten Hag will receive.

Ten Hag has the best win percentage (74 per cent) of any Ajax manager over the past 20 years, and also superior to Van Gaal’s stint (68 per cent).

  • Erik ten Hag: 74 per cent
  • Peter Bosz: 64 per cent
