Erik Ten Hag has shifted his focus on his new job at Manchester United after a successful season at Ajax.

New Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hag has shifted his focus to the Old Trafford club following a successful season with Ajax.

Ten Hag was appointed as the manager of Manchester United and will not replace interim manager Ralf Rangnick next summer as the German will move into a consultancy role.

Speaking about the job he has to do at the club Ten Hag said: “There will be a party tomorrow [Monday] with the entire staff, but that will be it then.

“No, I will not be joining them [to Curacao]. That is correct, I think that’s understandable.

“There’s a lot of work to be done there [at United]. Of course. There’s a lot of work at every club. A manager’s job is especially focused on the preparations for next season. And there’s a lot of work to be done in that regard.

“Regarding the staff, there are several things that need to be organised. And also regarding the team and over the next several days, or actually as of tomorrow [Monday], we will be focusing on that intensively.”

The Dutchman is reportedly keen to bring his assistant from Ajax, Mitchell van der Gaag with him, as well as include Steve McClaren, a former assistant to Sir Alex Ferguson at United, as part of his coaching staff.

Ten Hag, who signed a three-year deal at United which can be extended by a year, will become the club’s fifth permanent manager since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013.

United are sixth in the Premier League with a win at Crystal Palace on the final day of the season guaranteeing Europa League football next season, although if they lose they could finish seventh.
