Erik ten Hag is a pundit for the England game versus Serbia tonight on Dutch television and has spoken out for the first time on Manchester United’s decision to keep him as manager.

Ten Hag, who was on holiday in Ibiza started by stating: “Manchester United disturbed my holiday, they suddenly stood at my doorstep.

“Manchester United have told me that they spoke with Tuchel, but they eventually came to the conclusion that they already have the best manager.”

When quizzed on a new potential contract, he bluntly answered:

“Manchester United and I still have to find an agreement for the new contract. This isn’t easily done, we are still going to have to talk about this..”

Showing their huge keenness to keep Ten Hag, he said “They (Man Utd) flew to Ibiza.”
