Man Utd handed ‘extra fee’ to sack Erik ten Hag as contract clause emerges

Manchester United could be forced to pay an additional hefty compensation fee to Erik ten Hag if they decide to part ways with the head coach after their FA Cup victory. The Red Devils are currently undergoing a season review, which will determine Ten Hag’s future at the club, following their surprise Wembley win over local rivals Manchester City.

Last season saw United finish in eighth place in the Premier League, their lowest position in 34 years, which ordinarily would see them miss out on a European spot.

This failure to secure a place in Europe meant that Ten Hag was facing a 25 per cent cut to his £9million-a-year salary, reducing it to £6.75m. However, United’s impressive 2-1 victory over City secured them a spot in next season’s Europa League, saving Ten Hag from a significant salary reduction as per his contract terms according to the Daily Mirror.
