No one ever gave him a chance over Man City.

But new co-owner, Sir Jim Ratcliffe, and his INEOS group subsequently conducted an end-of-the-season review to judge the performance of Ten Hag and on Tuesday, it was reported that the club have decided to retain the 54-year-old’s services.

According to The Telegraph, the owners did consider the names of “half a dozen” top managers including Mauricio Pochettino, Thomas Frank, Kieran McKenna, Roberto De Zerbi and Gareth Southgate.

However, the club did not consider any of the candidates as an exceptional alternative to the former Ajax coach. This prompted them to continue with him.

Also, the club officials felt that changing the manager without appointing the perfect alternative could further negatively impact the team.

They are already near the 2024/25 season when the club plans to turn things around by rebuilding their squad.
