Erik ten Hag has the best record after 25 games of any of last 10 Man Utd managers ahead of Sir Alex Ferguson | The Sun

ERIK TEN HAG has enjoyed an impressive start to life as Manchester United manager.

The Dutchman has guided the Red Devils to fourth in the Premier League table and six wins on the spin in all competitions.


His overall tally in his first 25 competitive games as boss stands at 18 wins.

That includes superb victories over Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham earlier in the season.

It's a record that cannot be matched by any of the last 10 United bosses to have taken charge of at least 25 games.

Ten Hag has overseen 11 wins in the Premier League, as well as guiding his side to the Carabao Cup quarter-finals and into the Europa League round of 32 play-off.

On the other hand Sir Alex Ferguson, the greatest manager in United's history, won just 12 out of his first 25 games.

There's still a long way to go to match Fergie's 13 Premier League title triumphs, so Ten Hag won't be getting carried away just yet.

But his record is miles better than last season's interim gaffer, Ralf Rangnick, who won a lowly ten out of his first 25 games in charge.

Ten Hag's record is also better than that of Jose Mourinho and David Moyes, who both had 14 wins after their first 25 games.

The closest gaffer to Ten Hag's impressive record is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The former United striker was initially hired as caretaker manager when Mourinho was sacked.

But he landed the job on a permanent basis after an impressive start, and after his first 25 games in charge he had 16 wins to his name.

It's still nothing on Ten Hag though, who will be looking to make it 19 wins from 26 games in the FA Cup this weekend.

The Red Devils host struggling Everton in the third round on Friday, before a meeting with Charlton on Tuesday for a place in the Carabao Cup semi-finals.
