Manchester United’s current manager Erik ten Hag has achieved an impressive feat by recording the best winning ratio than legendary former manager Alex Ferguson after their respective first 50 games in charge of the club.
Ten Hag, who took over the reins at Old Trafford in the summer of 2022, has enjoyed a remarkable start to his tenure, with a winning ratio of 70% in his first 50 games. This impressive statistic has surpassed the record set by Ferguson, who had a winning ratio of 59.60% in his first 50 games as United manager.
This achievement is no mean feat, considering the impact Ferguson had on Manchester United during his tenure, where he won 38 trophies in 26 years, including 13 Premier League titles and two Champions League crowns.
Ten Hag’s record-breaking performance is even more noteworthy when you consider the calibre of opposition he has faced. The Dutchman has faced several tough challenges in his first 50 games, including matches against some of Europe’s elite clubs in the Europa League.
Manchester United fans will be delighted with the progress made under ten Hag’s stewardship. The team has been playing an attacking brand of football, which has won the hearts of the Old Trafford faithful.
