Ten Hag ‘working remotely’ during Rangnick’s last week as Man Utd boss and won’t disrupt preparation for Palace clash

ERIK TEN HAG will work remotely this week to avoid "causing a distraction", according to reports.

The new Manchester United manager is eager to get to work at his new club, having now finished his final duties as Ajax boss.


Following their final day 2-2 draw with Vitesse on Sunday the Amsterdam giants travelled to Curacao without Ten Hag.

Rather than jet over to England, however, the Dutchman has elected to work remotely from the Netherlands.

According to ESPN, Ten Hag is eager not to get in interim boss Ralf Rangnick's way as the German prepares the team for the last time.

United travel to Crystal Palace this weekend, with a lot still riding on the match.

The Red Devils have long since fallen out of the top four race, but even a place in the Europa League isn't assured.

If West Ham beat Brighton, United will have to beat Palace to ensure that they don't fall to seventh – which would mean Europa Conference League football next term.

While Rangnick is readying United's current crop, Ten Hag has begun planning for next season.

The 52-year-old will hope to rebuild his squad, with work set to begin during a pre-season tour of Thailand and Australia.
