Man Utd Confirm Appointment Of Van Nistelrooy As Ten Hag’s Assistant

He also netted 35 goals in 70 appearances for the Netherlands. In his recent managerial role, he guided PSV Eindhoven to a second-place finish in the Eredivisie and a Dutch Cup triumph in 2022/2023.

United’s sporting director Dan Ashworth welcomed van Nistelrooy back to the club, stating that refreshing the coaching staff was an important part of strengthening all areas of the men’s first-team operations.
