Erik Ten Hag Spotted Meeting Manchester United Fans Outside Of Old Trafford

New Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag has been meeting fans outside the club’s home ground, Old Trafford after being officially unveiled as Ralf Rangnick’s successor.

Ten Hag was at Selhurst Park yesterday and witnessed first-hand what a tough job he has in front of him. United ended their season with yet another disappointment, a goal from Wilfried Zaha gave Crystal Palace a narrow 1-0 win over the Red Devils.

United finished 6th in a season that started with real optimism after the arrivals of Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane and the sensational return of Cristiano Ronaldo. But the optimism soon faded as the club made a poor start in the Premier League, which led to the sacking of club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the appointment of Rangnick.

Dutchman ten Hag arrived after leading Ajax to the Eredivisie title and will be looking to turn the club’s fortune around. Only Jose Mourinho and Louis van Gaal managed to win trophies since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013.

Fans around Old Trafford spotted ten Hag outside the club shop after the new boss did his first interview as the man at the United helm.

He was filmed posing for pictures and signing autographs with some lucky United supporters.

Speaking to MUTV, ten Hag sent out a clear message to his players.

He said: “I have high expectations from myself and that is also what I demand from my squad.”

“They have to co-operate together and they have to give every day their best. And I would say, for me, good is not good enough. We have to do better.”

Ten Hag also spoke about his aim with the team, he said: “It’s first: accept the current situation but also know one year ago, this club, this team was second in the Premier League.”

“There’s potential and now it’s up to us to get that out. It’s a process, it will take time but I’m convinced we will come to that point where we get success.”

“We have to work hard and it has to be based on the right philosophy and strategy.”

United will be in for a busy summer with the squad heading for a much needed make over, with many arrivals and departures expected at the club.
