Ten Hag held his press conference as Man United manager on Monday and spoke of the project. 

Asked what he wants to achieve in his first season at Old Trafford, he replied: "I said this is the project, to bring Man United back on top, but also we have to accept the current situation we are in.

"First of all, Man United belong in the Champions League, so that will be the first target."

The 52-year-old added: "For me, every game is important.​

"We want to win every game and that has to be the attitude from everyone: players, but also staff and all the other ones in the club.

"Every game is important and we will give our best in every game to win and to come forward."
