Speaking with MUTV in his first official interview about how he feels to take over as Man United manager, Erik ten Hag said: “I would say the word ‘exciting’.
“I really look forward to doing this job, at this club with massive history, and we want to restore it where it belongs.
“I think many [reasons]. First of all, we want to make the fans proud. Second, of course, we are in this moment, the current situation is obviously not that good.
“It’s a big challenge. I want to build and construct a team who are battling for each other, who are unified and who will get results.
“Also we are playing in the Theatre of Dreams. We want to entertain. But in the end, the intention is to play fantastic football. If we can’t play fantastic football, we still have to win.”
Ten Hag has officially taken over from Ralf Rangnick and will look to make changes to the squad before pre-season starts.
