Ten Hag has joined United on a three-year contract with the option of an additional year and he’ll be aiming to take United back into the Champions League in his first season. Ten Hag will take over at United once Ralf Rangnick has managed his final game.

The 52-year-old reassured supporters with his answer, outlining that outside criticism should never influence his dressing room.
