Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag is under no illusions about the expectations at the club.

The Dutchman gave his first press conference on Monday, where he spoke with journalists and also conducted an interview with the club’s in-house media.

Ten Hag takes over from interim boss Ralf Rangnick, who could only guide United to 6th place in the Premier League.

Asked about the history of United, Ten Hag commented: “We don’t have to go over my football.

“It’s about the Man United football and about the Man United identity and philosophy. I think that you pointed it out: it has to be about attacking football. We have to bring structures in the way of playing, so we can play attacking football.”

He added: “Of course. I know the history of Man United, I know the big times and the audience, the vibe that can be around Old Trafford. I watched them in their big times, when Sir Alex Ferguson was manager, during the really successful times when they won titles and were dominating Europe.

“But also before Sir Alex, Man United was a really big club and I know names like Busby and Charlton that gave Man United a presence to the outside world from winning, and winning in a spectacular way, winning so they entertain people. What stays with me is there was always a fighting culture. They fight together and they get success.”
