The Dutchman has a gigantic task on his shoulders, as he is tasked with bringing the glory days back to a fallen giant.
Asked about his style of play during his first press conference on Monday, ten Hag responded: “The way we did it – with dominant, dictating football – that is the way I want to act in Man United as well.
“But finally the competence and the quality of the people – so the players – decide how you have to play.”
He added: “We are playing in the Theatre of Dreams and have to entertain the opponent. We are playing in the opponent’s half and we have to do attacking football.
“We have to do the pressing, the total high-pressing – that is a similarity also – and the adventurous football.”
