Speaking to the club website, 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.”

The Dutchman kicks off a new era at United, replacing Ralf Rangnick, who was the interim manager after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was fired.

United finished in sixth place this past season and have just gone five years without winning any silverware.

  • INSIGHT: Erik ten Hag worked for two years at Bayern Munich II, learning from first team boss Pep Guardiola.
  • IMPACT: After a spell at Utrecht, Ten Hag was hired by Ajax and within 18 months had led them to a Champions League semi-final.
  • TROPHIES: Ten Hag has won two Eredivisie titles with Ajax and two KNVB Cups, and hopes to win a third title this season.
  • GOALS: Ajax have scored 98 goals in the league this season and conceded only 19 in 34 matches.

Ten Hag believes United are better than the league position this past season suggested, adding: “Also know one year ago, this club, this team was second in the Premier League. There’s potential and now it’s up to us to get that out. It’s a process, it will take time but I’m convinced we will come to that point where we get success. We have to work hard and it has to be based on the right philosophy and strategy.”

Ten Hag’s assistant coaches Mitchell van der Gaag and Steve McClaren have also been confirmed by the club.
