Tyson Fury reacts to Manchester United appointing Erik ten Hag

Tyson Fury is preparing for his huge Wembley bout with Dillian Whyte.

Fury is a Manchester United fan and before the fight, he has given his opinion on the club’s new manager, Erik ten Hag.

The world champion has also laid into United’s players for their performance in the 4-0 defeat at Anfield.

That loss, followed up with today’s 3-1 reverse at Arsenal, has put paid to any lingering top four hopes, and it is to be hoped that next season is better.

“I don’t really know much about the guy,” said Fury of ten Hag, on ESPN UK’s YouTube channel.

“I know he was a good manager at Ajax, obviously got to the Champions League semi-final. United have had a lot of management changes over the last few years since Sir Alex Ferguson retired.

“It seems they can’t stick with one manager. It’s difficult times for Manchester United. Being a lifelong United fan to see them lose 4-0 to Liverpool was a disgrace.

“It’ll be a welcome change for sure and let’s hope they can get back to the glory days.”

Ten Hag’s popularity is in some part down to the fact he is fresh and United fans have not seen him week in week out.

That would not have been the case with Mauricio Pochettino and it is to be hoped that he comes in with a new perspective and changes the necessary at United.

Fury will be hoping like the rest of us that he can be the man to create a successful, attractive United side to take the club right back to the very top of the game.
