Manchester United transfer news LIVE Kalvin Phillips to Man Utd latest plus Erik ten Hag and Ronaldo updates
What United can expect from Ten Hag and Van der Gaag
The excitement is growing as Manchester United prepare to welcome Erik ten Hag to the club at the end of the season. After an extensive search for the next permanent manager, United settled on the Ajax boss as their preferred candidate for the role, with club sources insisting it was a unanimous decision to back the 52-year-old.
Ten Hag is expected to be joined in Manchester by his current Ajax assistant, Mitchell van der Gaag, and the duo will arrive at the club with the full support of the United fanbase. But, despite being the popular choice amongst fans on social media, they still represent somewhat of an enigma.
There can be no denying the success Ten Hag has enjoyed at Ajax, but very few pundits will actually have watched the Dutch champions play many domestic games, or have first-hand experience of what the new manager is really like.
