Man Utd hero Sir Alex Ferguson outlines Erik ten Hag hope in first words since appointment

Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson has made his first public comments about Erik ten Hag since he was appointed as the club’s new manager. Earlier this month, United confirmed Ten Hag would be taking charge at Old Trafford this summer.

Ten Hag, completing his fourth full season as Ajax boss, will succeed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and become United’s fifth permanent manager since Sir Alex’s retirement in 2013. The club have endured a largely dismal last decade, in which David Moyes, Louis van Gaal, Jose Mourinho and Solskjaer have all fallen to the sword.

On Wednesday, Sir Alex, part-owner of horse Clan des Obeaux, spoke to RTE Racing about the competitor’s chances of success at this week’s Punchestown Festival. And at the end of the interview, the iconic Scotsman was asked for his thoughts on Ten Hag’s imminent arrival.

He said: “Well, I hope he does well because the club needs someone to get in control. I hope he does well, yeah.” Alongside him, commentary legend Des Scahill added: “Well, we were spoiled; this man [Sir Alex] gave us so many great days. We suffering at the moment but we keep the faith.”
