Erik Ten Hag answers the all important question about Cristiano Ronaldo

Erik Ten Hag is set to take over at Manchester United from next season. The Dutchman has terminated his contract with Ajax six weeks early and will effectively start work at Manchester United today.

Ten Hag wants to get started with Manchester United as soon as possible. In a recent interview, Ten Hag talked about Man United, his time at Ajax and Cristiano Ronaldo.

“As a coach I have been able to develop myself tremendously [at Ajax]. The coach must give direction, not let himself be distracted by peripheral issues. He develops a playing method and must ensure that it is implemented.”

Ten Hag also expressed his concern about the current situation of Man United:

“There’s a lot of work to do there. In the staff there are still some things to be organized and also in the squad. We will be very much concerned about that.”

“The detailed analysis still has to begin, I still have to work with the team, but let me be clear that at United there are a lot of good players around. We have to make them function as a team.”

Ten Hag also talked about Cristiano Ronaldo and expressed his desire for the Portuguese to stay.

Ronaldo has been rumored to a move away from Old Trafford and several news outlets have reported Ten Hag doesn’t want the Portuguese in the squad. However, Ten Hag answered:

“Ronaldo is a giant, because of what he’s already shown and I think he’s still very ambitious. Of course I would like to keep him. He’s been very important to Manchester United this year and can produce great statistics.”
