Rangnick believes that complete preparation for the season will help Ten Hag in Man Utd

Erik ten Haga’s appointment reportedly met with an overwhelming response in Manchester United’s locker room.

The Dutchman was confirmed as the next boss of Old Trafford on Thursday, when he signed a three-year contract with a fourth option, so Ajax will leave at the end of the season. Ten Hag plans to bring his own coaching team with him, as Mitchell Van der Gaag is to join as his No. 2, although Ajax is trying to stay in Amsterdam by offering him a chance to succeed Ten Haga.

The 52-year-old is ready to bring in former English boss Steve McLaren, but Wayne Rooney will remain in Derby County after refusing a chance to seal his dream return to Old Trafford. Ten Hag and his team have a monumental task ahead of them to turn the club’s fortunes with problems that persist on and off the field.

There has been disharmony in the locker room since the beginning of the season, led by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, with several players who are not married to United and are looking to leave the club. And it is clear that not much has changed since then – not even after Norway’s dismissal and the temporary takeover of Rangnick – based on their reaction to the appointment of Ten Hag.

The Guardian claims that the Dutchman’s arrival had a mixed reception on the part of United, with some players being “ambiguous and others being stunned.” During the search for a new manager, The Mirror exclusively revealed that Mauricio Pochettino decided to take the lead after Rangnick, but it is difficult to understand why Ten Hag is perceived with such negativity.

The head of Ajax is a proven winner and is known for playing attractive football and developing players, for which the team should shout given the season they are currently experiencing. The fact that his appointment did not meet with sincere positivity sums up the enormous task facing Ten Hag, as the locker room is clearly irreparable.

It supports United’s plans for a big clear-out with up to 12 players ready to leave the club in the upcoming window. Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic, Jesse Lingard, Edinson Cavani, Juan Mata and Lee Grant are ready to leave as free agents, while at least six other players including Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Eric Bailly, Phil Jones, Alex Telles, Anthony Martial and Marcus. Rashford could join them. This would allow Ten Hag to begin a major overhaul with Ralf Rangnick, who indicated that there would be up to ten newcomers.

The Hag will have a £ 200 million budget to operate this summer, with targets for Harry Kane, Declan Rice, Darwin Nunez, Ruben Neves, Jurrien Timber and Antony.
