RTÉ Did Well To Coax An Erik Ten Hag Exclusive Out Of Alex Ferguson

Manchester United supporters will be hoping that the appointment of Erik ten Hag will halt the club's steady slide over the last decade or so.

Alex Ferguson left the club as Premier League champions in 2013, but they have not come close to climbing such heights since then. United have won a handful of trophies, including a Europa League and FA Cup, although the gap between themselves and the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool has been widening.

This season provided the strongest evidence yet of their demise. Despite spending big on the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho, and Rapahel Varane last summer, they have had a disastrous campaign and look nailed on to miss out on a Champions League spot for next season.

Ole Gunner Solskjaer ultimately paid with his job, and while Ralf Rangnick has overseen the first team in recent months, Erik ten Hag will now be the man tasked with returning the club to its former glories.

The Dutchman has been a popular choice among the supporters, with the Old Trafford hierarchy hugely impressed with him during the interview process.

We had yet to hear Alex Ferguson's take on the new manager, although RTÉ did well to get a bit of an exclusive from the Scot yesterday.

Ferguson was attending Punchestown as owner of horse Clan des Obeaux and as RTÉ had a quick chat with him, they managed to get in a question about the new United boss.

The new manager? I hope he does well.

The club needs somebody to get in control, so I hope he does well.

Ferguson hinting that the club is out of control at the moment certainly seems accurate, with United having put together an almost unmanageable dressing room in recent years.

Despite his obvious talents, Erik ten Hag will have a big job on his hands to turn that particular aspect of the team around.
