Man Utd news: Erik ten Hag sent ‘painful’ reality check ahead of appointment | Football | Sport

“Now, they need to put pieces in place that will allow them to challenge in two or three seasons. As painful as that sounds to United fans, that’s the reality of it all.”

United great Rio Ferdinand agrees it will take time and says Ten Hag must build a culture at the club. Ferdinand said: “You look at Sir Alex Ferguson there and what he did, he built a culture over many years and had plenty of support in that time.

“But, he built a culture. Managers nowadays have to do that much quicker. You see with Pep and Jurgen Klopp they can build a culture and implement that, but this manager (Ten Hag) will need that time and have to show the signs early on to get that.”
