Erik ten Hag has hailed Cristiano Ronaldo as a ‘great player’ and believes the Portuguese will bring goals to his Manchester United team
The former Ajax manager was confirmed as Ralf Rangnick’s successor back in April and has taken over the reins now that the season is over.
Speaking at his first press conference as United boss, the Dutchman took a number of questions about the huge job that he has on his hands.
One major talking point around the club right now is whether Cristiano Ronaldo will stay for at least the first season of Ten Hag’s tenure
When asked if the Portuguese forward will stay, the 52-year-old said: “Of course. He will bring goals!”

Ten Hag also insisted there’s a huge potential in the Manchester United team he’s inheriting
He added: “The season before, this squad was second in the Premier League and there’s huge potential. If we improve, if we can work with them, we can get better results.
“We have to set clear purposes, you need people who have a positive attitude
“Players dictate the way of play, when I have the idea, I will line up my best team and get the best out of them to make them feel comfortable. It is about getting success together.”
