Ten Hag relishing challenge to restore Man Utd to its former glory.

Ten Hag relishing the challenge to restore Man Utd into a side challenging for major honours.

Erik ten Hag has admitted that bringing the glory days back to Manchester United is his main goal.

The new Man United boss ten Hag said he has spoken to the Glazer family, and knows what the club owners want and expect.

Since Sir Alex Ferguson left the helm at Old Trafford, the Red Devils have lacked discipline and consistency, and the new Dutch coach has become the sixth manager to take the hot seat since the Scot retired as champion in 2013.

However, former Ajax boss Ten Hag is relishing the challenge of turning the 20-time champions into a force to be reckoned with going forward.

"Manchester United is a big name," the Dutchman said. "It's a real challenge to get them again restored to where they belong. I am highly motivated to get that done.

"We want to win every game and it doesn't matter who the opponent is.

"I think that belongs to the status of Manchester United and that is what we will do. That will be the demand of the squad and of every player."

Ten Hag: Ronaldo still in his plans.

Erik ten Hag is still looking forward to working with Cristiano Ronaldo, despite reports heavily linking the Portuguese with several clubs across the globe.

The 37-year-old returned to Old Trafford last summer but his impressive displays were not enough to secure a Champions League spot for a below-par United that finished sixth in the English top flight.

"It is clear - he is not for sale," he said after training in Melbourne. "I planned with (having) him, and I am looking forward to working with him.

"But for the rest I cannot say anymore because the situation is still the same as last week."
