The Devils are back as Erik Ten Hag officially begins Man United reign with 20 stars
The Erik Ten Hag era at Manchester United is finally underway after the Dutchman welcomed some of his new players back for preseason.
Ten Hag and his coaching crew, which includes Steve McClaren, welcomed no fewer than 20 players to their training ground for the first day of preseason.
With some of the players still on break, Ten Hag finally got the chance to get to work since he was appointed as the new boss.
The 52-year-old was named as the latest coach to attempt to help restore United’s past glory days when he was appointed as the permanent coach just before the end of last season.
Since then, the former Ajax manager has been waiting in the wings to get his hands and feet dirty with the players and yesterday he finally got to meet some of his new players.
