KARACHI: Erik ten Hag, the newly appointed manager of Manchester United, has called the role at Old Trafford a "big challenge".

The Dutch replaced Ralf Rangnick, who was appointed as United's interim manager with a two years consultancy role afterward.

Speaking to MUTV, the former Ajax coach said: "The current situation is not that good. It's a big challenge."

Ten Hag vowed to make the Red Devils a united team that fights for each other.

"I want to build and construct a team who are battling for each other, who are unified, and who will get results. Also, we are playing in the Theatre of Dreams.

"We want to entertain. But in the end, the intention is to play fantastic football. If we can't play fantastic football, we still have to win."

Under the leadership of Rangnick, United finished sixth with 58 points, and Ten Hag has indeed a challenging task to take on at the Theatre of Dreams.

Earlier, the Norwegian coach had also said that Ten Hag needs to perform an "open heart operation" at United and sign seven or eight players to strengthen the squad.
