Cristiano Ronaldo, Manchester United’s star star, has expressed support for the team’s new manager, Erik ten Hag, to seek trophies next season. However, he warned that the new commander needs time to implement the necessary changes to strengthen the team.
Ronaldo scored 24 goals in all competitions in a disappointing season as United failed to qualify for the Champions League after finishing sixth in the Premier League.
Ten Hag will join Manchester after three seasons at Ajax, where he led the Amsterdam team to three Dutch league titles and two Dutch Cup triumphs, and will replace interim manager Ralf Rangnick.
“I know he did a fantastic job at Ajax and that he is an experienced coach, but we need to give him time and things need to change – the way he wants to,” Ronaldo said in a video released by the club on Friday.
“I hope we succeed, of course, because if you (Ten Hag) succeed, all of Manchester will succeed too. So I wish him the best. We are happy and excited, not just the players but the fans as well. the best and we will believe that next year we will win trophies.”
There was a lot of speculation about Ronaldo’s future at Manchester United after a title-free run on his return to Old Trafford after 12 years, but the 37-year-old said he was content in Manchester.
“I was happy to be back at a club that really elevated my career, so it was unbelievable how I felt when I came back,” Ronaldo said. “I was and still am very happy to be here.”
