Erik ten Hag has warned Manchester United’s Premier League rivals he will bring ‘a winner’s mentality’ to the club this summer.
Ten Hag won his third Eredivisie title with Ajax on Wednesday night. Ajax delivered an emphatic performance to beat Heerenveen 5-0 at the Amsterdam Area and those three points ensured they successfully defended their Dutch league title.
Ten Hag will now make the move to Manchester in the coming weeks to permanently succeed interim manager Ralf Rangnick. Ten Hag has joined United on a three-year deal with the option of another year and will oversee an unprecedented rebuild.

United have endured a miserable season and it will be the biggest challenge of Ten Hag’s career to transform the club’s fortunes.
However, the 52-year-old seems confident he’s the perfect manager to do so, explaining to supporters on Wednesday night that he had brought a ‘winning mentality’ to Ajax, which is something they should expect from him at Old Trafford.
“We brought a certain culture in this club. A winner’s mentality,” Ten Hag told reporters after lifting the trophy.
Ten Hag will become United’s fifth permanent manager since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013.
