News From Manchester: Ajax legend tells Manchester United how to get the best out of Erik ten Hag

Ten Hag was in the stands at Selhurst Park to watch his new team lose 1-0 by Crystal Palace on Sunday. Former United man Wilfried Zaha scored the only goal of the game as Ralf Rangnick's side fell to yet another loss to conclude a disappointing season.

Despite the result, West Ham's loss to Brighton and Hove Albion in their final fixture ensured that United will be playing Europa League football in the next campaign. Returning United to the heights Sir Alex Ferguson managed will be a huge job, however Dutch football legend Patrick Kluivert has explained how Ten Hag can gain success in Manchester.

Speaking to Sky Sports, the former Ajax man said: “He did a fantastic job in the years when he was training for Ajax. Manchester United is a different ball game of course but if he has got the right tools he can do a good job.

“He is very serious and he knows what he is doing. The only thing that he needs is time but in top football time is very curious.”
