Manchester United are in good hands with Erik ten Hag, according to one of the club’s owners, Avram Glazer.
Ten Hag has been appointed as United’s new manager, replacing interim manager Ralf Rangnick.
The former Ajax coach was present when United lost to Crystal Palace in their last Premier League match of the season on Sunday and he started work on Monday.
United have not won the title since Alex Ferguson’s last season in 2012-13, although they finished as second place under Ole Gunnar Solskjær in the 2020-21 campaign.
This has led to frustration among fans, with several protests against Glazer’s ownership being staged this season.
Asked by Sky News at the World Economic Forum in Davos on Monday, Glazer supported Ten Hag as the right choice, while also insisting that money has “always” been spent on improving the squad, despite criticism from fans.
“That’s why we hired him, we know he’s going to do a good job,” Glazer said.
He added that “we have always spent the necessary money to buy new players” when asked if there would be funds available for Ten Hag ahead of next season.
Commenting on United’s dismal campaign, finishing in sixth place with their lowest Premier League score ever (58), Glazer said: “It’s a disappointing season, a disappointing season for all and we’re going to work hard to do the next. season a better season. “
