Wayne Rooney warns Man Utd fans about Ten Hag’s appointment
After Erik ten Hag was named as Manchester United's next permanent manager, former striker Wayne Rooney advised fans not to expect a rapid cure to the club's problems.
Ten Hag, the Ajax manager, will take over the team from interim manager Ralf Rangnick at the end of the season.
The Premier League club has agreed to a three-year contract with the Dutchman.
United's troubles will not go away "tomorrow," according to Rooney, and Ten Hag must be given time.
The Red Devils have employed and fired five different managers since Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement in 2012, and they have gone five years without a trophy.
Rooney told Sky Sports: “Obviously it’s a massive job.
It’s good to see they’ve put a manager in there. From what I've seen, it looks like they’re going to give him a bit of time. I’m sure they’re going to let him rebuild the squad because that needs to happen.
“I think the fans have to be a little bit patient with it because it’s not going to change overnight or as quickly as you would like.
So they need to be a little patient as long as they see progression and players working and playing for the shirt, with the view of maybe challenging for the title in the next three years.
