“While this has not been the start to the season that we had all hoped for, I am certain that we have the talent and attitude as a collective to move in the right direction,” Ten Hag wrote in United Review. “I believe that it is only a matter of time before we are showing our true selves. It will come, I am certain.”
Erik ten Hag’s determination and belief in the team’s potential suggest that he is committed to steering Manchester United toward a more positive trajectory. Fans will be eager to see how the team responds to this rallying cry.
