"The Club Needs Someone To Get Control".
Manchester United's legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson insists incoming manager Erik ten Hag needs to get in control of the club if he wants to bring back the glory days.
The Dutchman will be the fifth permanent successor to Ferguson since the Scot retired at the end of the 2012/13 season.
David Moyes, Louis van Gaal, Jose Mourinho, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer have all failed to succeed at Old Trafford. Current substitute teacher, Ralf Rangnick has not found life in the hot seat any easier - as his squad currently sit sixth in the Premier League.
The Red Devils' struggles include no Premier League titles since Ferguson's departure, and going trophy less since winning the Europa League under Jose Mourinho in 2017.
Appearing in his capacity as the co-owner of a horse, Sir Alex told RTE Racing:
'I hope he does well [Ten Hag], because the club needs someone to get in control.'
The 80-year-old went on to reveal he 'hopes' Ten Hag is the right man for the job
He added: 'I hope he does well yeah.'
