Man Utd boss Ten Hag convinced he'll be in charge next season

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag insists tonight's clash with Newcastle will not be his last in charge at Old Trafford.

Ten Hag confirmed the players will do a 'lap of appreciation' after the game.

“Yeah, we will do," Ten Hag said. “Yes, of course (we will show our appreciation to the fans).

“In good times, in bad times we are together, and the fans are showing that we are together, so, yeah, a lap of honour we will do."

Asked if it could be his own farewell, Ten Hag retorted: “Goodbye for?

“For me?! It's not how I feel it and how I see it. That's not the way I go to start that lap of honour for the fans, no."

On his relationship with the fans, Ten Hag said: “Actually yeah, if in the stadium, away and home, they are always backing the team, backing me, and also when I'm in the streets many, many come to me.

“Maybe it's just polite but I don't feel it like this. I never almost get a negative reaction because the fans understand where we are.

“The fans understand that this club is in a transition and the huge problems we have had to face, especially in positions, in key areas."
