Man Utd keeper De Gea: Players excited about Ten Hag

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea says the players are enjoying preseason under new manager Erik ten Hag.

The Dutchman is gearing up for his first pre-season tour since being named the club's new permanent manager and has been casting an eye over his players this past week.

Ten Hag took charge of training for the first time on Monday and has spent the last few days getting to know his new players ahead of their summer schedule.

De Gea told club media: "We are all very excited for the new season. The new manager, he plays very good football, so for sure, the fans will love it."

United fly out for their pre-season tour next Friday, with Ten Hag's reign set to start with a friendly against Liverpool in Bangkok on July 12.

He added: "I think it is great to be able to travel and to be able to play in front of our fans, especially away from England, around the world. It is always great to be with your fans and hopefully we can make them enjoy it."
