(REUTERS) – Wayne Rooney said new Manchester United supervisor Erik ten Hag will need time from the board and persistence from the followers if his squad rebuild is to attain success.
United named Ajax Amsterdam coach Ten Hag as their new supervisor to succeed interim boss Ralf Rangnick from the highest of this season, with the 52-year-old signing a three-year deal.
Ten Hag is the fifth eternal supervisor to be appointed by United since Alex Ferguson retired in 2013 and he’ll in all probability be tasked with reviving the fortunes of the Outdated Trafford membership, who’re sixth inside the Premier League with 5 matches left.
“It’s a large job,” said former United striker Rooney, who presently manages Derby County.
“I imagine it’s good to see now that they’ve put a supervisor in that it looks as if they’ll give him a bit little bit of time, from what I’ve seen.
“I’m certain they’re going to let him rebuild the squad as a result of that should occur. However I believe followers must be a bit bit affected person with it as a result of it’s not going to alter in a single day or as fast as you desire to.”
