Dutch centre-back Matthijs de Ligt has tipped his former Ajax boss Erik ten Hag to be a success at new club Manchester United.

Ten Hag has replaced Ralf Rangnick in the Old Trafford dugout this summer and is already getting to work to rebuild United after a bitterly disappointing campaign which saw them finish sixth in the Premier League with their lowest points total in the history of the division.

It’s undoubtedly a hefty task but it’s one for which De Ligt believes Ten Hag has all the qualities needed to succeed.

“He is someone who loves his job and he loves to work,” De Ligt explained. “He’s really into the details. This makes him a really good trainer.

“He has a lot of qualities [to succeed]. We will have to see how he goes.”
