Erik Ten Hag

When Ajax manager Erik ten Hag takes over on July 1, Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata expects a “huge turnaround” in results and predicts an exciting future for the club.

Mata, a 13-time Premier League champion, thinks he understands United fans’ frustrations after a disappointing season. However, the long-serving playmaker believes ten Hag will be able to completely overhaul the team once he takes over in the summer.

‘I understand the supporters’ unhappiness after this season because I would be frustrated as well,’ Mata said.

‘But, with a new period and a new manager, I believe there is an exciting future ahead. Hopefully, there will be a significant improvement in terms of outcomes, and supporters will be pleased.’

Following the resignation of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in November due to a bad start to the season, interim manager Ralf Rangnick has struggled to turn around United’s fortunes.

United’s tense 3-2 home win over relegation-threatened Norwich on April 16 was their sole win in their last seven games in all competitions, which included losses to Liverpool, Arsenal, and Everton, as well as a Champions League round of 16 exits at Old Trafford against Atletico Madrid.

Since joining United for £37.1 million from Chelsea in January 2014, Mata has seen David Moyes, Louis van Gaal, and Jose Mourinho leave the club as managers. Mata arrived the season after Sir Alex Ferguson won United’s final Premier League title.

‘Every single game that you play at this club, you can perform better or worse,’ the former Spain international added.

‘You can have better or worse results, but as a fan, what I want to see is players giving it their all, fighting together, and representing the club as best we can… it’s a matter of pride and giving the club what it deserves.’

‘Whenever you step onto that pitch, it’s always wonderful,’ Mata added.

‘Hopefully, we can have a fantastic game and finish the season on a high note at home, because the supporters deserve it.’
