Man Utd players and Cristiano Ronaldo look delighted after Erik ten Hag agrees to take job

Manchester United players including Cristiano Ronaldo were all smiles in training after it emerged Erik ten Hag had agreed to take over at Old Trafford. The Ajax boss is poised to replace Ralf Rangnick at the end of the campaign. Yet though it’s been an underwhelming campaign for the Red Devils, members of the squad still seem to be in good spirits.

On Tuesday night, news broke that Ten Hag had verbally agreed to become United’s next manager.

And players training on Wednesday seemed to be delighted with the news as they were put through their paces by Rangnick at Carrington.

Ronaldo had a big smile in his face as the veteran got to work, despite the Portugal international being in the spotlight after allegedly breaking a young supporter’s phone in their 1-0 defeat to Everton on Saturday.

Rangnick also seemed to be in a good mood as the German oversaw the session.

Nemanja Matic appeared to be enjoying himself as he worked on his witness alongside Anthony Elanga and Victor Lindelof.

Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Eric Bailly, though, all had tense expressions as they looked to build up their fitness.
