Erik Ten Hag's target for next season at Manchester United.

After having a very disappointing season, the new Manchester United coach who arrived yesterday Monday has started his job on a higher speed by setting his target before the new season begins.

Erik Ten Hag wants Manchester United back in champions league at the end of his first season in charge with the club. The Dutch man was unveiled as Manchester United manager at a press conference on Monday. A day after it was clear that Manchester United will be playing the Europa league come next season.

The long term ambition, of course is for United to once again be challenging for the Premier league tittle, but the 52year old has his sights set on qualification for Europe's premier competition as his first target.

That can be confirmed via a top 4 finish in the league next term. Or by winning Europa league to clinch a seeded berth in champions league group stages, which United successfully did under Jose mourinho in 2017.

"I said this is a project to bring Manchester United back on top, but also we have to accept the current situation we are in". He said when asked for what he wants to achieve at Old Trafford.

"First of all, Manchester United belongs in the champions league, so that will be the first target. For me every game is important". He added. "We want to win every game so that has to be the attitude from everyone: players, but also the stuff and all other ones. Every game is important and we will give our best in every game to come forward ".
