Ten Hag was speaking at Old Trafford in his first press conference as the club’s new head coach, where he set out his hopes to take the club forwards after a disppointing season ended in a 1-0 defeat at Crystal Palace on Sunday.
One of the few bright spots in a poor season was the performance of Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored 18 league goals and 24 in total. Asked whether the 37-year-old Ronaldo was part of his plans going into the new campaign, Ten Hag simply replied: “Of course.”
When pushed for what he felt Ronaldo could bring to the team, Ten Hag looked suprised by the question. “Goals!” he laughed, before adding: “I will talk to Cristiano [about the new season] before I talk to you.”
