Ten Hag must have “full control” at Man Utd - Yorke

The Ajax boss will become Manchester United’s boss in the 2022-23 season and Dwight Yorke thinks that in order to implement his style, he needs control.

coach penned a three-year contract that includes an option to extend for another year. His reign will start at the beginning of the next season when Ralf Rangnick will take the consultancy role at the club.

Ten Hag will have a hard job to do in Manchester, with many speculations surrounding Harry Maguire’s captaincy and Cristiano Ronaldo and Paul Pogba’s future.

United are not able to reserve a place in the Champions League as they sit six points adrift of Arsenal in the fourth place.

The Red Devils have not grabbed a trophy in five years and Yorke wants Ten Hag to know the challenge he is about to take on.

"I think [Ten Hag has] got a very difficult job,"

Yorke told



"Simply because it has been a bit of a disaster for us as a football club in terms of personnel and where the team is at.

"There's no hiding place in that. We're not where we're supposed to be. But there's a new beginning, a new start for a manager who a lot of people don't particularly know.

"Obviously, he has done well in Holland. [But] the Premier League is a whole new ball game. Manchester United's manager is on a whole different level.

"You've seen the previous managers that have come there with big names and big reputations and they haven't really got over the line. There's no doubt the job at hand is something he needs to embrace."

Ten Hag’s condition to accept the role was to have some ruling over signings in the transfer window. Moreover, Yorke thinks Ten Hag should be given time and control to be successful with the task in hand.

"I keep saying that he has to embrace going in there and have full control," said Yorke, who scored 48 times in 96 league appearances for United between 1998 and 2002.

"If he has full control he can implement his style, his way, and the players that he wants on board to make sure he can get the best out of them. I think that is the key.

"I think they will give him time, the fans are aware of that. But they want to see progress. I know people are saying it will take some time but ultimately they will want to see some progress along the way.

"I can only stand and watch and wish him the best in many respects. But there is no doubt this is the biggest job in world football and with the struggles we've encountered this season, there is no way that is going to be an easy task for him."
