"A club like Manchester United has to play in the Champions League", insists Ten Hag

Manchester United manager Eric Ten Hag says he will not be satisfied unless they qualify for the Champions League.

Ten Hag who joined Manchester United in the summer of 2022, led the club to its first trophy since 2016 after beating Newcastle in the EFL Cup. Ten Hag’s side also has reached the Europa League quarter-final and FA Cup semi-final.

Ahead of the match against Newcastle, Ten Hag insisted that a club like Manchester United must play Champions League football, even though they managed to sign players like Casemiro without being in competition.

"Let's make one thing clear, we have to play Champions League football,"

Ten Hag said when asked about offering new signings the opportunity to play in Europe's elite competition.

"A club like Manchester United has to play in the Champions League. So there is no misunderstanding.

"Of course, we are more interesting when we are in the Champions League, but when we are not, we are still attractive for players. I have noticed that last year when we were not in the Champions League but I want to make my point clear, we have to be in the Champions League.”

Man United will face Newcastle in the Premier League on Sunday. They are standing third in the table with 50 points after 26 matches, while Newcastle is in fifth place with 46 points.
