Erik Ten Hag said he was working to build the relationship between the club and its fans. Ten Hag told ESPN that one of his goals was to reunite the fans and the team.

Manchester United was a wreck before the arrival of Erik Ten Hag at Old Trafford. Not much has improved, but the team seems to be different from what it used to be. Under Ole Gunnar Solksjaer and backed by a hypocritical class of 92, United was a joke and the butt of many jokes in the game.

The support for Solksjaer meant that several average players were running amok at the club, with the team playing without a discernable pattern. They were hardly different from a team in a Sunday morning game at the Park. With mixed results, the occasional wins and lack of consistency by other teams gave fodder to Ole backers.

The relationship with the fans was mixed, with several calling for the departure of the Glazers, while another section backed the team, despite its mediocre performances. Erik Ten Hag believes he is succeeding in fixing the relationship between the fans and the team, though they are still struggling to get back to the top.

Ten Hag is trying to rebuild the relationship between the fans and the club
It is safe to say that Manchester United is a work in progress. The team has been without a stable environment and a purposeful plan for the future. Perhaps the arrival of Erik Ten Hag is the elixir the team needs to propel it to the top of English football again.

Recently the Dutchman said he was working to build the relationship between the club and its fans. Ten Hag said he noticed a disconnect between the two parties upon the commencement of the job of manager of the club. Ten Hag believes it was within his capacity to fix the anomaly.

Manchester United have fallen off the track and playing catch-up. The three of their final 14 games in all competitions last season. Ten Hag has his hands full trying to change the narration. The Dutchman was in the stands at Selhurst Park for the final day defeat to Crystal Palace, as the team received a hostile reception. Since taking over, Ten Hag said he has worked on rebuilding the lost confidence the fans have. He said he wants to bring the fans and the team together again.

Building togetherness at Old Trafford
Ten Hag told ESPN that one of his goals was to reunite the fans and the team. He claims that they need a connection with the fans. According to Ten Hag, Manchester United is that big and must be committed and engage with the fans.

Speaking further, Ten Hag opined that they must build togetherness and act like that on the pitch. The former Ajax manager believes the team has to understand that everyone around Manchester United must know the fans are there for them. He said they play football for the fans and be aware of it.

Ten Hag met with representatives of 13 supporter clubs on Wednesday. He took questions from them during a special news conference ahead of the Carabao Cup third-round tie with Aston Villa.

He told the fans to expect a reaction from the team after the 3-1 defeat at Villa Park on Sunday.
