The team that finished sixth last season was handed over to the new Manchester United manager with no trust. He was hired over Mauricio Pochettino in the summer and is charged with turning around their fortunes. Ten Hag hasn’t wasted any time in stating his expectations.
And McTominay is buying into what the Dutchman wants from the playing group and has expressed optimism ahead of the season opener against Brighton and Hove Albion. United, who have jetted off for their pre-season tour, welcomed Steve McClaren and Mitchell van der Gaag as Ten Hag’s assistants and they’ve made a positive impression
.”Now is the time to be optimistic,” McTominay told United Daily. “We’re really looking forward to what’s to come because the way the coaches have presented their ideas to all the players and all the staff is very promising for sure.”
