Ten Hag on Champions League chase: We have everything in our hands

Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hag has stated that the club needs the Champions League spot for the project he has embarked on.

The Red Devils will visit Bournemouth on Saturday and they will seek to keep the top four hope alive.

Defeats against Brighton and West Ham prior to the victory over Wolves coupled with Liverpool’s strong finish to the season have put Manchester United’s Champions League hopes in some jeopardy.

They have a one-point advantage and a game in hand on their big rivals but can ill afford any more slip-ups.

Erik ten Hag only has to look across the city to see the level United are aspiring to return to, but he knows finishing in the top four is key to everything.

“When I see this project, first of all it’s important to get in the Champions League,” he said. “I don’t think today at that standard, I look to the next game, and that’s Bournemouth.

“We have to win that game to get in the Champions League. We have everything in our hands so focus on the game, the games coming up, the first game is the most important.”

The ongoing takeover process is also creating a cloud of uncertainty over United’s plans for next season, but Ten Hag said only of the club’s hierarchy: “We are talking every day.”
