Erik ten Hag believes the new set-up at Manchester United has put the club on course to challenge for the Premier League title again.

Having decided to keep Ten Hag in charge after he won the FA Cup in May to secure his second trophy in two years at Old Trafford, co-owners Ineos have rebuilt the structure around him.

Sporting director Dan Ashworth has joined technical director Jason Wilcox at the club, and Ten Hag has been given two new assistants in Ruud van Nistelrooy and Rene Hake.

Speaking to MUTV on his second day back in pre-season after signing a 12-month contract extension until June 2026, Ten Hag claimed that the changes have put United in a better position to achieve success and ultimately challenge for the title again.

Asked if he is happy to be back, the Dutchman said: 'Very, otherwise I wouldn't extend my contract.'

He added: 'I am here now for two years. I said I came here to win titles, trophies. We won two trophies after a dry [run] of six years.'

'We are in a good direction, now with the new ownership coming in, they can help us. They are very supportive. We make our process and that's what we constructed across the summer. We are in a very strong position to go into attack.

'United didn't win a trophy in over six years, now we won two. But we are up for more, for higher titles, like the English title and then even more, going into Europe.

'But that's a process, that takes time, we are working on it. I know with the set-up from the club, with the changes in structure, with the changes in infrastructure around here in Carrington, we will be ready for the future and we will improve.

'You feel it here. It gives new energy, it gives a new dynamic and it will help us achieve our targets. We want to win every game. We have seen, we are capable of beating everyone.'

On Ashworth coming in to with Wilcox, he added: 'Around the football, around the first-team, that we have a strong structure that will help us.

'They are really supportive, that will help us in many ways, like scouting and recruitment, like departments of medical and performance. They are so supportive - they will raise the bar.'
