In an interview with Dutch outlet Trouw, Erik ten Hag was asked about what conditions he set before agreeing to join Man United. He said: “I make demands in advance before I arrive. If the club doesn’t grand them I won’t take the job.
“I am the one responsible, I am the one who will get judged by results. I don’t want to be a ruler, I will work together, but having a say in transfers is a condition for me.”
It was confirmed by Fabrizio Romano that Ten Hag wants to work together with the board on transfers, but also wants a major say on the kind of players brought in.
The Dutchman is currently focused on helping Ajax win the Eredivisie title this season and will start his work with United after the campaign is over.
