Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United era has officially begun as the new manager has arrived for his first day at Carrington.

Dutch boss ten Hag arrived at the training field at 8 a.m. on Monday, driven by a driver, with his players reporting for the preparation of the season.

Ten Hag was announced in April as United’s new manager, replacing interim Ralf Rangnick, who has left the club.

He started preparing for his role in May, but is now training for the first time with his Red Devils players.

And newly appointed assistant coach Steve McClaren was also pictured stopping by Carrington, 21 years after leaving his role as Sir Alex Ferguson’s number 2 at Old Trafford.

Several first-team stars will be absent after playing the Nations League international matches in June.

But despite a significant number of absentees still enjoying their holidays, 15 seniors will still show up for their first season under ten Hag.

He will have a lot of work to do as they finished sixth in the Premier League last season, 13 points off the Champions League places.

The Red Devils narrowly led West Ham to second place in Europa League qualifiers, narrowly missing out on the disgrace of the Europa Conference League third division.

Several players have left the club this summer, including Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic, Juan Mata, Edinson Cavani, Jesse Lingard and Lee Grant – all transferred for free.

But ten Hag will undoubtedly want to move a number of players, including Dean Henderson, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Alex Telles, Phil Jones, Eric Bailly, Andreas Pereira and Anthony Martial with an uncertain future.
