Gary Neville

Former Manchester United defender Garry Neville has warned incoming Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag.

Ten Hag has decided not to take any holiday and begun work immediately this week after the end of the Eredivisie season and Neville has warned the Dutchman to have a rest if he is to succeed at Old Trafford.

“I think if he’s coming over for a short period of time… the players are only going to be there for a week, (he needs to) sit down with the players one to one and get to know them. But I hope he goes on holiday for a couple of weeks and gets some break because the job’s big at United and the seasons are long.

“So I hope this week is to get to meet the staff because the players will all disappear after this week. I’m hoping it’s a ‘getting to know you’ trip rather than sitting down and starting to look at tactics and all that stuff.

“He needs a break; it’s a long season, he’s got a big job in front of him and he’ll need that rest come next season. He’ll need to be fresh, but I’m sure he’ll know that,” Neville told Sky Sports.

While Ten Hag is already in England, Ralf Rangnick is still in charge and will oversee the club’s last game of the season against Crystal Palace on Sunday.
