Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo says everybody at the club is excited to welcome Erik ten Hag as our new manager.

The Dutchman wrapped up another Eredivisie title win with Ajax in midweek and is set to take over the reins from interim boss Ralf Rangnick following the final match of the Premier League season at Crystal Palace on Sunday 22 May.

Ronaldo will be out to add to his 18 league goals this term since his return to Old Trafford and our leading scorer is fully aware of the fine job Ten Hag has been doing in the Netherlands.

Ronaldo talks about Ten Hag in this preview clip from his TeamViewer Diaries video, coming soon…

The Reds' no.7 will feature in a very special upcoming episode of TeamViewer Diaries, which simply cannot be missed, and one of numerous topics covered was the subject of the next United manager.

"What I know about him is he did a fantastic job for Ajax, that he's an experienced coach," said Ronaldo in our exclusive interview. "But we need to give him time.

"Things need to change the way he wants.

"I hope we have success, of course, because, if you have success, all of Manchester is going to have success as well. I wish him the best.

"We are happy and excited, not only as players, but the supporters as well.

"I wish him the best and let's believe that, next year, we are going to win trophies."

Ronaldo has scored 24 goals in all competitions at club level this term, and helped Portugal qualify for the World Cup finals.

He picked up his second Premier League Player-of-the-Month award of the campaign at Carrington earlier this week and must be a strong contender for the Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year trophy after landing four monthly prizes - in September, October, March and April.

Look out for the TeamViewer Diaries interview in full soon on our official club channels - we'll also have exclusives with Anthony Elanga and David De Gea.
