Erik ten Hag joins Twitter after becoming Man Utd boss… but goes private and only follows ONE account

NEW Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has joined Twitter but his account is on private and only follows one account.

The 52-year-old was confirmed as the new United boss before the end of last season.


Ten Hag was in attendance for United's final fixture against Crystal Palace.

And with a change of scenery, Ten Hag has decided to also dip his feet into the digital world.

The Dutchman is now on Twitter under the username of @eriktenhag.

His account has been verified, but he's yet to add any photos or expand his followers with his account locked on private.

It's unclear as to why the account was launched but it could possibly be an attempt to secure the @ to prevent fake accounts from taking it.

On fan said: "Erik ten Hag’s on Twitter.

"Club saving the username and guarding against fakes?"

Ten Hag has a big job on his hands. A number of high profile first-team stars are set to leave the club this summer and he'll be tasked with replacing them.

Edinson Cavani, Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Lee Grant and Nemanja Matic are among the players who are leaving Old Trafford when their contracts expire.

And unfortunately for Ten Hag, he won't have the guidance of Ralf Rangnick, the interim boss he replaced.

Rangnick was supposed to be moving into an advisory role this summer to help behind the scenes.

But the German took a job with the Austrian national team and will no longer be taking up the role.
