RICHARD ARNOLD has reassured Manchester United fans that the club will bounce back after a terrible season.
Supporters have spent the last few months protesting against club chiefs.
They have also demanded that the Glazer family sell-up.
But Chief Executive Arnold believes that the appointment of Erik ten Hag is a step in the right direction.
When speaking at a supporters forum, he said: “Everyone at the club, from the owners down, accepts that performances this season have been well below what we expect.
“Suffice to say, we are not happy with where we are in terms of performance on the pitch.

“We are taking decisive action to improve things and there is huge commitment and passion across the club to return to where we think we belong – challenging for, and winning, titles.
“We feel confidence that change is coming because of the action being taken to drive long-term success.
“The appointment of Erik ten Hag was the most visible example of that action, and the most important.
“We’re pleased to have got that done early and we can’t wait for Erik to get started.

“Success won’t be achieved overnight but we are determined to get there, and we will be relentless in our efforts to achieve it.
“I would very much hope that all fans within Old Trafford approach next season with renewed optimism and confidence as we look forward to a fresh start under Erik ten Hag.”
Ten Hag wasn’t best pleased when he watched his side live for the first time on the final day of the season.
The Red Devils suffered a 1-0 defeat to Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park which marked a fitting end to an underwhelming campaign.
Man Utd are plotting a complete overhaul ahead of next season.
At least seven players are expected to leave this summer, including Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Nemanja Matic and Juan Mata.
The club have also put together a list of potential replacements.

Ten Hag is said to be eager to reunite with former Ajax midfielder Frenkie De Jong, but Barcelona have put a £65million price tag on the star.
Villarreal’s Pau Torres is another name that has been discussed.
