Erik ten Hag is adamant he still has the backing of Manchester United’s board as he urged his team to fight back from their slump.

United’s poor season hit a new low on Tuesday night, losing 3-2 to Galatasaray at Old Trafford – the team’s sixth loss in 10 matches this season.

Serious questions are being asked of Ten Hag’s reign amid growing pressure following the club’s poor start to the season.

But the Dutchman believes he still has the support of United’s hierarchy saying: ‘Last season went brilliant, terrific more than we could expect.

‘But also in this project we knew there would be gaps and in this period we are in a very difficult period but we come out together, fight together, stick together and that is me the directors, the team, altogether we will fight.

‘This is not us we know we will do better.’

Meanwhile, Ten Hag has backed Andre Onana after the new goalkeeper’s latest error.

The summer arrival from Inter Milan’s second half error led to United conceding a penalty – that Mauro Icardi eventually missed – and Casemiro being sent off for trying to atone for his team-mate’s mistake.

‘We are happy with our goalkeeping group, Andre was in one semi final in the Champions League, last season he was in final of the Champions League so he has capabilities to be one of the best goalkeepers in the world and he has shown that.

‘We have already seen in games his great capabilities also his personality, he will bounce back.’
