Erik ten Hag has urged Manchester United's hierarchy to trust him to return the club to their former glories.

It comes after Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Newcastle, their 10th loss in 21 games this season.

There have also been claims of unrest behind the scenes, with some players reported to be unhappy with Ten Hag, or his training and tactical methods.

BBC Sport has been told similar accounts.

On Tuesday, the club reacted furiously at not being given the right of reply to these claims and excluded representatives of four media organisations, including senior Premier League broadcasting partner Sky, from their scheduled news conference to preview Wednesday's league match at Old Trafford against Chelsea.

Questions have been levelled at Ten Hag, whose side are seventh in the Premier League, five points behind fourth-placed Aston Villa, are out of the EFL Cup and bottom of their Champions League group.

Yet, after 10 years without a title challenge following the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson, Ten Hag is adamant he is the right man to deliver sustained success.

United finished third last season after Ten Hag's arrival and won the EFL Cup, their first trophy in six years.

"I know we will get there where we want to be," he told journalists on Tuesday. "Because? See my record. Everywhere where I was, every season, I got my targets.
