"Overall, definitely (happy with preseason), I think we make a good pre-season and we make good progress," Ten Hag told MUTV. "We are ready for the season, but I know there is still a lot of room for improvement and we have to improve.
"That is also a process that continues in the season, but for next week it's about the result as well. It (team selection) was a mixture of experience and youth, some guys met each other for the first time today, so what can you expect?
"You saw the attitude was great, they fought and worked for each other and it was positive. We created a lot of chances, okay, we also conceded chances, but I think we have to be satisfied with the performance."
Analysis by Sky Sports' Richard Morgan:
"With exactly a week to go until Man Utd kick off their Premier League season at home to Brighton - live on Sky Sports - new manager Erik ten Hag will have learned plenty from their latest friendly, their last before the real action gets under way.
"The Dutchman, having watched his new side lose 1-0 to Atletico Madrid 24 hours earlier, fielded a much-changed lineup, although he did start with new signing Martinez alongside Varane at the heart of the United defence, with the Argentine impressing before being hooked on the hour mark.
"Youngster Laird also caught the eye at right back and interestingly, Ten Hag opted to utilise both summer signing Eriksen and Van de Beek as holding midfielders in front of his back four.
"The experienced Dane ran the show from the centre of the park before also being rested with half an hour to go, but it was youngsters Tahith Chong and Garnacho Ferreyra who both really impressed with their energetic performances in attack.
"As for the main man himself, Ronaldo started up front, but after an excellent beginning, the 37-year-old's influence then began to fade, before being hooked at the break."
