Manchester United seems to be back on the right track and thanks to four consecutive victories, the “Red Devils” have climbed to fourth place in the classification table. Coach Erik ten Hag is happy with the team’s performance, while in an interview with the prestigious Dutch side, Voetbal pointed out that the club’s managers in the past had made mistakes in the market by transferring average players. On the other hand, the Dutch coach added that at the start of the season, he had to work a lot on his mentality as United did not scare the opposition on the pitch.
“Manchester United had lost something very important, the opponents no longer feared this team. There was no team spirit on the pitch, the dynamics were lacking and the mentality was not right. I had noticed this even when I was following United as an outsider and it was then very evident when I took over the management of the team. just look at the history of the club, how did Manchester United become great? Players with the right mindset definitely had an impact.
In recent years, many players have come close, but they were of average level. You can’t play for United if you’re average, this team’s shirt is too heavy. Only personalities who can perform under extreme pressure can play for United. We needed players like that and that’s why we approached someone like Casemiro.
Along with Varane, he is one of those who has experience in winning titles. Also Malacia, Antony, Martinez are all fighters while Eriksen has technical quality and a wonderful personality. We look for the best and whoever comes to United must meet the highest standards”, said Ten Hag.
