Manchester United : dos au mur, Ten Hag a tranch… et gagn ! – Football


After a chaotic start to the season, Manchester United reacted beautifully on Monday in the shock against Liverpool (2-1). The strong choices of coach Erik ten Hag, who notably skipped Cristiano Ronaldo at kick-off, paid off.

Ten Hag holds his first victory with the Red Devils.

While this evening was supposed to mark the anger of the fans against the Glazer family, the discredited owners of the club, it was above all the joy which dominated Monday at the final whistle at Old Trafford.

After two worrying defeats against Brighton (1-2) and Brentford (0-4), Manchester United version Erik ten Hag has indeed won its first success of the season. Finally. And with the way, against Liverpool (2-1), in the derby of England at the end of the 3rd day of the Premier League.

Ten Hag’s strong picks

With his back to the wall, the technician did not hesitate to make strong choices at kick-off, leaving his captain Harry Maguire and his star, Cristiano Ronaldo, on the bench. A real success! Aligned in place of Maguire, Raphal Varane defended much higher and showed the example, while the attacking trio Jadon Sancho-Marcus Rashford-Anthony Elanga (then Anthony Martial in the second period) showed an exemplary face, with an important work pressing. This did not prevent the Mancunian attackers from hurting the defense of the Reds, the image of Sancho’s lucidity on the opener and the fiery legs of a found Rashford and author of the 2nd goal.

Mr. Rashford – The difference was the energy

We know that Liverpool are a very good team and that you have to press them. You have to do this as a whole, with energy. That’s why I chose Rashford, Sancho and Elanga put forward ten Hag at the microphone of Sky Sports to justify the benching of CR7, not known for his defensive withdrawal and only entered the 86th minute. Varane is a very experienced player, he has won everything and brings communication to our defense. We want mobility and agility in the back four added the Dutchman to explain Maguire’s non-start. And, after such a successful collective performance, the ex-coach of Ajax Amsterdam could only be satisfied.

I’m not going to talk about technique, it’s all about attitude. And you saw, we put (the right) attitude on the field, there was communication, combat, team spirit and you saw what they are capable of, because they are fucking good football players a gliss the Batavian. I wanted a different approach, a different attitude. This is just the beginning, we must remain humble. We can be much more dangerous, but first we have to become a team. A message received five out of five by the players, the image of Rashford, which summarized: The difference was the energy . A desire finds confirmation on Saturday against a less brilliant opponent, Southampton. With rookie Casemiro in the starting XI?
