‘0 out of 10.’
Manchester United manager Eric ten Haag has given the club his worst assessment of player signings. After Alex Ferguson resigned, he invested 1 billion pounds, or about 1.5 trillion won, but the results were not very good. It is pointed out that most of the recruitment was only average.
England’s The Sun reported on the 8th that Ten Haag had attacked the club for its transfer policy. After Ten Hag took over as manager of Manchester United last summer, he diagnosed that he was trying to awaken United’s own culture that was dormant.
As for the reason he pointed out that the club spent ‘a waste of money’ in the transfer market, it was because most of the players had already been recruited in a state of great success.
What Ten Hagh diagnosed was that after Sir Ferguson stepped down, he invested 1 billion pounds, but the results were not good.
He did not mention the real names of the past players. However, the media predicted that Angel Di María, Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba would be included.
Perhaps that is why Ten Haag is said to be making great efforts not to make such mistakes when signing players in the transfer market.
“The club has signed an unimaginable number of players who haven’t been good enough in recent years,” said Ten Haag.
He mentioned the symbolism of Manchester United. He said, “The moment you put on the United uniform, the weight is enormous. Only real people who can play under great pressure can play here.”
“Tyrell Malacia, Lisandro Martinez, Casemiro and Anthony are all fighters and Christian Eriksen is a technical winner and a great personality,” he said. “We want the best of the best. Every player we sign must meet the highest standards.”
“There was no dynamism at United,” said Ten Haag, who took over the baton last summer. After diagnosing that his mental resilience was very low, “I saw it as an outsider and noticed it within the first week of my appointment. I looked at the culture of the club,” he confessed.
He then diagnosed, “When Sir Ferguson was there, his team was outstanding in terms of symbiosis, collectiveness and spirit.” 토토사이트
“Manchester United has always had top strikers like Cantona, Cole, Sheringham, York, Van Nistelrooy and Van Persie. Midfield is full of strategists. Here, great footballers and personalities such as Keane, Boss, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and David Beckham played,” he emphasized.
This is the culture and tradition of Manchester United, Ten Haag thinks. But now, it is said, the spirits of the players are fragile and vulnerable.
So when Ten Haag signs players, he looks at their quality and skills. He emphasized that he focuses on their mental strength here.
