Some Manchester United players have reportedly expressed their concern about the appointment of Erik ten Hag. As per the report in the English outlet The Times.
After sacking Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Red Devils’ hierarchy appointed Ralf Rangnick as an interim basis to steady the ship. And make a run to qualify for the Champions League. However, neither of those have happened under the German’s tenure.
Meanwhile, after finishing his time as the interim boss. Rangnick will become the consultant of the club. Erik ten Hag will become the new Manchester United manager. Following the Dutchman’s impressive work at Ajax.
PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino was in the race alongside Julian Lopetegui and Luis Enrique to become the next manager. However, the club’s hierarchy appointed the Dutchman. The Ajax boss was a favorite among the fans to become the next Red Devils boss.
However, as per the report in the English outlet. The Dutchman’s credentials have impressed a few players. But, they do not believe that the 52-year-old has a strong enough personality to take the club back to the summit.
Will Erik ten Hag be able to succeed at Manchester United?
Erik ten Hag will be joining Manchester United after great success at Ajax. The Dutchman won multiple league titles in the Netherlands capital. And he also won a few cup prizes. Most importantly he has proved himself by taking Ajax to the Champions League semi-final. Before narrowly losing to Tottenham Hotspur on away goal rule.
Therefore, Ten Hag has the winning mentality to bring success to the Old Trafford stadium. Other managers who were linked with a move to the record Premier League champions haven’t enjoyed great success in their managerial careers. Apart from Luis Enrique who has won everything with Barcelona.
It is not clear yet whether the Dutchman has the strong personality to control a dressing room full of stars. But, he has shown that he wants to be successful at Manchester United. Given he is ready to start his job at Old Trafford just after his final game with Ajax.
