Manchester United has refused Mauricio Pochettino is reportedly revealed by the Red Devils confirming the appointment of Erik Ten Hag. The Premier League club conducted the final round of the interview this week. Meanwhile, they seem to have ended up with Ajax head coach Ten Hag.
The Red Devils are said to have decided to appoint Ajax Amsterdam manager Erik Ten Hag to replace Ralf Rangnick, whose term in provisional position expires at the end of the season.
Another reason Red Devil chose Ten Hag over Pochettino is said to be that he wasn’t confident in paying a large amount of compensation to the French team. Pochettino’s record in France is a deterrent to Old Trafford’s outfit, as last season’s Le Parisien only won the Ligue 1 title for the second time in seven years.
Ten Hag developing young players and chances of United
Ten Hag’s work in the Netherlands always draws attention here. He also has his connection with Pep Guardiola.
The two met when they joined Bayern Munich in 2013. Meanwhile, Guardiola is the first team coach and Ten Hag is the reserve coach.
The Dutch share the philosophy that Manchester City coaches attack football. He also fields in the 433 formations and likes it when his team dominates the game.
“I learned a lot from Guardiola,” said former FC Utrecht and Go Ahead Eagles coaches.
His philosophy is sensational. What he did in Barcelona, Bayern, and now in the city, this aggressive style gives him many victories.
Meanwhile, Ten Hag put his mark in Amsterdam by building a young team from scratch. He brought the team to the 2019 Champions League semi-finals. This is a streak that ended with a tragic loss against Tottenham.
