Erik ten Hag has a new nickname because he has impressed the staff at Man United, even though he has only been in charge of the club for two weeks.
At the end of April, Man United appointed Ten Hag as head coach under a contract until 2025. As soon as the Eredivisie ended, the Dutch tactician went to England.
Ten Hag got to work, getting detailed reports on all available players and reviewing a transfer list, including Chelsea star Mason Mount.
According to Goal, Ten Hag has impressed everyone, from the smallest things.
Nearly two weeks later, the 52-year-old coach has been nicknamed the “new sheriff”. Although Man United have not brought in any new recruits, the club has said goodbye to players whose contracts are out: Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard, Lee Grant, Paul Pogba, Edinson Cavani and Nemanja Matic. Thanks to that, Man United also saves wages.
Ten Hag is trying to convince Frenkie de Jong to come to Old Trafford. Barcelona are ready to sell him. However, De Jong does not want to go to Old Trafford because the Red Devils cannot attend the Champions League 2022/23. If he stays at Barcelona, De Jong will be forced to reduce his salary by 50%.
Coach Ten Hag is still looking for a house in Manchester. He has been living temporarily in a hotel since arriving in the UK.
Now, Ten Hag is going on vacation. He will be back before June 27 for training. The Red Devils will play their first match under Ten Hag’s reign on July 12.
At that time, Man United will play a friendly match with Liverpool at Rajamangala National Stadium (Bangkok), Thailand.
