New Manchester United coach Erik Ten Hag has a hard time against the bad apples in the dressing room.
Manchester United suffers from the influence of English players who control the dressing room and infiltrate the English press to publish what they want.
It won’t be an easy task for Tin Hag to get these people under control, especially since he hasn’t dealt with them yet.
The reaction came from his former Ajax player Danny Blind, who described the new manager of Manchester United as a “control freak”.
And support his compatriot to bring success back to the club if given the time and resources to impose his own style.
Blind, who played 4 seasons at United before moving to Ajax in 2018, won 3 Eredivisie titles and 2 domestic cups under Ten Hag.
“He’s very social,” the 32-year-old told United’s website about his former coach. At Ajax he knew that everyone at the club was important, everyone had to be involved to win.
He added: “He’s very aware of what he wants, he also wants to keep everything close to him, he’s also obsessed with control and wants to be on top of everything, I think that’s a special advantage you have to have as you’re so skilled.”
Blind said United have not won a title since the Europa League in 2017 and while it would be important to win trophies back to Ten Hag, he must first establish a clear style of play.
Ten Hag took over at Old Trafford after a mediocre season under interim coach Ralf Rangnick, as the team finished sixth in the league and failed to qualify for the Champions League.
