With new Red Devils coach Erik ten Hag due to take over from Ralf Rangnick at Old Trafford, Harry Maguire believes the team will improve quickly.
As he prepares to take over from Ralf Rangnick, Manchester United captain Harry Maguire forecasts Erik ten Hag will have an instant good influence.
With the 2021/22 season ending in tragedy, there is optimism that ten Hag will be the man to maybe return the Red Devils to their previous glory.
It was their lowest Premier League point total in club history, and a push for a place in the Champions League never materialized in the remaining months of Rangnick’s stay.
Following the dismal temporary stint of Rangnick, the Dutchman is already hard at work at Old Trafford as the club’s permanent manager.
After leading the club to their worst-ever Premier League season in terms of points and failing to bring them back into the Champions League, the former RB Leipzig head coach was unable to motivate the Red Devils.
Erik ten Hag is expected to implement a number of basic ideas at Old Trafford in order to get the team back on track for the next season.
According to a source close to the Dutchman, he desires high-intensity, offensive football with a constant press, according to The Times.
Meanwhile, the German’s techniques have been criticized, with several players claiming that his training sessions were not up to par, affecting their attitude on the training field.
However, once the players return for pre-season preparations following the summer break, Maguire expects a better picture at Carrington.
He remarked on the club’s official website: “I’m sure on the first day of pre-season, everybody will be buzzing about, doing their best to impress and get back in condition. We’ve got a tremendous season ahead of us.
We realize we have to improve since last season was far from satisfactory. The new manager will add great energy to the team, which the players will embrace.”
While the players are clearly upbeat, ten Hag has already expressed his enthusiasm for the task ahead at Old Trafford, having left Ajax early to devote his whole attention to the Red Devils.
“The confidence is that I have a good feeling with the people around me.” the Dutchman remarked in his first news conference.
“The meetings have given me a positive vibe. We have a plan, and now it’s just a matter of putting it into action.
We will achieve the results we desire if we cooperate, stick to our strategy, and surround ourselves with good individuals who have the proper connections and dedication.
Our plan is massive, and we only have a limited amount of time to discuss it now. Of course, we’ll start with the staff and then go on to the players, and you’ll see what happens.”
While ten Hag is yet to attend his first training session as Manchester United manager, it looks like his predecessor, Rangnick, is already receiving accolades despite his lackluster performance at Old Trafford.
Christoph Baumgartner has previously praised His training sessions since he was appointed head coach of the Austrian national team.
“Most recently, he has trained one of the world’s largest clubs.” he stated.
“Even off the pitch, you observed how professional, organized, and clear the notion is — what works and what doesn’t.
It’s quite thrilling, and each of us could feel that something wonderful was on the horizon.”
