Man United FC specific demand in style of play after Erik ten Hag explained playing style in job interview
United want their next manager to ‘imbue the club with a strong playing identity’, according to reports.
Erik ten Hag is now their No 1 target despite Mauricio Pochettino, Julen Lopetegui and Luis Enrique all being linked.
Man United FC didn’t expect to be looking for another manager so soon after giving Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a three-year extension back in the summer.
However, the Red Devils are now back to square one after experiencing a nightmare campaign so far – with their hopes of winning the Premier League, Champions League, Carabao Cup, and FA Cup already over.
Ten Hag is now leading the charge to become the next manager of United having impressed throughout his five years at Ajax.
According to The Times, the Red Devils want their next manager to have a clear playing style – something they’ve lacked in the years since Sir Alex Ferguson walked away in 2013.
Louis van Gaal was perhaps the only exception though the Dutchman’s possession-based game didn’t meet expectations, with goals hard to come by.
The publication says that Ten Hag, during his job interview, explained the style that he’d hope to implement over at Old Trafford.
