Erik ten Hag following in Alex Ferguson’s footsteps at Manchester United
A few first-team and under-21 players returned for pre-season on Monday, and Ten Hag oversaw his first United training session. Around eight in the morning, the Dutchman arrived at the AON training facility not long after assistant manager Steve McClaren.
Players could arrive an hour later, at 10 am, under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, whose management style has been characterised as “soft.” It was noted early on that the Norwegian did not use the manager’s parking place as a mark of respect for veteran manager Ferguson.
In an effort to repair the damaged dressing room, Ten Hag has made it mandatory for players to eat and socialise after training sessions. Building team spirit is key, fostering a feeling of togetherness amongst the roster.
The Dutchman has turned Ajax into a successful team in recent years without changing their playing approach. The seasoned coach has played a key role in the national and international success of the Dutch squad.
The record of the Dutch manager, who has led de Godenzonen to 159 victories in 215 games, demonstrates his prowess. The 51-year-old manager also led de Joden to three Eredivisie championships.
The Dutch coach is renowned for playing attacking, and entertaining football. With young players, he guided the Ajax club to the 2019 Champions League Semifinal. The seasoned coach has the talent to get the best performance out of his team.
