Bryan Robson believes Erik ten Hag and his adherence to discipline mirrors that of Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United
Erik ten Hag has been receiving praise for how he managed himself in his first six months in charge of Manchester United, having replaced interim manager Ralf Rangnick over the summer.
Player accounts, staff and pundits have all been impressed with the manner in which he has established discipline, confidence and tenacity in a side which looked devoid of confidence and guidance in the previous season.
United legend Bryan Robson, while speaking to the Mirror, is the latest entry to praise the gaffer and has compared the Dutchman’s adherence to discipline similar to the time under Sir Alex Ferguson.
“Myself, Denis Irwin and Andy Cole (fellow ambassadors) went to all the training sessions so we chatted to the manager and his staff. I think he will do a really good job for Manchester United, He keeps his feet on the ground and talks a lot of sense. His training sessions were really good. He puts in place exactly what he wants. If the players are a little bit indisciplined off the pitch he soon cracks down on them.“
The team under Ten Hag has shown signs of major improvement since the embarrassing start to the season and the players have become more used to the demands and high standards set by the manager.
With the manner in which the gaffer handled the Cristiano Ronaldo situation, it was very impressive to make a statement about the manner in which he was against one of the legends of the game.
Although he has been on the receiving end of a lot of flak from former players for the manner in which the situation became so entangled, it sends the right message to the entire squad that no player is above the club and there will be consequences of any ill-action.
After a long time of going through different managers to reclaim the achievements made by Sir Alex Ferguson, it finally seems like we have a manager who is capable of bringing the good times back to the club.
