Bayern Munich loanee Marcel Sabitzer hails Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag
Marcel Sabitzer, who joined Manchester United on loan from Bayern Munich in January, has hailed the Red Devils’ head coach Erik ten Hag.
The Dutch manager was appointed in the Old Trafford side’s dugout at the end of last season after the dismissal of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ralf Rangnick. Since then, the former Ajax boss has managed to steady the ship at the Manchester-based club.
Speaking via United’s official website, the Austrian expressed delight at being able to work under Ten Hag. The 29-year-old is impressed by the gaffer’s ideas and work ethic.
“The manager does a lot of work. He is a hard worker, very structured and he’s helping us a lot with his game-plans, with training.
“He’s a very good coach, tactical, and, as a guy too, we are enjoying the fact that he is our manager and are looking forward to working together and bringing trophies to Man United.”
Ten Hag made his way into management with Twente Enschede in the Netherlands, where he was the assistant. The Dutchman then got to lead a team for the first time at Go Ahead Eagles. The 53-year-old also spent time as the head coach of Bayern’s reserve team and then Utrecht before his stint with Ajax. At the Amsterdam-based club, the gaffer found a lot of success.
Ten Hag has brought his unique ideas and playing style to United. The Dutch manager has immediately found success in Manchester, lifting the Carabao Cup. It marked the Red Devils’ first trophy in six years.
We are also in a good position to finish in the top four in the Premier League. The Old Trafford side are also still alive in the FA Cup and the Europa League.
Sabitzer arrived in the previous transfer window and added depth to United’s squad. The Austrian has been important for the gaffer in the absence of Christian Eriksen and Casemiro in the middle of the park. In the current campaign, the Bayern loanee has made nine appearances in all competitions, scoring one goal.
In contrast, the 29-year-old struggled to cement his place in the Bundesliga giants’ team under Julian Nagelsmann, who has recently been sacked by them.
