Aaron Wan-Bissaka credits Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag for improvement
Manchester United defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka has credited Erik ten Hag for making him a better player since the gaffer’s arrival last summer.
The Dutch manager was appointed in the Old Trafford side’s dugout after he left Ajax Amsterdam. Initially, the former Crystal Palace star found life difficult under the head coach but slowly managed to get back into the Red Devils’ starting lineup.
“It’s been good, especially for myself. I’ve learned a lot under him. And there’s more to come, more improvement to be done. Since I’ve been under him, the manager has taught me a lot and you just want to improve more and keep learning more, especially from someone like him. So I’ve enjoyed that.”
United signed the English national in the summer of 2019 from Palace. Subsequently, the defender was a key player under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and an ever-present part of the lineup.
However, with the Norwegian manager’s departure, the 25-year-old’s fortunes changed. He was pipped by Diogo Dalot in the pecking order. The Portugal international kept his place in the team at the start of the former Ajax head coach’s stint at the Old Trafford side.
But with the former FC Porto star returning to Manchester with injury from the prestigious tournament, the former Palace star got regular opportunities and took them with both hands.
By the end of the previous campaign, Wan-Bissaka was the first choice for the gaffer on the right-hand side of the defence. The defender also started and gave an assist in our 1-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers in the first game of the new season.
