Gary Neville praised Erik ten Hag for performing an “unbelievable” job at Manchester United to restore team spirit after so many years of problems in the dressing room. United are now a point behind second-placed Manchester City after defeating them on Saturday lunchtime and claiming their sixth consecutive league victory.
Gary Neville mesmerised by Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United
They accomplished it, although the absence of two of their regular first-choice back four and Wout Weghorst did not sign in time to play. Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville discussed the change Ten Hag has accomplished at Old Trafford since his appointment last summer on the Gary Neville Podcast.
“Erik ten Hag is doing an unbelievable job there. He’s still got a team that looks, on paper, well below what it needs to be. But he’s extracted everything he needs from them.
“Casemiro in midfield, big signing. It was a really good decision from Ten Hag to put Fred in [against City]. That United midfield at the Etihad earlier in the season was McTominay, Eriksen and Fernandes, putting another solid blocking player in with Fred was a masterstroke.
