5 Interesting Things From Manchester United’s First Training Session Erik ten Hag: Full of Smiles!

Era Erik ten Hag
Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag

 Manchester United started their 2022/23 pre-season preparation period on Monday (27/6/2022). There are a number of interesting things from this inaugural training session in the Erik ten Hag era .

After Ralf Rangnick’s duties as interim manager were completed, Manchester United has now begun to be managed by Ten Hag, who has been appointed to fill the manager’s post since last April.

Recently, Manchester United has also officially appointed two figures to become Ten Hag’s assistants. The two names are Steve McClaren and Mitchell van der Gaag.

Practically, this inaugural training session feels special for the Manchester United squad who are trying to get up in the new season following their poor achievements last season.

Quoting the Manchester Evening News , here are a number of interesting things that can be seen from the inaugural Manchester United training session of the Erik ten Hag era.

Introductory Session

Introductory Session

For the majority of the Manchester United squad, this is the first time they have met the coaching staff. The introductory session became very crucial in this inaugural practice.

According to internal sources, the introductory session of Ten Hag and his assistants lasted for several minutes. However, what they say is still a secret.

Of course, Ten Hag tried from the start to try to embrace all players without exception. This is very important for Manchester United’s pre-season journey going forward.

Steve McClaren’s Engagement

It was not only Ten Hag who attended this inaugural session. Steve McClaren the assistant was also seen actively leading the players’ training sessions when playing the ball.

For McClaren, working with the Ten Hag was nothing new. The two have collaborated at Twente and presented the Eredivisie title in the 2009/10 season.

In addition, this is also not the first time McClaren has served as assistant manager at Manchester United. He was Sir Alex Ferguson’s accomplice from 1999 to 2001.

The poor achievement of Manchester United’s 2021/22 season yesterday made the players return to Carrington with quite heavy pressure, namely to be able to get up in the new season.

However, Manchester United players such as Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Alvaro Fernandez, Anthony Martial, Jadon Sancho, to Alejandro Garnacho still look cheerful and full of smiles.

The players seem to bring a new spirit for a new era. Ten Hag himself hopes that this smile will be a positive sign to navigate the new season.

Youth Engagement

Alexander Grenache

Erik ten Hag is known as a coach who likes to give opportunities to young players. It was very visible when he handled Ajax.

This was also seen in Ten Hag’s inaugural training session with the Manchester United squad. A number of young stars of the Red Devils looked enthusiastic following the training session.

For the first time, there are Alejandro Garnacho, Matej Kovar, Nathan Bishop, Ethan Laird, Bjorn Hardley, Will Fish and Fernandez, Charlie Savage, Zidane Iqbal, Charlie Wellens and Ethan Galbraith, Tahith Chong, Shola Shoretire, Hingga Noam Emeran.

New Numbers

Manchester United

In the new season there are usually players who have new jersey numbers. In the Manchester United squad this time, it happened to left-back Alvaro Fernandez.

Last season, Fernandez wore number 74 in the Manchester United main squad. From now on, the 19-year-old left-back will get the number 42.

This means that Fernandez could be getting a bigger share in the Manchester United main squad for this new season.

Premier League giants, Manchester United may be signing Neymar from PSG if their star, Cristiano Ronaldo leaves in the summer of 2022.

As previously reported, it is claimed that Ronaldo is considering leaving because he is worried about the slow movement of Manchester United in the transfer window. Until now, the Red Devils have not recruited players at all.

A number of top European clubs began to be linked with Ronaldo. These clubs are Bayern Munich, Chelsea, AS Roma, to Sporting Lisbon.

Meanwhile, RMC Sport claims that Neymar is angry with PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaii because he feels he has been scapegoated for Les Parisien’s failure in the Champions League.

PSG also reportedly opened up the opportunity to sell Neymar this summer. Unfortunately, the high price tag and high salary make very few clubs able to sign Neymar.

On the other hand, Neymar, who is already annoyed with PSG, is reportedly ready to leave the French capital and have a career at a new club.

Neymar replace Cristiano Ronaldo?

RMC said that of the few clubs that could sign Neymar, there was the name Manchester United. RMC also claims United may move closer to Neymar if Ronaldo leaves.

Despite all these rumors, Manchester United themselves reportedly confirmed that they had no plans to sell Ronaldo.

Although the summer transfer market is still long, until now there has been no talk in the Manchester United camp regarding the possibility of selling Ronaldo.

Both Manchester United and the new manager, Erik ten Hag both still want Ronaldo to stay at Old Trafford and be part of their team next season.

8 Players Who Immediately Flopped After Coming to the…

The Premier League can offer many things for football players. The highest competition in Queen Elizabeth’s country could be a golden opportunity for gridiron actors to become stars.

However, the Premier League, which is claimed to be the most intense competition in the world, can also be a graveyard for anyone who is unprepared and unfit.

Many star players who failed in the Premier League. Including these eight players, the Daily Star version.

They failed to shine in the Premier League, even just dropping by a season and then going to find their luck elsewhere.

Angel Di Maria

Angel Di Maria was even traumatized by Manchester United. Di Maria had a difficult time in Manchester in 2014 after not having a good relationship with Louis van Gaal.

“My problem at Manchester was the coach. Van Gaal was the worst in my career,” he said.

Di Maria made 33 appearances that season but still contributed 12 assists and four goals.

Afonso Alves

The Brazilian arrived at Middlesbrough with an extraordinary reputation, having scored 45 goals in 39 games for Dutch side Heerenveen. But he flops the following season.

In 31 appearances for Middlesbrough in the 2008/2009 Premier League, he only scored four goals and made three assists.

Massimo Taibi

Replacing Peter Schmeichel will never be an easy task for any goalkeeper. Taibi was far from the mark when he signed for United.

The Italian cost him £4.5m, but even that seemed overpriced after several appearances, including a horror display against Southampton and a 5-0 loss to Chelsea.

Jean-Alain Boumsong

Newcastle paid 8.5 million euros to re-sign the centre-back from Rangers in 2005. But, it failed.

One of his most phenomenal mistakes was against Liverpool where he failed to make the most basic clearance before tackling Peter Crouch. After 41 appearances for the Magpies, he somehow managed to secure a move to Italian giants Juventus.

Per Kroldrup

Everton spent £5 million to bring the centre-back to Goodison Park. After four years at Udinese, his career on Merseyside is definitely one to forget.

The Dane has only made one appearance for the Toffees, having picked up a groin injury before the ball was even kicked. He missed the first few months of the 2005/2006 season.

Sean Dundee

Dundee has scored just three goals in the German league for Karlsruher SC. However, that did not stop Liverpool from signing him in 1998 for £2 million.

He only managed to make three appearances as a substitute towards the end of the season, and was one of the worst players to ever wear the Reds jersey.

Mateja Kezman

Kezman impressed in the Dutch League by scoring 105 goals in 122 games for PSV.

But Kezman’s career with Chelsea in the Premier League did not go smoothly, he was only able to score seven goals in 40 appearances.

Bebe

Bebe
Bebe

Manchester United have a habit of recruiting talented young players and turning them into stars.

But sadly they misfired when they signed Bebe in 2010. The Portuguese winger arrived with a lot of hype following him, but his debut season at the club was shaky. He only scored two goals in seven appearances in all competitions.

During his four years at Old Trafford, he was loaned out to Besiktas, Rio Ave and Pacos de Ferreira before leaving for Benfica without playing for the Red Devils again.

10 Most Expensive Midfielders Purchased by Manchester United
Barcelona midfielder Frenkie De Jong

 Manchester United are reportedly chasing the signature of Frenkie De Jong . This transfer has the potential to be one of the most expensive transfers this summer.

Since being appointed as Manchester United manager, Erik Ten Hag has asked the Red Devils management to bring in De Jong. The Barcelona midfielder is considered a key player so that United can play the game scheme desired by the manager.

But so far this transfer process is quite tough. Barcelona reportedly want a transfer fee of around 85 million euros for the midfielder’s transfer this summer.

If this transfer becomes a reality, De Jong will enter the list of the 10 most expensive transfers for Manchester United. Including the list of the most expensive midfielders bought by the Red Devils.

In their history, United had brought in a number of midfielders with expensive price tags. But most of them even flop at MU.

Marouane Fellaini

Marouane Fellaini

Marouane Fellaini is in the top 10 most expensive midfielders for Manchester United. The frizzy-haired midfielder was David Moyes’ only signing in the summer of 2013 for 32.4 million euros from Everton.

Fellaini strengthened MU for quite a long time. He made 177 appearances for the Red Devils, contributing 22 goals and 12 assists.

This figure is worse than his record at Everton, where he also appeared 177 times for the Toffees and scored 33 goals and 26 assists.

Morgan Schneiderlin

Morgan Schneiderlin
Morgan Schneiderlin is with Louis van Gaal

In the ranking of the nine most expensive midfielders Manchester United have ever bought is Morgan Schneiderlin. He was recruited from Southampton by Louis van Gaal for 35 million Euros.

Together with MU, the French national team player became a patient. He only dropped as much as 47 times in five years defending MU.

He also only scored one goal and one assist while defending MU. So he was released to Everton.

Ander Herrera

Ander Herrera
Ander Herrera

In the ranking of the eight most expensive midfielders ever bought MU is Ander Herrera. He joined the Red Devils in 2015 from Athletic Bilbao.

Throughout defending MU, Herrera can be said to be one of the favorite players of the Red Devils fans. Because he has great passion and always appears adamant throughout the game.

While defending MU, he was down in 189 total matches. He scored 20 goals and 27 assists for the Red Devils, which is quite a good record when compared to when he was at Bilbao, where he only scored 11 goals and 19 assists.

Donny van de Beek

Donny van de Beek
Donny van de Beek

In the seventh place, the most expensive midfielder signed by Manchester United is Donny van de Beek. The midfielder was brought in by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer from Ajax Amsterdam in 2020.

Two seasons with the Red Devils, Van de Beek is difficult to bring out the best. He still struggles to adapt to the rhythm of the game in England, so he sits mostly on the bench.

But the midfielder is determined to improve his career at Old Trafford next season, as Erik Ten Hag projects him to play in the United first team.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan

Henrikh Mkhitaryan
Henrikh Mkhitaryan

Henrikh Mkhitaryan is in the sixth place for MU’s most expensive midfielder. He was recruited from Borussia Dortmund with a dowry of 42 million Euros.

In his first season with Manchester United, the player performed brilliantly. He helped United win the Europa League trophy in the 2016/17 season.

But in the second season his performance declined, and finally he was used by Jose Mourinho to barter with Alexis Sanchez.

Juan Sebastian Veron

Juan Sebastian Veron
Juan Sebastian Veron

In 2003, Sir Alex Ferguson made a big surprise in the transfer market. He signed one of the best midfielders in Serie A at the time, namely Juan Sebastian Veron from Lazio for a ransom of 42.6 million Euros.

Veron’s performance is actually not too bad. He scored a total of 11 goals and 14 assists from 80 appearances for the Red Devils, but that performance was considered a failure given the very expensive transfer fee at the time.

As a result, he was released by Manchester United after two seasons with Chelsea. Where the performance is also not encouraging.

Nemanja Matic

Nemanja Matic
Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic

Nemanja Matic is the fourth most expensive midfielder for Manchester United. He was bought by Jose Mourinho from Chelsea in 2017 for 44.7 million Euros.

In his inaugural season, he performed poorly where he played in almost all the matches played by the Red Devils. However, his performance began to be disrupted by injury after that.

He was mostly on the bench in the Solskjaer era, and he only returned to play in the United first team at the end of the Ralf Rangnick era.

Fred

Manchester United midfielder Fred

Nemanja Matic is not the only expensive midfielder that Jose Mourinho has bought. At the start of the 2019/20 season, Manchester United signed Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk.

When defending the Ukrainian club, Fred did show a brilliant performance. But at MU, he underwent a slow adaptation, and his performance was not optimal because his position was shifted further back.

It was only at the time of Solskjaer that he showed a pretty good performance and got appreciation from the MU fans, even though his appearance was actually still fanciful.

Bruno Fernandes

Bruno Fernandes
Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes

Bruno Fernandes is the second most expensive midfielder ever signed by Manchester United. He was recruited from Sporting Lisbon for a ransom of 63 million Euros.

If you look at the other names on this list, Bruno can be said to be the best midfielder signed by Manchester United. His performance is commensurate with the price that must be paid MU.

He was the best MU player for two seasons, the choice of fans and players. He recorded 50 goals and 39 assists from a total of 126 appearances for the Red Devils.

Unfortunately his performance last season began to decline. So MU fans hope that Fernandes can rise again in the Ten Hag era later.

Paul Pogba

Paul Pogba
Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba

In 2016, Manchester United broke the world transfer record. They paid 100 million Euros to Juventus to bring back Paul Pogba.

This transfer can be said to be an irony. Because in 2012 Manchester United released Pogba to Juventus as a free agent and they had to pay a very high price to send him home.

MU’s grief is increasing because Pogba can be said to be a ‘bogus investment’ for them. For six years defending MU, the midfielder was difficult to play consistently.

He left Manchester United this summer as a free agent again, and has been linked with a return to Juventus. He also had time to look for trouble by throwing scathing comments to MU in his dokuemter film.

Manchester City formalize the transfer of Erling Haaland

Erling Haaland is one of the most talked about names when the 2021/2022 season is over. The Norwegian player has become one of the hottest assets, which has become a bone of contention for a number of top European clubs.

Manchester City are the lucky club to get Haaland’s signature. They only had to spend 75 million euros to woo Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.

Not only were they lucky to get Haaland, City managed to get Haaland at a much lower dowry than the official price. Haaland’s own tag is estimated at 150 million euros.

Haaland’s official price shows the performance of the 21-year-old player. This price tag also makes Haaland one of the most expensive U-23 players in the world.

Besides Haaland, there are a number of other U-23 players who also have exorbitant prices.

Who are the most expensive U-23 footballers in the world today? Here are ten of them.

Erik Ten Hag

Before the match as Manchester United manager , Erik ten Hag was immediately in a bad scenario. Because, some of the players who became Ten Hag’s transfer targets refused to move to United.

After a very difficult 2021/2022 season, United welcomes a new period with Ten Hag in the 2022/2023 season. They hope to start a big project towards the era of glory.

United have a commitment to support Ten Hag’s plans in the transfer market. The Red Devils did not buy players in January 2022. So, they have big financial support to spend on players at the beginning of the 2022/2023 season.

However, United’s transfer market did not go according to Ten Hag’s expectations. Attempts to build a squad that fit the plan are in tatters. Ten Hag shooting players are reluctant to move closer to Old Trafford.

Which players have refused to move to United at the start of the 2022/2023 season?

However, Louis van Gaal messed up United’s plans. The former United manager gave Timber a warning. Van Gaal asked Timber to play regularly and consistently if he wanted to be brought to the 2022 World Cup. Timber then abandoned the opportunity to move to United.

Darwin Nunez is part of United’s long-term plans. Ten Hag realized that Cristiano Ronaldo was unreliable for long and had to bring a top striker to United.

Nunez is the first choice. United are not passive on Nunez’s transfer. United made quite intense contact with the agent of the Uruguayan.

However, Nunez determines the control of his future. Nunez just wanted to move to Liverpool. The 22-year-old striker was finally bought by the Reds for a maximum transfer value of 100 million euros including bonuses.

Frenkie de Jong

De Jong was identified as the Ten Hag’s main target. They had a good collaboration at Ajax with the Eredivisie title and qualifying for the Champions League semifinals.

Barcelona opened up the opportunity to release De Jong for economic reasons. United have made a 60 million euro offer on Barcelona. However, the Catalan club asked United to increase their offer to 80 million euros.

De Jong is more likely to stay at Barcelona. For him, Barcelona is a dream club since childhood. “I am at the biggest club in the world at the moment and I feel fine there, so there is no news,” said De Jong.

Christian Eriksen

Ten Hag sees the midfield as a point that needs to be addressed. So, apart from De Jong, Ten Hag wants Eriksen to come to Old Trafford. Ten Hag knows Eriksen well having trained at Ajax.

Eriksen’s contract with Brentford expires in June 2022. The club has submitted a new contract offer, but Eriksen has not responded.

Ten Hag has asked Eriksen to join United. However, Eriksen tends to choose Tottenham. Eriksen has a strong emotional bond with Tottenham. In addition, the Antonio Conte factor also made him closer to Tottenham.
