Barring an incredible upset, current Ajax Amsterdam manager Erik ten Hag will be on the Manchester United bench next season. And given his style of play, the Dutch technician wouldn’t want to rely on Cristiano Ronaldo.
Cristiano Ronaldo faces a complicated return to MU.
Manchester United has been looking for a coach for the coming season for several months. Currently on the Red Devils bench, interim Ralf Rangnick should give way to Erik ten Hag.
The Ajax Amsterdam manager, who is said to be the big favorite for the position, would have reached a verbal agreement with the Red Devils leaders on a future 4-year contract.
Ronaldo missing from ten Hags plans…
The 52-year-old technician, appreciated for his very attacking style of play with the Dutch formation, intends to win MU by imposing his ideas. Thus, the native of Haaksbergen has already announced the color during talks with the leaders of Mancunia: he does not want to rely on striker Cristiano Ronaldo, author of 18 goals in 33 games in all competitions, this season, according to information from the Daily Star on Friday.
Despite his honorable stats, the Portugal international has had a complicated return to Manchester since last summer due to his weak influence within an unsuccessful collective. ten Hag thinks the 37-year-old star’s vision doesn’t match his attacking philosophy at all. A delicate file to manage for the management of the current 7th place in the Premier League.
A complex case
Why ? Because if that news is confirmed, CR7, who is signed until June 2023 (plus an optional extra year), won’t be easy to reschedule during the transfer window. With his impressive salary, the ex-Madrid embodies an accessible player for only a few European clubs. And with the years weighing on the Funchal native, executives will inevitably be asking questions about the need for an XXL investment for his services. At the same time, we also need to see if the Lusitanian wants to leave now. With the likely absence of the Champions League clash with United, Ronaldo could be open to an exit if ten Hag actually shows him the door. A future soap opera to follow this t?
