Changing style after a season of despair
Ensuring minimum quality to realize the ideal of Ten Hag
・Last season Manchester United were in turmoil. With the end of the Solskjær regime and the arrival of the Rangnick system, it was thought that the team would accelerate its transformation into a Red Bull, but in the end that was also abandoned. It was a season of despair with no titles or growth.
・The only hope was the appointment of Ten Hag, who prefers attacking football, but unlike the conventional counter-centered football, the manager prefers possession football, making it difficult to change the strength of the team. Although the low-intensity pre-season match worked to some extent, when the Premier League started, they lost two games in a row. Especially in the match against Brentford, it was a difficult start to suffer a crushing defeat of 0-4.
・But there are also positive elements. Under the new manager, Martial and other players are showing signs of recovery, and new talents Eriksen and Malacia fit right in with the team. Above all, in the match against Liverpool, which was the big game after two consecutive losses, manager Ten Hag splendidly turned the team’s backward-looking mentality back on and won 2-1. The new director showed off his high management ability.
・In addition, after the Liverpool game, world-class anchor Casemiro was acquired just before the closing of the transfer window, and Antony, the Brazilian representative dribbler with overwhelming breakthrough and retention power, was acquired for a total of 150 million pounds. His strength is steadily growing. In addition, Cristiano Ronaldo, who was close to leaving, was finally decided to stay. If you can make effective use of a different dimension scorer, you should be able to see the top 4.
