Erik Ten Hag (Manchester United): “A lot of things to improve in our game”

Erik ten Hag (Manchester United coach, winner of West Ham 1-0 on Sunday): “Pep Guardiola paid us a nice compliment (he said Manchester United are back), but I also see that there are still a lot of things to improve in our game. And we have to do that if we want to fight for the top four places, we have to improve. For example, in the first half, I think we should have controlled the ball more to put ourselves in a better position between the lines.

When you see the second half, it’s clear that we were, I think, quite poor in possession. There was a lot of space on the pitch and we gave the ball away too easily. (There have been) lots of bad decisions. We headed for the goal instead of keeping the ball, when you have to control.

When you have that many spaces, you have to score that second goal to make the game easier. But I think it’s also a necessary quality for a team to know how to protect its surface and resist an opponent who comes looking for an equalizer. It’s definitely a quality. So there are positives, but there are also a lot of negatives in our game and we have to see that. We will analyze all of this and work on it. »
