The saga of selecting a new Manchester United coach has yet to see a bright spot. The name of Erik ten Hag, who is predicted to be the new skipper has also not received an official offer.
In fact, he has conducted interviews with top officials of the Red Devils. The Glazers have also liked the Dutch men’s vision and mission.
However, their superstars have a different choice regarding the selection of a new coach. According to the Mirror, Ronaldo prefers the figure of Luis Enrique to be his new coach.
Investigate a calibaration, he once said that during the interim coach election in November last year. However, at that time John Murtough made his choice on Ralf Rangnick.
The opportunity to realize Ronaldo’s wish is also still open, considering that United’s management is still conducting interviews with several candidates other than Ten Hag.
Apart from Mauricio Pochettino, Manchester United are ready to hold an interview with the current Sevilla coach, namely Julen Lopetegui.
For Luis Enrique’s problem, Manchester United will have problems. As is known, Enrique still serves as the architect of the Spanish national team.
With Spain qualifying for the 2022 World Cup, Luis Enrique will automatically stay until at least next year.
This certainly raises problems for the Red Devils, because the management target must bring in a new coach, before this season ends.
All possibilities are still subject to change and it is worth waiting for, whether Cristiano Ronaldo’s choice will be considered by the Red Devils’ management.
Manchester United is Serious about improving
Several mismanagement since Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure have occurred. Starting from the appointment of a coach who did not succeed.
In addition, the appointment of several strategic positions of the club and making some decisions looks unusual, especially with regard to the purchase of players.
Manchester United always buys players at a higher price than it should, but it’s also always less successful to negotiate player salaries.
Purchases of players who seem reckless, without seeing the needs of the team have also been made several times. Now, management is starting to get serious about changing the club’s chaotic situation.
The first step is to bring in several important figures, John Murtough, is an example of seriousness to improve.
John Murtogh served as director of football, he was promoted after previously working as head of football development.
In addition, Manchester United also changed the club’s CEO. Richard Arnold officially replaced Ed Woodward in February 2022.
With the presence of John Murtough, making the selection of trainers also seem more careful. He did not immediately offer a contract to Erik ten Hag despite being the favorite candidate.
He and the Red Devils officials, are still waiting for the results of interviews from other candidates. The figure of Ralf Rangnick will also help the club in terms of purchasing players later
Manchester United have also prepared four transfer targets from various positions, starting from striker, central midfielder, defensive midfielder and one right winger, as Sancho will be shifted to the left.
Erik ten Hag still has to wait
English Premier League club Manchester United are reportedly in danger of losing Erik ten Hag, who is one of the leading candidates to become their permanent manager next season.
The slow decision-making of the Premier League giants has made the Dutch tactician perhaps more interested in other clubs.
British freelance journalist Jonathan Shrager has announced that United are not alone in the hunt for Ten Hag’s signature.
The success of the bald-headed man with Ajax Amsterdam for the last five years makes it very natural to have many fans.
Leaks from Shrager state that there is one club each from England, apart from Manchester United, and Germany who are now pursuing Erik ten Hag.
