Manchester United fell to a humiliating defeat on Sunday against Liverpool at home. The Red Devils were thrashed 5-0 by Liverpool and Mohamed Salah was instrumental.
Manchester United looked like a team without structure at the moment. There is no good pattern or style of play under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

There have been talks that the club could look to appoint Antonio Conte if they sack Solskjaer.

Antonio Conte is a good choice for Manchester United, but he won’t create a style of play that will last long at Manchester United. United could be right back where they started if Conte leaves after a few years.

Antonio Conte also has a history of having bad relationships with most of his previous employers, so he might not be the right man for the job.

However, there is a coach United can appoint that can transform the club, their style and pattern of play. A coach that will bring young players through to build a new core at Manchester United.


The current Ajax boss has been at the Dutch club since 2017. He has won numerous trophies at Ajax and was the manager who inspired Ajax’s famous 2019 Champions League semifinal run.

Erik Ten Hag is the right candidate to bring calm and attractive football to Manchester United. Teams that dominate nowadays tend to play progressive and structured football.

Liverpool have had to build for some years under Jurgen Klopp. Pep Guardiola has been able to get the right players he wants to play in his system. Manchester United need that type of coach too.

Eric Ten Hag is also a coach that knows how to bring young players through. The famous class of 92 formed the core of the Manchester United team that dominated for many years. Ten Hag can help bring that back to Manchester United.

Yesterday’s humbling at the hands of Liverpool should spell the end for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but Eric Ten Hag has proven that he can build a team with the players that Ajax can afford. Ten Hag will be able to do more with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Sancho, and Greenwood and Rashford.

Ten Hag could even revitalize the career of Donny Van de Beek at Manchester United. The Dutch midfielder impressed under Ten Hag at Ajax.
