Dutch football journalist, Marcel van der Kraan has come out to explain how Erik Ten Hag will want his defensive setup to be at MUFC. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, Jurrein Timber will be a really important player for Erik ten Hag because he can change the build-up from the back and he has the experience of working with the manager recently.
Marcel added that Ten Hag will never play with two Harry Maguires because he always wants to have a real footballing player in central defence to start the build-up of his team.
His words, “Jurrein Timber will be a really important player for Erik ten Hag becasue he can change the build-up from the back. He can change the style.”
“If you look at when Rio Ferdinand joined, he was a footballing central defender. Ten Hag will never play with two Harry Maguires. He will want to have a real footballing player in central defence to start the build-up.”
“Ten Hag will want to play on the half of the opponent, just like Pep Guardiola. He’s a massive fan of Pep. I would almost think that there will be two teams with the same playing style in Manchester next season.”
