Things are slowly but surely improving for Manchester United. After all, the club is fourth in the Premier League, which would equate to a ticket to the Champions League. Erik ten Hag nevertheless put his finger in the wounds at a press conference and criticized the club's transfer policy.
Manchester United is among the clubs that have spent the most money in recent years. However, sporting success has not materialized so far. Accordingly, coach ten Hag was not too impressed with the transfers. "Most of the signings in the past were just average and not good enough for Manchester United," he said, according to Fabrizio Romano. According to the Dutch boss, not everyone can handle the pressure at a club as big as Manchester United. "The United shirt is heavy. Only real personalities who perform under pressure can play here," he explained.
Just last summer, Manchester United spent around 240 million euros on Anthony, Martinez and Casemiro. However, Ten Hag does not mean this trio with his statements, but past transfers. On the other hand, players like Jadon Sancho (€85m), Donny van den Beek (€39m), Harry Maguire (€87m), Fred (€59m) and Aaron Wan-Bissaka (€55m) are all players who have played at have not kept what their price promised.
