Louis Saha, a former Manchester United striker, has cautioned Ajax manager Erik ten Hag that the Red Devils’ job will be a completely different animal from anything he has encountered in his professional career so far.
The Frenchman has spoken about the possibility of the Dutch strategist taking over as permanent manager of Manchester United when Ralf Rangnick steps down at the conclusion of the season, and it appears that he has some significant reservations about him.
It’s evident that taking over one of the largest clubs in the world in one of the most competitive leagues in the world would be a major challenge for Ten Hag, who has done an excellent job at Ajax.
United may not be the dominant force they once were, but it only serves to make the manager’s job that much more difficult, as the club’s supporters are yearning for a new manager to take over and steer them to success.
Although Saha is unsure whether or not the players from Manchester United will be familiar with Ten Hag, he believes that this may be a problem.
“He has quality without a doubt, and the Dutch people are highly aware about football,” Saha told the Metro. “The Dutch people are very knowledgeable about football.”
I’m sorry, but it’s a different beast this time around.” Ajax is a trampoline for professional sports teams. In terms of world football, they’re well-liked, but they don’t belong in that group. This isn’t the same as Milan or Real Madrid.
“I’m confident that the majority of the players are unfamiliar with him. Taking charge of this club is a very different story. In the past, we’ve seen some major names come in and fail to make the cut.
In terms of titles won, Jose Mourinho is one of the biggest names in international football. However, we believe his time in charge was an unsuccessful one.
