This one smart move by Ten Hag could have saved his job at United – report


The Carabao Cup quickly followed the tournament’s departure last year, and the Champions League qualification campaign is all but over.

There is still the FA Cup, but Manchester United needs to defeat either Chelsea or Manchester City to win it—that is, assuming they win against Coventry.

It makes sense, then, that the question of Erik ten Hag’s job security has heated up so much in football circles.

However, a number of things are reportedly contributing to the Dutchman’s continued employment, according to a report that The Peoples Person just shared.

If the latest reports are to be believed, then another one can be added to the list.

Ten Hag has a lot going for him because he is willing to successfully integrate young academy players into the first squad, according to GIVEMESPORT.

This season, Alejandro Garnacho—who was a success story the previous season—has advanced, and Kobbie Mainoo has joined him in that discourse.

Willy Kambwala has emerged as a legitimate option for United’s defense recently, which is something that few people anticipated at the beginning of the season.

Although Kambwala’s debut was more the result of need and necessity than a well-thought-out strategy, the manager has generally done a good job managing younger players.

He was also praised for it at Ajax, where he oversaw the development of a golden generation of players.

The image of Garnacho and Mainoo with Hojlund perched on the banner has already gone viral, and something similar might occur at United as well.

When it comes to making debuts, injuries have certainly had some influence, but how Ten Hag has managed their development after that debut is just as significant—if not more so—than the debut itself.

Ten Hag has shown himself in this area, and laying the groundwork for a stronger United in the future may help him hold onto the position for the time being.
