Erik ten Hag: Ajax author says Jadon Sancho & Marcus Rashford may thrive at Man Utd next season

We spoke to writer Karan Tejwani about what Erik ten Hag could bring to Manchester United.

Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford are the two Manchester United players who could benefit most from Erik ten Hag’s appointment at the club.

At least that’s the view of author Karan Tejwani, who spoke to ManchesterWorld about United’s new manager earlier this week.

Karan has recently released his latest book Glorious Reinvention, which details the rebirth of Ajax in the last decade, a process Ten Hag was very much at the forefront of.

“I think Jadon Sancho’s the top name that comes to mind,” he said, when asked which of the current squad could be suited to Ten Hag. “I think he needs a stable team at Man United. He’s shown moments of his quality across the season.

“I don’t think he’s had a bad season, but there’s a level of inconsistency around the whole club and he has shown his moments. I think he will have a great time under Ten Hag.

“I think Marcus Rashford as well,” Karan added. “He’s not had a stable run of years with a manager. There have always been changes, and I know he’s criticised quite often this season but he is a 24-year-old with 90-odd Man United goals. I think Ten Hag will be able to exploit the talent he has inside of him.”

Following the news that Ten Hag will be swapping Amsterdam for Manchester this summer we spoke to Karan to get a sense of what United fans can expect from their new manager.

In the above video, the author discussed his new book and detailed the role Ten Hag played in Ajax’s revival.

Karan also spoke about the Dutchman’s appointment at Old Trafford, gave an insight into Ten Hag’s philosophies and playing style, explained how his tactics actually clash with Ralf Rangnick’s, and gave his view on whether Cristiano Ronaldo can function effectively under the new coach and what he’ll need to succeed at Old Trafford.
