The Dutchman defended his philosophy at Man United

After the worst start in six decades pressure has mounted on Erik Ten Hag and his managerial staff.

However, the Dutchman is convinced that his style of play and routine are not the issue, but rather the missing players in the Red Devils’ squad.

“I came here with my philosophy, based on possession, but also to combine it with the DNA of Man United, but also with the players and their character,” Ten Hag said.

“In the moment we’re in, with so many changes, we can’t line up the same game each time and we have to swap. We miss players in the back four and every time we have to adjust, which doesn’t help the routines.”

Ten Hag stressed that the atmosphere inside the team feels positive despite torrid run of form. Manchester United travel to Fulham during the weekend in more or less a must-win game.
