“He’s doing a fantastic job” – Rio Ferdinand names the ideal candidate to replace Solskjaer at Manchester United.
Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has named current Ajax manager Erik ten Hag as the ideal and most favorable candidate to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United.
Ferdinand thinks United should appoint a manager who can command a dressing room filled with different egos. Speaking on his FIVE YouTube channel (via the Mirror), Ferdinand said:
“You’ve got to be able to go in there and command a whole dressing room full of egos, full of big personalities, big characters. That’s the job of anyone coming in.”
The club legend has also rained praises on the job being done by the Ten Hag. Ferdinand believes the objectives of Manchester United and Ajax are similar due to the stature of both clubs.
“Now I don’t know Ten Hag personally but he’s doing a fantastic job at Ajax,” he said. “Let’s remember that Ajax isn’t a small club. They’re a massive club – the biggest club in Holland.”
“Yes, it’s different and the landscape is different but it’s still a huge club that he’s got to work with and the expectation levels there every day are to win,” he added. “That’s something that will be there and very similar at Man Utd if he was to come to Man Utd.”
Erik ten Hag has done a fantastic job as the head coach of the Dutch club. The 51-year-old manager has guided Ajax to two Eredivisie titles and a semi-final appearance in the Champions League back in 2019.
