Christian Eriksen praises Erik ten Hag for transforming Man Utd’s season

Manchester United midfielder Christian Eriksen has praised coach Erik ten Hag for transforming the club following his arrival last summer.

The 53-year-old manager has led the Red Devils to fourth in the Premier League with eight games left.

United have won their first trophy in six years, beating Newcastle United to claim the League Cup.

They have also reached the semi-finals of the FA Cup and face Sevilla in the Europa League quarter-finals on Thursday.

The accomplishments are no mean feat, considering Ten Hag had to deal with the Cristiano Ronaldo situation.

Eriksen believes the former Ajax manager has stamped his authority on the club.

Speaking to Man Utd’s website, Eriksen said: “He has brought discipline in football terms and ideas.

“His ideas are being imprinted in the players, compared to the beginning. Looking at them now, people know what they are doing on the pitch.

“So, I think he is done the structure, the discipline, and then, of course, his idea is just fun football to play.”

Despite the high praise for his manager and the team, Eriksen reiterated that there were still things to improve. Eriksen remarked that Ten Hag would also say the same.

Eriksen was out for several weeks after suffering an ankle injury against Reading in the FA Cup.

He returned to training and came on during the second half of their Premier League clash with Everton.

Eriksen will now focus on helping United for the final few weeks as they seek more glory.
