Dwight Yorke worried about Erik ten Hag and Premiership form
by | VIEW 454
Manchester United's form has been worrying lately. Erik ten Hag cannot be satisfied with his team's performances and it is obvious that he has to change some things. Dwight Yorke, the legend of this club, believes that Erik ten Hag should be worried, considering that he has recorded 9 defeats in the Premier League.
‘Manchester United losing nine games in the Premier League under Erik ten Hag does raise some issues,’ Yorke said, as quoted by METRO. ‘If you are a Manchester United manager, you will always be scrutinised for little details or mistakes.
There’s nowhere to hide. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had a better record than Ten Hag in his full two seasons managing the club, people talk about the progress we’ve made and the better style of football being played.'
Dwight Yorke on Manchester United
Yorke did not forget to praise the progress of Manchester United. The final of two English cups and the fact that they played brilliantly in the Europa League until the match with Sevilla can instill optimism.
However, the result in the Premier League is a cause for concern. ‘Manchester United have reached the FA Cup final, won the Carabao Cup and made it far in the Europa League so that is progress, but Ten Hag losing more Premier League games than Solskjaer in the 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons has to be called out.
The results have not been good enough this season, Manchester United are looking over their shoulder and are desperately trying to
hold onto fourth place, I’m not sure that’s where the club wants to be.'
Yorke believes that United must know how to win, even in an ugly way.
‘You can’t hide in these circumstances, the players and the manager alike need to be called out. Ten Hag gets the praise when the team is playing well, he has to take the criticism when it goes wrong too. The disappointing thing in my observation in these games is that Manchester United don’t know how to win ugly, it always has to be a pretty game of football.'
