Reactions of Moyes, Guardiola, Rangnick and Pochettino to the arrival of Erik ten Hag

The arrival of Erik ten Hag provoked numerous reactions, one of them is the reaction of Pep Guardiola "Watch his Ajax team and you see his qualities," Guardiola said. "Congratulations to Erik and wish him all the best. He is a top class manager, his teams are a joy to watch at a team like Ajax." David Moyes, a former Manchester United coach who could not help the club from Old Trafford, also reacted positively to the arrival of Ten Hag.

"I don't know him but I obviously admire Ajax and how they've played over last few years," the Scotsman told reporters via The Mirror. "He's joining a great club and he'll find that when he gets there. It's a huge club and a good club to work for.

"[His coaching style] adds to the variations of what we have got from different coaches from different parts of the world. But will it make Man Utd stronger? We'll have to wait and see." And the current Manchester United coach believes that Ten Hag will have a lot of work to do "One of the very few good things, is that it's crystal clear.

You don't even need glasses to analyse and to see where the problems are," said 63-year-old Rangnick. "So, now it's only about how do we solve them? For me, it's clear it's not enough to do some little, minor amendments, some little issues here and there, some minor cosmetic things.

"No, in medicine you would see this is an operation at the open heart, so there are more things to be changed than some little things here and some minor things there, and this is the good thing."

Mauricio Pochettino

One of the candidates for the arrival was Mauricio Pochettino, who possibly even negotiated with United.

Still, the Old Trafford club seems to have trusted Erik ten Hag more, especially due to Mauricio Pochettino's slightly worse results lately. "All the rumours throughout my football career have never really affected me," he said.

"I don't comment on rumours either. "When I have been in charge of Southampton, Tottenham and now PSG, I have always been fully committed. Rumours are rumours, we don't need to pay attention to them now. We know they exist and they are generated on a daily basis.

As always, we are focussed on our job at the club." Much is expected of the Dutchman, and it is certain that he has a difficult job ahead of him.
