There is a lot of talk about the departure of Marcus Rashford to PSG. The rumors started yesterday. Manchester United fans don't know what to think about it. Most are dissatisfied with Rashford's performances, while there are also those who believe in the young Englishman.
Erik ten Hag spoke a little more about it at the press conference. “He’s really important,” Ten Hag said of Rashford, as quoted by www.football365.com “You have seen from the first day I’m here, I’m really happy with him, I don’t want to lose him.
“He’s definitely in our plans at Manchester United”. Manchester United have been active in the transfer market this summer and have brought in Lisandro Martinez, Tyrel Malacia and Christian Eriksen. The fans think that at least 3 more reinforcements are needed.
Erik ten Hag is satisfied with the current situation, but it is certain that at least one more reinforcement will arrive. “I’m happy, I think we’re co-operating really well,” he said. “I cannot talk about players under contract at other clubs”.
“I know there is always pressure,” Ten Hag added. “I have the experience, how it is, I know we have to win every game, I know the fans, everyone expects Man Utd to win every game, we have to deal with that and all I can do is prepare the team as well as I can this weekend”.
Many people wonder if Ronaldo will play against Brentford in the next match. “He had a good training week,” Ten Hag said. “He’s had two half-games (against Rayo Vallecano in pre-season and Brighton) and for the starting XI we will see tomorrow.
I have made the decision, I keep it”. Erik ten Hag cannot be satisfied with the first match in the league, considering that United lost to Brighton at home. However, the Dutch believe that he will learn from his mistakes and that the team will fix everything that went wrong.
“What I always do after every game: I analyse the game, what went well, what went wrong, where can we improve, what do we have to improve, how we can train and we tell the players and show them how to improve to get solutions.
“We learned a lot but I think it’s normal, when you start the season, that part is the same, the team get together, the way we’re playing, new start and you make mistakes, football is a game of mistakes. We know we have to improve in many things, clear.
