After the victory over Liverpool .. the coach of “Man United” speaks and justifies not involving Ronaldo

Dutchman Eric Tan Hag scored his first victory as coach of Manchester United, on Monday, against arch-rivals Liverpool, and said the victory proved that his team can play “good football”.

Manchester United owes this important victory to its strikers Jadon Sancho (16) and Marcus Rashford (53), while the Egyptian Mohamed Salah scored Liverpool’s only goal (82), in a match in which Hague decided not to involve Cristiano Ronaldo except in the last four minutes.

“We can talk about tactical (factors) but it’s all about attitude and style. On the pitch there was communication and fighting spirit and you can see what they can achieve with these factors because they (the players) can play good football,” Hag said.The Times“.

This victory comes after the Dutchman wrote his name in the records as the worst start for a coach in the club’s history in 100 years, after a harsh loss against Brentford with a clean four, preceded by a first defeat at Old Trafford against Brighton 1-2.

Commenting on not including Ronaldo as well as captain Harry Maguire, Hague said: “I have decisions to make and I have to use the group. We have 50 or 60 games. I don’t have to mention that Harry Maguire and Ronaldo are great players and they will have a role to play in the future.” .

“The way they played today makes me feel good, but it’s only the beginning. We can play much better if we have a little more calm. We can be more dangerous.”

With this, United snatched the first three points and left the bottom of the standings to fourteenth place, a point behind Liverpool, who is now in sixteenth place.

The match came with Manchester United officially announcing the signing of Brazilian midfielder Casemiro until June 2026, with the option to extend for an additional year.

Casemiro, 30, moved from Real Madrid, which he played for since the 2012-2013 season, where he participated in more than 300 matches, and won the Champions League five times with him.

“In his career, he won many titles and it is important to have that in your team,” Hag said of the Brazilian midfielder, adding that “Varan has that and Ronaldo also and we need guidance for the young players who have not won titles yet.

“We hope that their presence will be a catalyst for the rest,” he added.
