Manchester United captain Harry Maguire expects Eric Ten Hag’s leadership of the team in the new season to create a positive impact on the players when they return this summer, after the difficult 2021/22 season.
The former Ajax coach will lead United next season, after that was announced weeks ago.
Maguire said in statements published on his club’s website: “It has been a difficult season, it is no secret to anyone, it has been a disappointing season at the individual and collective level.”
“Football is my life. I care about the club a lot. I am interested in winning matches and taking United to where it needs to be, the fans deserve it.”
“I’m sure that on the first day of the preparation period, everyone will be on the move, doing everything they can to impress the fans and get back into shape.”
“We know we will improve because last season was not good enough,” he continued.
He concluded, “The presence of a new technical director will spread positive energy among the players, and this will create motivation among everyone.”
Ten Hag had spoken well of the United captain during his first press conference as the team’s new manager last week.
“I think Maguire has done a good job, he’s a great player, he’s already achieved a lot for Manchester United,” said the 52-year-old.
“Of course I look forward to working with him,” the Dutchman concluded.
