Erik ten Hag has spoken to the media ahead of Manchester United’s Premier League clash against Fulham this weekend.
Dutchman Ten Hag is under increasing at United after Wednesday night’s dismal 3-0 defeat against Newcastle United in the Carabao Cup.
Since the defeat by Newcastle, odds of Ten Hag being the next Premier League manager to be sacked have been slashed, with the likes of Zinedine Zidane and Graham Potter linked to replace him at the Old Trafford helm.
Ahead of this Saturday’s crucial Premier League clash against Fulham, Ten Hag spoke about the current mood inside the dressing room
He told reporters during his press conference: “They [players] are positive. They want to put this right and we know the standards here. We have to match them every day, we’ve had two big setbacks, but we’ll fight back. The dressing room is strong, the staff are strong and this manager is strong.
“I have a good squad. I’m convinced about the players in the dressing room. We saw these players last year, they can do a lot better, but that’s up to me to let them play better.”
He continued: “I have to take the responsibility to make them play better and I will put every effort in to get this done. I’m not thinking about transfer windows because I have a good squad.”
When asked whether the match against Fulham is a must-win game, Ten Hag said: “I never think of such scenarios – we have to win every game. We prepare very good and I’m sure the players are ready tomorrow to execute the plan.”
