Erik Ten Hag has picked four Manchester United players he expects will step up to lead the team out of the crisis they are currently facing. After defeat to Copenhagen in midweek, the Red Devils sit bottom of the Champions League table after four games, while five defeats in 11 Premier League matches have left them eighth in the table.
While expressing his desire for more from all his players, The Dutch coach selected Bruno Fernandes, Andre Onana, Harry Maguire and Scott McTominay are the players who will help him pull the team out of the mud.
“We have the elements that can do that,” Ten Hag said at a news conference Friday. ‘I would mention Andre Onana, Harry, Scott McTominay who showed leadership in such times.
And of course Bruno. We have enough players with character to stand up and lead the team. But others must step up too. Casemiro and Licha Martinez were not available so others had to take their place.”
Ten Hag aims to return to winning ways against Luton at Old Trafford on Saturday, but knows it won’t be an easy win after watching the Hatters hold Liverpool to a draw last weekend.
