The Premier League kicks off its season this Saturday, August 7. Find on Mercatofootanglais.com a presentation and a forecast for the 2022/2023 season, club by club. This time, let’s focus on Man Utd.
Forget last season. This will initially be the main objective of new manager Erik Ten Hag. If the Dutch coach of Manchester United sees in the longer term, he will still have the pressure of results from his first season on the Mancunian bench. A new era that local supporters hope will restore credibility and honor to their favorite club. And the latter, stamped “commercial football club” by his former coach, Louis Van Gaal, has his work cut out for him. And it would have gone from the soap opera Cristiano Ronaldo.
Cristiano Ronaldo, the thorn in the side of Erik Ten Hag
Erik Ten Hag was counting on Cristiano Ronaldo this season. But the Portuguese has other ambitions. That of playing again and again in the Champions League. We know the rest. The Portuguese star has asked to leave but is struggling to find a club. Returning to Manchester after following a personalized preparation in Portugal, officially for family reasons, the Lusitanian striker distinguished himself by leaving the stadium quickly after his replacement during the last friendly match against Rayo Vallecano. Hello atmosphere. The sequence did not at all please Erik Ten Hag who let it be known. Hello the pre-season atmosphere.
At the same time, Manchester United has emptied its workforce. Paul Pogba, Edinson Cavani, Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard, left. Going the other way, the Red Devils brought in Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez. Not necessarily enough to bring Manchester United back to the top 4 of the Premier League.
Player to watch: Jadon Sancho
Arrived at the dawn of the 2021-2022 season, Jadon Sancho has not yet lived up to the expectations placed on him by the Red Devils. His second season, in a team led by Erik Ten Hag is therefore eagerly awaited. At 22 now, he will have to prove that he is capable of playing this game in an acceleration to destabilize any defense. His performances will be scrutinized a few months before a World Cup in Qatar that he hopes to play.
