Manchester United’s new manager Erik ten Hag has suggested that he would put an end to Manchester City and Liverpool’s dominance in the Premier League.
Man City became the champions of England on Sunday after they came from two goals down to beat Aston Villa 3-2 at Etihad.
Manchester City and Liverpool have both shared the Premier League titles in the last five years, with the former winning it four times.
And United’s new boss, Ten Hag, has hinted that there is a chance both City and Liverpool’s dominance come to an end while he’s at Old Trafford.
“I admire them both, Manchester City and Liverpool,” Erik ten Hag said in his first interview as Manchester United manager. “They both play fantastic football. But you will always see an era come to an end.”
And some United fans are already loving the Dutchman’s attitude, with one describing his comments as a ‘bold’ statement.
@UtdShola tweeted: “Ten Bald ending Baldiolas domination.”
“I love what I’m hearing from him,” @JohnnyFX1 tweeted.
Another tweeted: “Sounds suspiciously like “knocking Liverpool right off their fucking perch.”
@Kergs said: “Wow…. That’s a bold statement.”
Another excited fan tweeted: “No beating about the bush..simply ‘I like you, but I will stop you” TenHag has got guts.”
Manchester United ended their season with a disappointed 1-0 defeat to Crystal Palace, thanks to their horrible performance.
Erik ten Hag was present at Selhurst Park and reports claimed he was particularly not impressed with how some United players performed.
Speaking about the loss, the Dutchman said: “I observed it, I analysed it, but it’s for me. I wasn’t in charge and I take this information into the new season.”
