‘What a performance by Ten Hag and the players responded’

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag “looked like a different man” in the side’s FA Cup quarter-final win over Liverpool, says former goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel.

 

The Red Devils had to come from behind twice against Jurgen Klopp’s men before scoring winner in the final minute of extra time to reach the semi-finals.

 

“The way United won that game pleases me enormously because it is something that has gone out of their game in the past few years,” Schmeichel told BBC Radio 5 Live Breakfast. “I haven’t seen that urgent willingness to do absolutely crazy things in order to achieve that win.

 

“But what a performance from Ten Hag and the players responded to what he wanted to do.

 

“I think Ten Hag has done really, really well in the past couple of games. He has got Alejandro Garnacho looking like someone who can play every game and work hard the whole time. That comes from the manager telling and teaching him how to be on the pitch.”

 

The United boss has been under pressure this season after early exits from cup competitions and inconsistent form in the Premier League leaving them struggling for Champions League qualification.

 

However, Schmeichel credited his tactics as crucial for changing the trajectory of this quarter-final.

 

“In extra time, Ten Hag changed the formation and threw caution to the wind,” said Schmeicehl. “We call that risk mode where you put everything in there in order to win.

 

“Most people will say this doesn’t mean anything but he came on that pitch yesterday in a suit and tie and looked like a different man. He looked like the manager, like a strong character. Sometimes these little changes have a massive impact.

 

“If this is how Ten Hag is going to approach this next period, then I don’t see any reason for a change. There are lots of other positions that need changing in the club and you can’t do it all in one go.”
