Trust the Process: Erik ten Hag has United Dreaming Again

English soccer giant Manchester United has been on a rollercoaster ride in recent years, with periods of success and failure interspersed with managerial changes and player acquisitions. The club’s fans have been clamoring for stability and a clear direction, and it seems that they may have found it when United appointed Dutch manager Erik ten Hag as their club’s manager on April 21, 2022.

Despite not getting the desired initial results, Ten Hag has shown the courage needed to make the tough choices that are necessary to turn Manchester United’s fortunes around. One of his boldest moves was going toe to toe with Cristiano Ronaldo, the superstar forward who returned to Manchester United in the summer transfer window.

Ten Hag did not hesitate to bench Ronaldo in several key matches, a decision that raised eyebrows but ultimately paid off. The coach’s focus on team tactics and balance over individual talent has paid dividends, as Manchester United has shown a newfound resilience and cohesiveness on the field.

The culmination of Ten Hag’s hard work came in the Carabao Cup final against Newcastle United. Manchester United put in a dominant performance, winning the match 2-0 and securing the club’s first major trophy in six years. The win was a significant milestone for Manchester United, signaling the beginning of a new era under Ten Hag’s leadership.

The victory in the Carabao Cup is just the beginning, and there is still much work to be done to ensure Manchester United’s sustained success. However, the signs are promising, and Ten Hag’s fearlessness and tactical acumen should give fans reason to believe that the club is in good hands.

It is refreshing to see a coach who is unafraid to make difficult choices and prioritize the team’s success over individual egos. Ten Hag’s approach may not always be popular, but it is undoubtedly effective, and Manchester United’s players seem to have bought into his philosophy.

In a world where success is often measured in immediate results, it takes courage to stick to a long-term plan. Ten Hag has shown that courage, and his hard work is beginning to pay off. Manchester United’s fans should be excited about what the future holds under his leadership, and the club’s rivals should be wary of the threat that a resurgent Manchester United poses.
