Ten Hag's Light Training Moment With Star Striker Shows His Top Man Management

Despite having a slow start to life at Old Trafford, Dutch tactician, Erik ten Hag has shown some promising signs of a potential return of the glory days with his impressive style of play and ability to identify the team's area of weakness during matches already getting a laud from the Red Devils' fanbase.

Moreover, the 52 year old has proved to be not afraid to bench the underperforming stars with Cristiano Ronaldo, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw as well as Aaron Wan-Bissaka all getting retired to the bench after putting on disastrous performances.

Meanwhile, the former Ajax head coach has shown a great man management since his move to the Theatre of Dreams and his laughter moment with Portuguese international, Cristiano Ronaldo in today's training session couldn't prove otherwise.

In pictures released by manutd.planet, Ronaldo and Ten Hag can be seen having a chat together, with the former later joining up his teammates for the usual training drills and hence, hinting on a goodwill between the two who have lately dominated the headlines on their possible fallout following the constant benching of the five times Ballon d'Or winner.

In seven games across all competitions, the 37 year old has only managed to get two starts which came against Brentford and La Liga side, Real Sociedad with the remaining games seeing him coming on as a substitute. And what's more, youngster Anthony Elanga has been preferred ahead of the Sporting Lisbon academy graduate for the United starting XI.

In the meantime, several reports suggest that English striker, Marcus Rashford has been chosen by Ten Hag to lead his forward line during his Old Trafford tenure, a move which is understood to have been welcomed by the United dressing room and it now remains to be seen how Cristiano Ronaldo will react to win his place back though the training moment with the Dutch tactician shows his full commitment.
