Premier League

Antonio Conte Already Reveals A Player Who Could Solve Man United Problems At The Midfield

Erik ten Hag is currently working on improving his inherited lineup ahead of the premier league season that is only 6 weeks from resumption.

As it has been hinted, the Dutch in his first premier league debut as a manager will face in-form Brighton Hove and Albion on the 7th day of August.

This summer, he is focusing on strengthening his engine room and former Tottenham Hotspur man Christian Eriksen and Frankie De Jong have already been put on frame.

With very little doubt, Frankie De Jong will have the defensive role at the club while Christian Eriksen is tipped to compete Bruno Fernandes for the attacking role.Alternatively, the Dutch could change his formation to accommodate both Eriksen, De Jong and Bruno Fernandes.

However, having worked with Eriksen at Inter Milan before being attacked by heart related disease that gave him marching orders from Sanssiro, Conte seems to have told Erik ten Hag how he could deploy Eriksen to solve his problems at the midfield.

Speaking back in 2021, Conte insisted that there is a way Eriksen's creativity in the final attacking third can be used right in front of his own defenders( defensive role)

Should Man United find the signatures of the Dane this summer, The manager could find the best out of Eriksen both as a defensive midfielder and attacking player, something that will be like a double singing.

"We're trying to get the best out of Christian in that position, even if he's already playing as an attacking-midfielder and a midfielder who goes deeper. This is good for the team and I myself have the opportunity to use it in a different role in midfield."
