Manchester United has had a a fairly good run to this point of the season after kick starting in a nightmare to lose the first two EPL fixtures to Brentford and Brighton respectively. Since the appointment of Erik ten Hag from Ajax Amsterdam, the club has received a greenlight towards getting back to it's former glories.
In light to this matter, The Dutchman has won the Carabao Cup with just less than a year in charge of the giants who had been in a slumber for over five years. The manager signed big team players like Tyrell Malacia from Feyenoord, Antony Santos and Lisandro Martinez from Ajax, Casemiro from Real Madrid and Eriksen from Brentford on a free transfer.
It is evident that the 53 year-old is getting the best out his players. Manchester United now register as the club with most wins (31) all competitions included across the major leagues in Europe.
One of Erik's sensational signing has been Lisandro Martinez. The World Cup champion had to put up with a lot critics from the likes of former Liverpool player, Jamie Carragher, who in fact questioned his height now being that he is a centre-back. The now English pundit gave his verdict that Martinez could not play in the Premier League with his height.
However the Argentine has always stepped up for the team and has been the architect of United's backline. The former Ajax man has formed solid partnership with Raphael Varane which has seen Lindelof and Maguire on the bench. He displays master-class performance every week and this has earned him a nickname "The Butcher" from the fans.
The 24 year-old has won player of the month award at United and has also won the Carabao Cup. He has a blooming career ahead of him if he keeps his current form, winning spirit and right mentality. What a charm Manchester United were lucky to have signed!
