Erik ten Hag breaks silence on Raphael Varane’s Man United future amid fall out claims

Erik ten Hag has broken his silence about Raphael Varane’s future at Manchester United.

Recently, it has been claimed that Ten Hag and Varane have fallen out after the Dutchman left the defender out of the team to face Manchester City last month.

According to reports, Varane was left unimpressed by Ten Hag’s decision to pick Jonny Evans over him.

In addition, it has been claimed that the relationship between Varane and Ten Hag has ‘practically broken down’.

Speaking ahead of United’s Premier League clash against Everton this weekend, Ten Hag was asked about Varane.

The United boss said: “I don't know what you're talking about.

“It's just rumours but there is internal competition. When you have to decide between two players who are brilliant - Varane and Harry Maguire - then you have to make a choice.”

Heading into the match, United are the most in-form team in the Premier League despite their troubles in the Champions League.

Speaking about the upcoming matches, Ten Hag said: “We go into a massive month, we are looking really forward and confident, in the Premier League, everyone is winning from everyone, there are no easy games for no one, every team will drop points, but the last five games, We won four and that gives us confidence in the next games.”

When asked whether he thinks United have turned a corner, the Dutchman added: “Definitely, we have seen a turning point, we have seen how we deal with certain situations that we build on a certain foundation and now we have to build on.”

On the lack of Premier League goals from the likes of Marcus Rashford and Rasmus Hojlund, Ten Hag said: “I am confident we will get a point. Our players are able to score goals; they have shown it already. Rashy last season, Hojlund in the Champions League. Our players are capable; there will be a point when it comes. They have to step up, but our players have the ability to score goals.”
