Luke Shaw Aims Sly Dig At Ole Gunnar Solskjaer And Ralf Rangnick In Praise For Erik Ten Hag
| Last updated
Luke Shaw appeared to aim a sly dig at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ralf Rangnick as he praised 'top, top' manager Erik ten Hag.
Shaw and the rest of the Manchester United squad have been put through their paces as Ten Hag stamps his identity on the team ahead of the new season.
The Dutchman has implemented his philosophy, with a fascinating video highlighting the intensity in training whilst out in Thailand for their pre-season tour.
And the structure under the 52-year-old has been applauded by Shaw, who hailed his new manager in glowing praise.
But, in doing so, the left-back has taken aim at previous Man United managers Solskjaer and Rangnick.
"It’s clear that he’s a top, top manager. He has a structure to play the way he wants us to play," said the 27-year-old.
"We haven’t had that for quite a while, and it was clear to see last season, which was extremely disappointing.
"We have to bounce back [from last season] and he has been working us extremely hard, but I think we need it.
"We’re really looking forward to this season because I know it’s going to be much better than the last one."
Shaw featured regularly under Solskjaer, but the club legend was often criticised for his lack of tactical knowledge.
Under Rangnick, though, he didn't play as much with Alex Telles picked ahead of him following the German manager's appointment.
The England international will have to fight for his spot once again ahead of the 2022/23 following the transfer of Tyrell Malacia.
The Dutch left-back became Ten Hag's first signing for Man United.
Malacia comes with a big reputation after impressing for Feyenoord and he's already making an impression at Man United, having 'run rings' around his teammates.
