After the best of the decade, Manchester United are making a comeback.
Last season’s third-place finish and Carabao Cup triumph gave United a solid base to work on ahead of the second chapter of the Erik ten Hag era, which sees them visit Wolverhampton Wanderers at home. on this monday night The club has ambitions to improve their league position and add another trophy or two this season.
Inspired by Ten Hag’s world-class coaching history and disciplined approach. Standards have been restored to levels unprecedented at Old Trafford since the time of Sir Alex Ferguson last season. The Dutchman refuses to embrace a mediocre approach and has resulted in increased standards and performance levels across the board.
He hasn’t shied away from challenges or big decisions that risk spoiling the apple cart. Just ask David De Gea, Harry Maguire, Marcus Rashford and Chris. Stiano Ronaldo

The Dutchman brought an end to an era of player power at Old Trafford and was a mastermind in creating a fractured relationship between players and supporters after a disastrous 2021/22 campaign.
Above all, Ten Hag is a manager who commands authority. Which is missing from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s individual skills. He’s an elite coach. Solskjaer isn’t.
But winning the trophy at the first opportunity and leading the club back to the Champions League last season. His managerial approach is fully justified. and management style This, along with his willingness to make big decisions others tend to hide, should keep United moving forward.
In a bid to continue on the right track have added three new faces to their squad this summer, all of whom signed a declaration. Andre Onana was drafted to develop the plan. United’s youngster playing from the back, Mason Mount has been added to the squad to inject new energy into the midfield and Rasmus Hojland has been signed to score.
The new additions, though, will be key in helping United move forward. The Reds have a hot record when it comes to selling players at the right time in recent years. The club refused to pay when the time was right. Instead of choosing to tie other players to new contracts with big paychecks .
Eric Bailly’s contract extension in April 2021 is probably the best and most bizarre example of United’s mismanagement in recent years. Since putting pen to paper on a new contract in the summer of 2024, he has made just 13 appearances for United, the last of which was in December 2021.
With Ten Hag at the helm There is no chance that this situation will repeat itself. As he shows it to De Gea Although hesitant at first And with the youth group at the beginning of this summer If the player is not in his plan Or no chance to break through in the future They are outside the door.
As Ralf Rangnick said prior to United’s interim appointment in November 2021, building the club was a two-way process. Players have to come and go. You cannot continue adding players without saying goodbye to others.
And that is why United decided to accept an offer from Fenerbahce for a midfielder. Fred is another example of Ten Hag being allowed to call shots at Old Trafford and make the necessary decisions. Although the Brazilian played in 56 of 62 games last season But he hasn’t had a chance to start this season after Mount arrived.
United always intended to sell Fred. There was no doubt upon realizing that his contract, despite being extended, But it will be extended within a year. And his value would drop even further from that moment. Previously, United might let him run out of contract and then let him go for free.
United have been guilty of plotting and mismanagement for far too long, however, Ten Hag was allowed to correct those offenses and was given the authority to fire orders.
A lot of players needed to move out before the deadline. But Fred’s imminent exit shows United are finally learning from their past mistakes.
