Erik ten Hag will probably change a lot during the summer. The Dutchman is aware that he has to make big changes if he wants his team to be in the fight for the Premier League title next season. Tonight's match with Chelsea will be a good test for his team.
Manchester United will have the imperative to win, considering that with a win they will confirm their departure to the Champions League, and even with a draw. Erik ten Hag wants his team to invest money wisely this summer and bring in the players they need.
"You have to do the right things," -said Ten Hag, as quoted by eurosport.com
"You can have money, but you have to do it and spend it in a smart way and you need to have a strategy behind it - otherwise the money doesn't work.
In this moment a centralisation of good players, of the best managers, also the money, is all here in the UK.
That makes a great competition but also a tough and a hard competition.
I think there are many more teams in the Premier League who are really strong."
Erik ten Hag: I think we are in a good direction
The Dutch expert believes that his team is going in the right direction.
The most important thing for him is obviously the Champions League. Winning the League Cup, as well as the fact that they are playing in the FA Cup final, shows that Erik ten Hag has done a good job in a short time. "I think we are in a good direction but also we can also learn from this season," -Ten Hag added.
"We have to evaluate that after the season, make the right conclusions for the future and that is what we will definitely do that after the season." Manchester United already has several options for the summer.
The most important thing will be a good striker, who can solve the match with his move. Harry Kane and Victor Osimhen are in circulation. We will see if one of them will strengthen the Red Devils.
