Erik Ten Hag says only City should talk about Premier League title ambition

Manchester United FC manager Erik Ten Hag says only neighbors City should talk about having title ambition in the English Premier League at the moment.

The Red Devils Boss made this disclosure while responding to questions after his sides Pre-season loss to Borussia Dortmund on July 31.

Erik Ten Hag said: “I think in pre-season we shouldn’t talk about that. I think no one in the Premier League can do that — maybe City can do that because for the last six years they won the title five times.”

“But any other club must first compete for the first four positions (in the table), and make sure you are getting in the first four and then, after, the first two, and then maybe you can see about getting yourself into such a position (to win the title), but don’t talk about that achievement.”

Also, the Manchester United FC boss was pressed over his decisions this summer which includes stripping Englishman Harry Maguire from the captaincy as well as deciding against a new deal for David de Gea.

When pressed on those decisions, the Dutchman highlighted the difference between a manager and a human being, stressing he made those choices in an honest and transparent way.

Ten Hag added: “It’s the difference between a manager and a human being. In the end, top football is about getting results and then you have to make decisions, but you have to do it in an honest and transparent way.

”The club appointed me to take such decisions in these moments, but to also communicate those decisions and do it in a straight and honest way. That is what I’m always looking to do. I always try to do it in that way, ” the Dutch manager said.
