Ten Hag to Continue Managing Transfers Amidst Hojlund's Fiery Outburst in Man Utd

Manchester United heads to Bramall Lane on Saturday night, aiming for consecutive Premier League victories, a first this season under Erik ten Hag’s leadership.

The ongoing Manchester United saga remains far from tranquil during this international break. Notably, Sir Jim Ratcliffe is poised to secure a 25 percent minority stake in the club, marking a twist in the protracted takeover drama.

Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani, the frontrunner, withdrew his £6 billion offer due to apparent hesitance from the Glazer family.

Nonetheless, for Erik ten Hag, the primary focus remains on the pitch as the Red Devils venture to Sheffield United this Saturday, seeking to build on their thrilling triumph over Brentford in their last outing.

In the realm of transfer dealings, former Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov is resolute that Erik ten Hag will maintain control, provided Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s proposal is ratified.

Berbatov, who graced Old Trafford for four seasons, anticipates the 70-year-old billionaire’s support for the Dutch manager, stating, “The club awaits improved management, and if Jim Ratcliffe is the solution, we must patiently observe how it unfolds.”

Berbatov underlines that Ten Hag’s preferences will still dictate player acquisitions on the field, while acknowledging the need for stadium renovations off it.

Hojlund’s furious San Marino rant

Manchester United’s 20-year-old striker, Rasmus Hojlund, expressed intense anger regarding the treatment he endured during Denmark’s 2-1 victory against underdogs San Marino on Tuesday night.

Hojlund, who netted a goal in the 2-1 win, faced some rough challenges. He voiced his frustration, stating, “I understand Italian, and I could hear several of them making offensive comments while physically confronting me aggressively. They pushed and grabbed me quite roughly.”

“When we scored, I displayed the flag, and it seemed to agitate them, resulting in more physical confrontations. I find it highly disrespectful that they resorted to hitting and manhandling.

In particular, Alessandro Tosi, who was present in the media mixed zone at the time, was notably aggressive, tugging at me forcefully.

Casemiro’s fitness boost

Casemiro has provided Manchester United with a positive injury update ahead of their upcoming match against Sheffield United on Saturday night.

The midfielder was prematurely substituted during Brazil’s 1-1 draw with Venezuela last Thursday, raising doubts about his availability for their World Cup qualifier against Uruguay on Wednesday. However, the former Real Madrid star was included in Fernando Diniz’s starting lineup for the match in Montevideo.

Remarkably, the 31-year-old demonstrated his fitness by completing the entire 90 minutes for the Selecao, despite a disappointing night for the five-time World Cup champions. Marco Bielsa’s team suffered a 2-0 defeat to Uruguay, with goals from Darwin Nunez and Nicolas de la Cruz.
