EPL We shouldn’t laugh – Neville reveals what Ten Hag told him about Weghorst. Gary Neville, a former captain of Manchester United, has shared what manager Erik ten Hag told him on the team’s January acquisition of Wout Weghorst.
Weghorst paid €3 million to loan from Besiktas to Man United in January.
Although not scoring many goals, the Dutch attacker has played frequently for Man United under Ten Hag.
In ten appearances for the Red Devils, his lone goal came in the EFL Cup against Nottingham Forest.
Neville claimed on his program that Ten Hag informed him that the 30-year-old adds value to the club and can push opponents.
“Wout Wehghorst is my favorite. We shouldn’t laugh, but occasionally in today’s world… You have to respect Erik ten Hag for selecting him for each and every game, Neville remarked.
“Before the game, I questioned Ten Hag about that. He believes that he adds something to the squad, and I can understand this. The question of whether or not Man United could push with Cristiano Ronaldo came up last season. They were unable to retreat from the front. They were unable to press. You have to be able to press in the current game.
Weghorst excels at transitions in anything he undertakes. He excels in stopping set pieces. When they are in good form and he is observing space, he is really good. For a squad with a lot of offensive skill, he is playing a crucial role. He continues to play because of this, he said.
