There is a rumor going around that Manchester United only recruited players related to manager Erik ten Haag.
British media outlet ‘Daily Mail’ reported on the 19th (Korean time), “Manchester United is concerned about the influence of Manager Ten Haag’s agent, Keith Boss, on player recruitment.” Keith Voss is the founder of SEG, Ten Haag’s agency, and is representing Manchester United transfers this summer.스포츠토토
Striker Rasmus Hoilun, who was signed by Manchester United this summer with a long-term perspective, is well known as a member of SEG. Manchester United, which was lacking a front-line striker, invested 75 million euros (about 106.4 billion won) in Hoilun after looking at several players.
When the recruitment was first announced, I was skeptical. Hojlun is a young prospect who made his professional debut in 2020 in Copenhagen, Denmark. Afterwards, he played in various leagues even at his young age, playing for Sturm Graz in Austria and Atalanta in Italy, but there were doubts about whether he had the weight to take on the front line of a big club.
Moreover, his personal record is 27 goals in 87 games since his professional debut, and he only scored 10 goals in Atalanta last season. No matter how promising a prospect is when he is on the rise, it is true that there were great concerns about Hoilun.
Manchester United chose the path of growing together. Director John Murtaugh, who signed Høilun to a long-term contract, said: “He has the highest level of skill and stamina among players in this age group. Coach Ten Haag will help Høilun develop and give him plenty of time to fulfill his potential. “He said
Hoilun has yet to make a solid first impression. Hoylun, who had a delayed debut due to an injury shortly after joining the team, is slowly increasing his playing time by appearing in games against Arsenal and Brighton & Hove Albion, but there is no news yet of him scoring the expected goal. As if he was not so lucky, his debut goal was canceled by video review (VAR).
Sofiane Amrabat, who led Morocco to the semifinals at last year’s FIFA World Cup in Qatar, has not yet made his debut. He joined Manchester United on the last day of the summer transfer window on a loan deal with an option for a permanent transfer. After his performance in the World Cup, he attracted attention by insisting on going to Manchester United despite several transfer rumors. However, he is not yet in perfect physical condition and is unable to hit the ground running.
As the transfer student fails to perform on time, arrows are pointed towards the recruitment plan. Moreover, Manchester United’s recruitment continues to trend toward failure as Anthony, who paid a transfer fee of 85 million euros (approximately 120.5 billion won) last summer, was recently excluded from the team due to personal issues.
In response to this situation, it is pointed out that SEG is too deeply involved in recruiting Manchester United. The explanation is that both Hoilun and Amrabat were recruited by SEG. Since the results of giving full authority over recruitment to coach Ten Haag are not good, it is leading to noise.
In the end, grades are the answer. Hoilun and Amrabat need to show that coach Ten Haag’s choice was right. In addition, coach Ten Haag must escape from the slump at the beginning of the season as soon as possible in order to maintain the championship he achieved last season.
