‘He could be the new Klopp or Guardiola’ – Ray Parlor names his pick to become Manchester United’s next manager


Ray Parlor believes Erik ten Hag could follow in the footsteps of Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola if he is appointed Manchester United manager. The Dutchman is strongly tipped to become the Red Devils’ next head coach, with ESPN reporting that the club are finalizing his appointment.

Parlor believes ten Hag could become as good as Guardiola and Klopp, who have dominated the Premier League in recent years. He told TalkSPORT:

“The most important thing is to have the right manager. They seem to have (Erik) ten Hag, I think he is a very good manager to come into your club. At Ajax he has very well done. Their way of playing is quite exciting so I think maybe he will try to bring that style to Manchester United.”

The Ajax coach has been in a two-way race for the United job with PSG’s Mauricio Pochettino. He is reported by The Telegraph to have usurped the Argentine, who has his fair share of admirers within the United camp.

Choosing between the two, Parlor said he would go with ten Hag and said:

“I would go with Ten Hag if I’m honest. I would give it a go. He could be the new (Jurgen) Klopp or (Pep) Guardiola, who knows. Next, it’s a big overhaul of the whole club. Not just the first team, but the academy and everything that happens with Manchester United.”

“You really have to start over. If they ever want to get closer to Manchester City and Liverpool, they have to have a plan moving forward.”

Manchester United could end the season on a high with the imminent appointment of Erik ten Hag

Manchester United are currently trailing fourth-placed Tottenham by three points.
Manchester United are currently trailing fourth-placed Tottenham by three points.

The Red Devils have had a hugely disappointing season. They have left all cup competitions and face an uphill battle to claim fourth place in the Premier League.

If they fail to finish in the top four, United will not be able to offer ten Hag the opportunity to start his United career in the Champions League. However, that doesn’t seem to have deterred the Dutchman.

Erik ten Hag has asked Man United to be 100% involved in the current and future transfer strategy: new signings, departures, new contracts. 🔴 #MUFC Ten Hag sees this as a ‘key point’ in rebuilding Man United – new signings need to be totally perfect for his idea and club project. https://t.co/w3pPSQ5C97

News from Old Trafford is that the team are close to confirming the 52-year-old as their new boss. The new manager ‘bounce’ that so many teams experience after a new coach has arrived has always benefited struggling teams.

Although the Dutch manager won’t join the team until the summer, United could end the season on a high knowing that a much-loved coach is set to take over.
