Ten Hag insists playing Weghorst is important to Manchester United.

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag insists Vout Weghorst performance is a key part of the club’s outstanding form.

The loan striker is often criticized for scoring few goals compared to the central striker. But for Ten Hag, his play is crucial to giving his team-mates more opportunities.

Asked about the 6ft 6in striker. The Dutchman said: “Of course, I think he plays a lot of roles in football.”

“Vout has done a great job for us. He is the leader of pressing. He started pressing and squeezing the game against the opposing back very well. And He is in a good position and his connection with his team-mates is very good.UFABET

“He’s mobile. open space for others He is also good at set-pieces. He is truly involved in the team game. I think after Christmas we played 25 games and lost 2 games with Weghorst playing most of them. So he is truly part of the success.”

Wakehorst joins the Red Devils at a difficult time. Because he is often compared to Anthony Martial and Cristiano Ronaldo. Although he has not scored against both this season. But at least he gave Ten Hag what he wanted: compression in the upper half.

“He’ll score but at the same time he’s doing other things very well as well. It’s not about individual goals. It’s about scoring goals for the team. Because the team must win. I think he is doing very well at this moment in many aspects of football.” said Ten Hag.
