Manchester United

A legend from Brazil “warns Man Utd” against hiring Zinedine Zidane to replace Erik ten Hag for a crucial reason.

For a crucial reason, former Barcelona and Brazil player Rivaldo has previously criticized Zinedine Zidane’s management as a potential Erik ten Hag successor.

In the midst of rumors of turmoil in the Carrington locker room, Manchester United manager Ten Hag said that “one of two” players have questioned his style of play.

Following their appalling performance in a 1-0 loss to Newcastle United, United faced harsh criticism, and rumors circulated that the manager had lost the trust of some members of his squad.

Ten Hag responded, “I always listen to my players and I always give them opportunities to tell; if the players have a different opinion, of course I will listen,” in response to a question regarding the allegations.

“However, they haven’t told me—or perhaps just one or two. However, the main point is that most people want to play this way—they want to be bold, assertive, and dynamic. The way the players performed against Everton and Galatasaray shows that they are committed to the team. If the players do not accept it, do you believe we will be able to score as many goals as we did against Everton? [The players are behind me] I am certain.

“You may observe, for example, the victory against Brentford, the match between Burnley and Fulham. You can see that without unity, it is impossible to play football as well as we have recently.

In the event that Ten Hag is fired at United, former Real manager Zidane has been mentioned in connection with the Old Trafford team.

Even though Zidane led Los Blancos to three Champions League victories, Brazil great Rivaldo once praised former Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman while criticizing Zidane’s handling of young players.

“I have always said that the key to managing young talents is not to put too much pressure on them, and I think [Ronald] Koeman is doing well, bringing the kids together with [Sergio] Busquets, [Lionel] Messi, and Jordi Alba,” Rivaldo wrote in his Betfair column in 2021, as reported by Marca. Koeman is deserving of praise and admiration for that kind of leadership.

Regarding Zidane’s handling of young talent, Rivaldo remarked, “I don’t know who will be behind all this, but [Zinedine] Zidane is doing the opposite of what he did when he started using young talents like [Fede] Valverde, Rodrygo [Goes], or Vinicius [Junior].”

“This week, I read that Vinicius might have received penalty for looking at his phone during a Zidane speech.

“Letting a football player sit out a game is not the solution to those problems; that would only injure Zidane and your team. It would entail benching a football player who might be important in numerous contests. A fine is typically used to address that.”
