the match of.
Manchester United have been in hot form recently, and the confidence of the fans has returned, but Ferdinand warned the Red Devils fans not to be blindly optimistic. He said: “I think it is too early to predict. Manchester United have also reached this level under the leadership of the previous coach.
At that time, we all felt that the team was going to be done.”
“We have to be patient and give Ten Hag time, I think everything is positive at the moment. Ten Hag came to the team and saw what happened, he assessed the situation, he looked at the individual players and the team.
“When Ten Hag first came to the team, there were many Manchester United players who fell to the bottom. They were smashed to pieces by public opinion. Ten Hag had to put these pieces back together, not just as a player, but as a player.
Putting the people back together. Ten Hag had to rebuild the ‘people’ and it took time.”
“Now Ten Hag is talking so positively about qualifying for the Champions League, it proves that he can feel the confidence in the team. United have had a steady run of performances and everything is positive.”
“But Manchester United are still not where they want to be, Manchester City are still far ahead, it is true that the gap between the two sides has narrowed a little bit, but we are still not where we want to be, there is still a lot of work to do.”
