Schweinsteiger: Ten Hag will improve every Man Utd player

Former Bayern Munich reserves captain Tobi Schweinsteiger says Erik ten Hag will improve Manchester United’s players.

Now assistant coach of Nurnberg, Schweinsteiger is the brother of former United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger and played for Ten Hag with Bayern II.

He told manutd.com: “For me, he showed me how to improve my style of play and what he also did in the last years in Amsterdam is he showed he can help talents to grow but he also showed that he can improve the experienced players like Daley Blind, Dusan Tadic, Davy Klaassen right now. They play big roles and they have improved under his coaching. That is one of his talents.

“He isn’t only a coach who improves the young players. He’s also improved the experienced players and improves the team and improves the club. That is really good and now I hope and yearn, in my heart, that he can improve Manchester United. It will take time to improve everything and to develop the club in the right direction but he is so clear in everything, in his philosophy, in the details, so I think he could be the right choice.”

Ten Hag will take charge of United when he leaves Ajax at the end of the season.

Schweinsteiger also said: “Yeah, he is a master in training sessions. I remember we had long training sessions in the second team and, in the club, there were some rumours about long training sessions in the Under-23s. After a few weeks, we recognised why we were doing long training sessions. He wanted us to be perfect and would stop the training session if it doesn’t work and if it was not perfect at all. And, from time to time, the training sessions weren’t that long anymore because we were better. We were improved and, in rondos, in pressing situations, we were better and better so the time was shorter on the pitch.

“But, yeah, he was, for me, the first coach when I felt like a training session made sense. Before, training sessions were okay – this part, this part and then that part. He was the first coach, for me, from the warm-up to the last match on the pitch it was like okay, one seam and we are working on that until it’s perfect.

“That’s a big part of my training philosophy as well, also with the education and the UEFA pro-licence I did last season, that’s a big part – to have one seam and work in that seam until it’s perfect. Don’t stop until it’s perfect. He is that guy who doesn’t stop until it is perfect.”
