EPL: He’s like Alex Ferguson – Steve McClaren gives verdict on Manchester United ‘permanent manager’

Steve McClaren, former assistant to ex-Manchester United boss, Alex Ferguson has likened Erik ten Hag’s meticulous planning to that of his (McClaren) former boss.

He also insisted that Ten Hag, who is Manchester United’s top target, is ‘ready’ for a top job in Europe.

Several reports in Europe point to Ten Hag becoming the permanent boss at Old Trafford, having impressed United chiefs in initial talks last week.

The 52-year-old is now ahead of Paris Saint-Germain boss, Mauricio Pochettino in the race for the top job.

Ralf Rangnick, who has been there on an interim basis for a few months now, will vacate the hot seat at the end of the season.

McClaren worked as Sir Alex Ferguson’s assistant in the early 2000s.

He later worked with Ten Hag at Dutch side, FC Twente.

“His great strength lies not just in his attention to detail and organisation,” McClaren told the Daily Telegraph.

“Erik is very disciplined. Tactically he’s outstanding,” he added.

Speaking on the 52-year-old’s attention to detail, McClaren stated that: “The only other one I would have seen do that? That would have been the gaffer [Alex Ferguson].”

Meanwhile, Manchester United have missed out on every opportunity to win silverware this season.

Under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (sacked) and Ralf Rangnick, the Red Devils have crashed out of the Carabao Cup, FA Cup and most recently, Champions League.

They are now fighting for a top four finish in the Premier League, which could see play in the Champions League next season, but the chances are also very slim.
