Erik ten Hag explains how Man United will use Harry Maguire & Scott McTominay this season

Erik ten Hag has been discussing two Manchester United fringe players.

After the transfer window slammed shut on Friday evening, Manchester United have been left with two players whom it is fair to say the fans are not that fond of.

Harry Maguire and Scott McTominay have been symbols of Man United’s fall from grace and their continued use in the squad has shown just how far away the Red Devils are from teams like Manchester City.

Now, with the pair at Man United for at least another six months, Ten Hag has been explaining why they have stayed and how they will be used.

Asked about Maguire and McTominay staying at the club, Ten Hag pointed to the fixture list as he emphasised the need for a strong squad to compete across four competitions.

“If you see the schedule, it’s really condensed,” the United boss explained.

“When you see last season, the World Cup, [it was a] crazy season. Last season takes longer, two weeks [longer]. We played the FA Cup final one week longer, we had a short break, a really condensed pre-season again, so we need numbers but also the numbers have to be quality.
