Ten Hag’s striker plea

Erik ten hag has pleaded for a new striker and explained how it would transform his Man United team.

When asked whether United’s 2-0 defeat to Madrid highlighted the club’s need for a new striker, Ten Hag admitted: “Absolutely!

“There were two things – the pressing can be better from the start, and scoring goals.
