Manchester United fans attached a lot of meaning to coach Eric Ten Haag’s trivial actions.
Manchester United recorded a 3-0 victory over Leicester City in the 24th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at Old Trafford in Manchester, England at 11:00 pm (Korean time) on the 19th. With this, Manchester United recorded 15 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses (49 points), narrowing the gap with ‘2nd place’ Manchester City to 3 points.
An easy victory for Man United was expected. Man Utd, who built a solid tactic under manager Eric ten Hag this season, continued their unbeaten streak in the last seven official games. In the previous game against Barcelona, despite being away from Camp Nou, they drew 2-2 with efficient football. If it wasn’t for a somewhat uncomfortable decision, it would have been a situation worth aiming for victory.
As if continuing the recent trend온라인카지노, Manchester United played a good game. Based on the soccer statistics media ‘Who Scored’, he tried 26 shots and pressed Leicester’s goal hard. Of course, he allowed 19 shots, but thanks to the performance of the defender and David de Gea, he was able to keep a clean sheet.
On this day, the main character of the match was Marcus Rashford. Rashford, who is continuing a tremendous scoring streak, continued to rise by adding goals in the 25th minute in the first half and 11th minute in the second half. In the 17th minute of the second half, even Jadon Sancho joined the scoring process, and it was a good result for Manchester United fans.
Fans went crazy for another scene. It was a trivial action, but it gave it a slightly exaggerated meaning. In the 14th minute of the second half, it was the moment when Yuri Thielemans came on as a substitute. Ten Haag approached Thielemans as he prepared to make a substitution and patted him on the back as he entered the pitch.
It can be a meaningless action. But Manchester United fans are beginning to interpret Ten Haag’s actions. This led to the conclusion that they would try to recruit Thielemans in the summer. One fan responded, “Did you see the pat on the back of Thielemans when Ten Hag was replaced? I really want to see him in a Manchester United shirt!” Another fan said: “Ten Haag patted Thielemans on the back as he was playing. He’s already gearing up for the summer transfer window.”
In addition, most of the reactions related to ‘recruitment’, such as “Are you coming for free in the summer?”, “Tillemans is holding a small audition in front of director Ten Hag”, and “Director Ten Hag gave him room”.
