Danny Murphy identifies who Man Utd should have hired instead of Erik ten Hag

Danny Murphy believes Manchester United ought to have employed Gareth Southgate as their new manager, instead of Erik ten Hag.

Ten Hag is supposed to carry out a ruthless rebuild at The Theater of Dreams with a large group of senior players expected to leave and upwards of six new players coming the alternate way. But when asked if Murphy would take Ten Hag or Southgate and his assistant Steve Holland, the former Liverpool midfielder went for the latter – for a number of reasons.

“They’ve come a long way, the pair of them, they’ve got a great partnership,” he told talkSPORT. “I think for what they’ve achieved at England, the way he’s managed players, big players, I think he’s evolved into a very, very intelligent football manager. With Steve by his side I think they’d do a great job at a big club.”

Murphy pointed to the transformative job Southgate has done with the national side – believing that a similar overhaul will be required to reverse the fortunes of the 13-time Premier League winners.

He added: “What United need now isn’t all about on the pitch. They will be judged on that, but initially what do United need? They need someone to bring together this squad and try and create a unity, atmosphere and energy that England have. I think that would be fair.

“What Ten Hag has done, of course it’s credible, winning the league three times with Ajax and he did alright with Utrecht. He’s not managed big players at a big club, so we don’t know how he’s going to deal with that pressure.

“Every part of his life will be magnified, whether he goes to the wrong shop at the wrong time, whether he drives the wrong car. Everything he does, is now going to be talked about.”

As per RMC Sport writer Sacha Tavolieri, a level two source, Manchester United have agreed with Veronique Rabiot based on personal conditions for her son Adrien.

United have previously settled on an exchange with Juventus and were just trusting that Rabiot will green-light the arrangement.

The 27-year-old was reportedly demanding a pay rise, a regular place in the starting XI and a signing-on bonus to move to Old Trafford. It’s unclear if United have agreed to all those demands.

Director of Football John Murtough flew to Italy on Friday to meet with Veronique and Adrien. It looks like the meeting was successful after all.

Thomas Tuchel backs Hudson-Odoi and Gallagher to battle for playing time at Chelsea

Thomas Tuchel has supported Conor Gallagher and Callum Hudson-Odoi to battle their position into first-eleven contention at Chelsea.

Notwithstanding, the Blues manager was philosophical when found out if either England international could leave in the transfer window, adding: “Nobody is for sale, and everybody is for sale.”

Gallagher showed up as a late substitute in Chelsea’s first clash of the season Premier League victory upon Everton last week, while Hudson-Odoi was missing from the Blues’ crew at Goodison Park.

The two players have been connected with moves away because of the opposition for places at Stamford Bridge, with Hudson-Odoi a detailed target for Borussia Dortmund and Gallagher widely admired after racking up eight Premier League goals and three assists on loan at Crystal Palace last term.

While Tuchel perceives N’Golo Kante, Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic represent harsh rivalry for Gallagher, he needs to see him understand his undoubted promise at Chelsea.

“Conor fights in central midfield,” Tuchel said ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash with Tottenham. “To be honest, it is a very tough fight for him because, at the moment, it seems we only have two places in central midfield. 

“Given the amount of players we have for central midfield, it isn’t ideal, I agree. But we have to do what’s best for the squad, not just for each individual player.

“But at the moment, he is absolutely fine. I am a huge fan of Conor. He is a fantastic guy, and this is what we already knew, in the first weeks of training, he has shown how much of a step he has made through having so much playing time.

“It is a very, very normal situation and his development is that at the moment, after some fantastic training sessions in the beginning, there is a little dip in his form and freshness.

“On top of that, there’s a huge competition with N’Golo, Jorgi and Kova, who are used to playing with each other. 

“This is also life in a big club like Chelsea, so everything is in its right place. We are happy with him. He keeps on fighting, and this is what he does. I think he has everything to become very important in the next years at Chelsea.”
