Erik ten Hag has been informed by Robin Van Persie that there is one team in the Europa League draw that he does not want to face.
Additionally, he hopes they will defeat Manchester United.
After defeating Barcelona 2-1 at Old Trafford, the Manchester United team secured a spot in the following stage of the continental competition.
Additionally, United is eagerly awaiting their midday draw opponent.
As a non-seeded team, they will avoid another Champions League elimination.
United and Ferencvaros of Hungary were paired in a simulated draw yesterday.
However, Van Persie, a former striker, believes that the Red Devils will not want to face the Dutch team Feyenoord.
The winner of the Premier League is now a coach for the Eredivisie team.
Additionally, when Ten Hag was in charge of rival Ajax, he encountered Feyenoord a number of times.
However, if they are paired together today, Van Persie believes that his new team can prevail over United.
When BT Sport asked Ten Hag who he wanted in the draw, he responded: “It doesn’t matter for me!
“I focus on Newcastle [in the Carabao Cup final], that is the only thing that counts.
“Doesn’t matter who will come, we have to beat them all, we know that, if you want to win a cup.
“We will see. We will respect every opponent, don’t get me wrong, but we are well prepared and we have a strong belief we can do it.”
Van Persie, who was alongside Ten Hag on the field, said, “I think Erik wants to play against anyone except one team. Who’s that? Feyenoord!”
Ten Hag responded: “I go to [Robin] to get all the information! No, I think it’s a possibility!”
Van Persie continued: “I work for Feyenoord now, and Feyenoord is my childhood team so… difficult one.
“Listen, Man Utd won so many things over the years, let Feyenoord win this one then!”
