“Internal rivalry is a constant, and I am quite happy with his current standing. It may serve as a basis for further development and advancement.”

Sofyan Amrabat, who was required to make a few crucial defensive blocks and challenges to maintain Man United’s advantage over Newcastle, has also impressed en Hag.

Ten Hag remarked, “I think he was playing a very good game.” Excellent work, very significant in pressing and counterpressing.
