Manchester United’s Disarray Under Ten Hag: Tactical Critique by Jamie Carragher
In a recent exchange with Sky Sports, former defender Jamie Carragher has openly criticized the tactical decisions made by Erik Ten Hag, which have led to Manchester United’s current state of disarray. Carragher’s perspective highlights the midfield as the team’s main concern, with Ten Hag’s current midfield arrangement coming under significant scrutiny.
The former Liverpool center-back expressed:
“To me, the midfield setup is just not suitable. I’ll take a look at Casemiro, but I think there are some issues. I believe it’s due to the manager’s organization, what he asks of the midfielders to do, and the midfield alignment based on their playing style – it’s just not right.”
“The reason I dislike the manager’s setup is because he’s utilizing a man-marking system. You can clearly see how disconnected the Man United midfield trio is because they’re playing as individuals.”
“As we witnessed in matches against Wolves and Tottenham, Casemiro is left isolated in the middle of the field, and he can’t handle it on his own.”
“James Maddison simply needs to drift behind Casemiro, keeping his distance from him, and he’ll be right in front of Manchester United’s defensive line.”
