As everyone knows, this season Manchester United will not be playing in the UEFA Champions League after finishing sixth in the Premier League last campaign, which was one of the worst years of the club in recent memory. Instead, we will be participating in the Europa League.

This is the second-tier European competition in football. As we know, this is not attractive to certain players like Cristiano Ronaldo, who tried to find a club that will be in the Champions League, as he didn’t want to play in the Europa League. But after failing to find anyone, he will have no other choice.

The one who seemed like he didn’t have a problem with playing in this competition was Erik ten Hag, who didn’t hesitate to take the manager role at Manchester United in April when he decided to leave Ajax, where he was the center of the project and played in the Champions League every season.

This competition could be a great opportunity for Manchester United to win a trophy after five years of not winning any silverware. Funny enough, the Europa League was the last trophy we won back in 2017 when Jose Mourinho was in charge and defeated Ajax in the final.

What did the manager say about the competition?

Erik ten Hag said during the press conference ahead of the team’s Europa League debut against Real Sociedad that he is excited about it: “European nights are always special. It’s great to compete with good clubs from different countries with different styles and systems. I’m really looking forward to it”, he said.
