Manchester United began its new project with the incorporation of the Dutch trainer, who signed as first reinforcement a young Dutchman who would have an important role in a position that had to be reinforced by having complications with the level of play of the English Luke Shaw.

The Dutchman completes a defence that looks solid, alongside Varane, Lisandro and Dalot. They form a defence that in three games has left the opposition without scoring. A statistic that was not very common in recent times in the team, the left-back position is covered by Tyrell Malacia.

The player commented to Sky Sports, that he felt good when he spoke to Erik ten Hag on the phone, as, realising what the manager was looking for and that he had a fixed idea of what he was looking for, he largely decided to give him the benefit of the doubt, and became the first signing of the Erik ten Hag era as Man Utd manager.

After earning a starting place in the team, the young left-back commented that he enjoys playing with the best players in the world, that every training session he learns something new, and that he hopes to learn from all his teammates in order to improve every training session, they know the role that each one has, and the aim is to give Manchester United results.

Meanwhile, Luke Shaw will make the competition for the left-back position tough, as a photo was leaked showing how his body condition has improved.
