Erik ten Hag Explains Mixed Reaction to Manchester United’s Winning Goal

In a thrilling 4-3 victory over Wolves, Manchester United found themselves 2-0 and 3-1 up but faced a tense moment when Pedro Neto scored a 95th-minute equalizer.

Manager Erik ten Hag expressed frustration with what he described as “naive” game management by United players.
Despite leading 2-0 at halftime and being 3-1 up in the last 10 minutes, United allowed Wolves to level the score with goals from Max Kilman and Pedro Neto in the 85th and 95th minutes.

Kobbie Mainoo eventually secured United’s fifth Premier League away win of the season with a magnificent winner in the 97th minute.

Ten Hag acknowledged the team’s performance and individual displays but emphasized the need for better management in crucial moments. He pointed out mistakes, particularly instances where the team failed to hold onto a lead, conceding goals due to defensive lapses.

The manager emphasized the importance of leadership on the pitch, calling for better decision-making, especially when the team is ahead.

He highlighted the need for composure, ball retention, and defensive organization when leading a game. Ten Hag criticized the team for going for another goal instead of maintaining possession, taking unnecessary risks, and encouraging opponents.

Despite mixed feelings about the match, Ten Hag was pleased with the team’s overall performance, particularly in the first 60 minutes, which he considered the most accomplished of the season.

He acknowledged that the performance level dropped after an hour but attributed it to some players not being 100% match fit.

Casemiro conceded a penalty that allowed Wolves to get back into the game, and Ten Hag felt the team’s performance dropped after the hour mark. Despite the challenges, he expressed satisfaction with the first 60 minutes of the game.

Ten Hag highlighted Marcus Rashford’s goalscoring return, with three goals in his last three Premier League games. He believes the United attack is starting to click, emphasizing that if the front line receives proper service, they pose a threat to any opposition.
