Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has revealed he wants his team to be a threat from everywhere.

Ten Hag admitted that he is eager to see his Manchester United team impose themselves from both flanks, as well as the middle.

“I was really happy to see it,” said Ten Hag, reflecting on Sancho’s showing against Liverpool. “We have a good left side, but I think you saw against Liverpool that we also had a threat on the right side.

“It was really good to see it because you want to have weapons. When it is only on one side it is predictable, so we want that to develop over two sides, also from the middle. We have to come from everywhere.”

Meanwhile, Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has been told to let Cristiano Ronaldo leave the club if that is the player’s wish.

“If Ronaldo wants to go then let him go,” Alan Smith told 888.

“He’s someone who obviously wants to play Champions League football. He has come in at United and done the job for him he was paid to do which is to score goals.

“But Ten Hag now obviously wants a clean slate and no distractions. ‘Ronaldo is not playing this week’. ‘He’s on the bench’. You don’t know any of that and it’s all a bit of a soap opera really.”

He added: “So if he wants to go, then try to get that sorted early doors. I’m not sure how efficient they are at Manchester United and they’ve in a state of flux with a new manager but Ten Hag will want to get a squad together that he actually wants to work with.”
