Man Utd coach ten Hag looking at January transfers during 'useful' international break

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag believes the international break will be beneficial for his team.

The Red Devils defeated Sheriff Tiraspol in the Europa League on Thursday.

Due to the postponement of Sunday’s clash with Leeds United, ten Hag’s side will not play again until October 2.

“It’s very useful. We have many meetings, we have to improve the structures in and around the club,” ten Hag said after the game.

“We will also look to the window in January or next summer already to improve our way of playing by making plans.

“Of course, [you get these] periods after a game, but we have to be ready for that and many players, let’s say 90%, are away.

“But the others, we will train properly and for the rest we have to prepare very well. I hope that everyone stays fit and return back healthy and then we have to get into attack.”
