Tyrell Malacia explains how ten Hag convinced him to join Man Utd

Tyrell Malacia has revealed how Erik ten Hag convinced him to join Manchester United.

The Dutch left-back followed ten Hag from the Eredivisie this summer after leaving Feyenoord.

Malacia has been a key reason for United’s recent winning run, and the 23-year-old says he has trust in his manager.

Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: “I knew him because I played against him in Holland.

“Actually before I came here, I spoke with him on the phone and had some good talks with him. It felt good for me. You see what he wants.

“I think his vision is quite clear. Now, as both individuals and as a team, we have to develop that. It was a big decision to make so to know the club and the manager both want me, that was important for me.”
