Gary Neville disagrees with Jamie Carragher that incoming Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag faces similar troubles Jurgen Klopp had early on at Liverpool.


Ten Hag will take the reins at Old Trafford in the summer time while interim supervisor Ralf Rangnick makes manner. The Dutchman faces a conflict to convey the good times again to the Theatre of Dreams after a difficult few years. United have now not gained the Premier League name considering the fact that Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure.

And they look like lacking out on a Champions League berth subsequent season. There are not any such troubles for the Reds, with Klopp’s expenses nonetheless tough on 4 fronts.

But it became not continually that manner at some point of the German’s time at Anfield. And Carragher believes that there are echoes of Klopp’s initial adventure going through Ten Hag at United.

“I suppose it is very similar, it simply is,” he instructed Sky Sports. “It turned into likely a harder activity for Jurgen Klopp due to the fact the finances for any Manchester United supervisor we’ve seen over the last ten years, and going forward, are probably lots more than what Jurgen Klopp had whilst he first came in.

“People speak about how lengthy it have to take Ten Hag and there’s speak of Liverpool and Man City being 5 years beforehand. Someone even stated ten years ahead.

Speaking on Monday Night Football, Neville gave his opinion at the assignment beforehand for Ten Hag. And the previous Manchester United right-again disagreed with his colleague that Klopp’s preliminary process at Anfield became more difficult than the one facing the cutting-edge Ajax chief.

“I don’t think so. When Jurgen Klopp got here in, there were no real set winners at that point when he got here in,” he stated.

“I liken the process that Ten Hag has were given at taking up these two incredible managers in Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp, who have set foundations at their clubs for 5 years, to Gerard Houllier’s mission whilst he got here in when Sir Alex Ferguson and Wenger have been set or while Rafa Benitez came in and Jose Mourinho, Sir Alex Ferguson and Wenger had been set.”

And the pundit feels Ten Hag faces a massive task to conquer the managerial heavyweights he will face.

“You’re getting into Manchester United now while there’s or three fantastic managers, I placed Tuchel in there as properly, who are set of their jobs,” he brought. “When Klopp got here in, Guardiola was just starting, Manchester United were in the midst of converting managers regularly and there had been no set foundations at any huge club.

“The job Ten Hag has got is certainly large. The process Jurgen Klopp had turned into large as properly, so I’m now not underplaying that – it’s outrageous what he has performed.

“We all wish that Ten Hag is available in and blows every person away and that Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola blow up by some means. But they’re no longer blowing up.”
