Ten Hag’s team has not been able to improve upon their previous season’s success, which has been a source of disappointment for him thus far in the 23/24 season.
United is currently in seventh place in the Premier League table, thirteen points behind Liverpool, who are in first place.In Europe, the Red Devils’ Champions League campaign was a disappointment as they finished bottom of their group.
Now that the January transfer market is in full swing, Manchester United has been connected with a loan move for Benzema, a former star player for Real Madrid who is presently playing for Al Ittihad, a team that competes in the Saudi Professional League.Since leaving Europe for the Middle East in the summer, Benzema has made a total of 24 appearances and has scored 15 goals in those 24 games.
The 36-year-old player has been linked with a move to Chelsea in addition to United, which is another club.
Nevertheless, Red Devils manager Ten Hag has already made it very clear what players he desires to have at the club from a player standpoint.
“If you want to perform, you need hungry players,” the Dutchman said regarding the situation.I have already stated that we require personalities and players who are extremely eager to battle for the badge, so fight for this club, and to accomplish this within the team.
Ten Hag continued by saying, “I believe that it is not about discipline; rather, it is about normal behavior.”
It is about that, thus it is what you should anticipate from a highly qualified specialist.
It is possible that Ten Hag would want to recruit younger players who all have something to prove, despite the fact that we do not dispute Benzema’s will to win.
As a result of the fact that Benzema has won everything that is possible, including the renowned Ballon d’Or award, the La Liga championship, and the Champions League trophy, the striker no longer has anything to prove.
On January 28, United will return to action when they play in the fourth round of the FA Cup against either Newport County or Eastleigh. The match will take place on the 28th of January.
