Every word from Ten Hag’s pre-Bournemouth press conference


Erik, can you talk through your defence at the moment? You’ve played two games with Luke Shaw as the left-sided centre-half. Harry Maguire has been sat on the bench, you’ve got Martinez coming back. How do you see all of that fitting together?
“Of course you have your ideas, and a plan, but sometimes it changes by circumstances like illnesses from Harry [Maguire] and from Victor [Lindelof]. Normally they should have started in the games we just played, but then Casemiro did well as a centre-half, Luke Shaw against Forest did very good, and also you look into the game plan, the way we have to approach Wolves, and I thought it was the best match with Rapha [Varane] and Luke. Especially defending wise, we know the speed from Wolves over on the right side, and he [Shaw] could cover that because we want to attack over on the left side with offensive game from Tyrell Malacia so that was a good fit. And also in possession, you always – with a left foot – get better angles on the pitch.”
