Matchday Q&A with Erik ten Hag | Omonia Nicosia (A)


It was a very professional, controlled game away at Sheriff. Is that the kind of template you look for in European away games?
“Not only European games. In all the games, we want to dominate, to dictate and at least control the game. So that is for every game, that is our approach and that will not change.”

It was good to see Anthony Martial back on the pitch, scoring goals at the weekend. How’s he looking in terms of fitness and form?

“After a good pre-season, he fell out and only played a half game against Liverpool and we are happy he’s back. But we will take it careful, step by step in a process to bring him back, but he played now almost a half, so 35 minutes, which is good and now we have to extend that. But from game to game, and we have a lot of games to cover.”

Finally, it’s a long trip to Cyprus and back, so is it good to have the game with Everton late on a Sunday to give you more recovery time?

“It doesn’t matter. If you have short recovery time or long recovery time, we have to be ready for the game on Sunday. But forget this for the moment, because we have to play on Thursday, so we have to focus on that.”
