Arsenal legend, Thierry Henry, has made a surprising admission about Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag and the Red Devils after their Premier League 3-2 to Arsenal on Sunday.
Despite Man United’s defeat, Henry has been impressed with the progress that Ten Hag’s side have made in the last six months.
The former Barcelona striker said he even recommended Barcelona president Joan Laporta to appoint ‘genius’ Ten Hag after Ronald Koeman’s dismissal.
Speaking on CBS Sports, Henry said, “I am happy that Arsenal won and they deserved to win after the performance in the second half, but boy, Manchester United look different under Ten Hag.
“I will be honest, I am a big fan of Ten Hag. He is the coach I recommended to Laporta at Barcelona after Ronald Koeman was sacked. He is a genius.
“Today, we saw a team with three years of development vs a team with six months. Also, a team with a full week of rest against a team with two days of rest, and still Manchester United went toe to toe, which was surprising. I thought Arsenal would be all over United from kick-off, and United’s players would sit back. I was wrong.”
