Erik ten Hag explains how he selects Manchester United transfer targets

Erik ten Hag has revealed that he looks at a player’s personality just as much as their ability when deciding whether or not to make them a transfer target.

The new Manchester United boss has enjoyed a good start to life at Old Trafford and his new signings have helped transform the side and improve results. Centre-back Lisandro Martinezand playmaker Christian Eriksen were both targeted by the Dutchman and have been two of his side’s top performers so far.

Casemiro has been up there as well following his £60million arrival from Real Madrid while exciting winger Antony and left-back Tyrell Malacia have also shown flashes of brilliance. That’s a great success rate from a single transfer window and Ten Hag has explained what he considers when making a signing.

We looked and with football players clearly that is the first thing, the capabilities a player has,” he told United’s official website. “The human being behind is also an important factor, but you can’t underestimate that. You need the right characters in your dressing room, not only if you want to win a game but if you want to win trophies.

Ten Hag has taken big strides with United, especially in instilling a sense of discipline within the squad. The Dutchman is happy with the direction his side is heading in but still sees room for improvement. He continued: “We have to, because we have huge ambition and if you have, you have to follow the highest standards and you have to live them every day.
