Tyrell Malacia’s personal trainer claims Premier League is a good step for United target

It’s been a frustrating summer so far with Manchester United yet to make any signings.

Erik ten Hag’s first signing since arriving at United should be on the horizon, with the Red Devils close to an agreement with Barcelona over midfield ace Frenkie de Jong.

It is widely expected that Feyenoord left-back Tyrell Malacia will follow the fellow Netherlands international to Old Trafford.

United swooped in after Lyon showed significant interest in the 22-year-old, but we’ve seemingly hijacked attempts from the French club and he’s set to become one of Ten Hag’s first signings.

Norwegian Manchester United blog united.no has secured an interview with the personal trainer of Tyrell Malacia, Jordan Kroon, who gives a lot of insight into his client’s approach to football which is likely to please some of our readers.

The report reveals that, in addition to all the mandatory training Malacia conducts with Feyenoord daily, he’s also spending time with a private personal trainer for three classes a week.

Kroon said: “Yes, and he does this to become faster, more explosive and stronger. He has played absolutely everything the last two years and has also played for the national team. He has really made progress. And I think he can develop further and become even better in all areas.”

In response to the recent links to United, Malacia’s personal trainer continued: “I think this is a very good transition for him. He is good both defensively and also has offensive qualities. I think the Premier League is a very good step for him.”

Kroon adds: “He’s a very serious guy. Not like the typical football player and not interested in social media. He puts in a huge effort and is incredibly good at dealing with pressure. He has delivered the goods in big matches for both club and national teams.”

That’s a glowing reference.

I like that he’s not interested in social media and wants to focus on his football. He’s a footballer after all.
