Manchester United hero Rio Ferdinand has become the latest person to praise Erik ten Hag for the impact he has had at the club since he replaced Ralf Rangnick last year.
Ten Hag endured a challenging start to life at Old Trafford but with roughly six weeks of the campaign remaining, United are on track to recording their best season since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013.
With eight games to spare in the league, United have already recorded more points than in their previous campaign and the six-year wait for silverware was ended earlier this year as the Reds collected the Carabao Cup.
Additionally, they are in the semi-finals of the FA Cup and have the chance to reach the same stage of the Europa League later this week when they face Sevilla in the second leg of their quarter-final tie.
Speaking recently, Ferdinand has explained how Ten Hag has turned United’s fortunes around, arguing the Dutchman has made one fundamental change.
“Stability,” Ferdinand said on his Vibe with Five podcast, via the Manchester Evening News.
“Simple as. He has brought a bit of stability and brought a bit of pride back into the building. He has also brought direction and a little bit of discipline.”
United’s season is already turning out to be far better than anyone had imagined at the start of the campaign but ending it with another two trophies would blow anyone’s predictions out of the water.
In addition to their good runs in the cups, United are in a comfortable position in the race to finish inside the Champions League places, with fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur trailing the Reds by six points.
United also have a game in hand on the London club and will be manifesting their return to Europe’s fine dining table over the next couple of weeks.
