Erik Ten Hag spoke to TALKSPORT ahead of the Manchester Derby, explaining how United have turned Old Trafford into a fortress and how they can win on Saturday.
It’s by standards. By every day, living along high standards. It’s by the team, building a team. Nobody is bigger than the team, everybody has to contribute to the team.
That’s not about 11 players, but the whole squad. It’s the team around the team. All the staff – the medical staff, the performance staff, the coaches, the analysts. Everyone has one aim and they’re contributing to that and working hard for that with togetherness.
When we keep this going, we can achieve a lot.
Specifically, on the City game, he said this:
I think we can compete with every team. Obviously, when Man City are at their best, it’s a hard opponent for everyone.
But we have to play our best, then we have a chance. If we don’t, like at City, we don’t have a chance. It’s up to us to have a good team, the right co-operation, the right attitude.
We need a winning attitude on Saturday.
