Speaking to The Athletic, Bruno Fernandes said: “First of all, Erik ten Hag has an idea. He has a style. You have to follow his rules. He is strict on that. And I like that. He has brought discipline, which is something I think we missed in the past.
“Everyone must be on the same page. That is what Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp have been doing for years, because they have stability in the club and in the way they choose the transfer market and build the team.
“It is really important for them to get the rewards. I saw the manager say in a press conference that we do not want to bring players just for the sake of it, we want to bring the right players. It is something the club needs.
“We still have a margin to improve and Ten Hag needs time to get the most out of us with his idea of playing. I believe we will get to the point with him where we are established as a team and everyone is on the same page.”
New manager Ten Hag went through a rocky start to life at Manchester United with the Red Devils suffering back-to-back defeats at the start of the 2022/23 Premier League season.
However, the Dutchman showed courage to change the starting XI and his style of play with Man United winning four consecutive top-flight games, including a 2–1 win against Liverpool.
