Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag, has said his Manchester City counterpart, Pep Guardiola, was “too quick” when he said the Red Devils are coming back.
Guardiola, speaking to the media on Friday, said “I have the feeling United are coming back, finally United is coming back.
“I’ve seen it on Thursday [against FC Sheriff] and against Chelsea in the first half.
“I said I like what I see of United right now. There will be a lot of teams like United fighting,”
However, after a 1-0 win over West Ham on Sunday, Ten Hag insisted his team is still work in progress.
“I think it’s a bit too quick [for Pep Guardiola to say that Manchester United are coming back]. In the second half we have to manage it better. But the spirit we have is fabulous.
“We have the quality to score goals, but attacking football effectiveness we have to improve that. But we are going in the direction, but being a threat is a long way to go,” Ten Hag said.
