It is known that Ten Hag has special requirements for power, more specifically, he wants to have an important voice in Man Utd’s transfer business – an element that the post-Sir Alex captains absolutely do not. have been.

 Therefore, it seems that Man Utd is taking quite a while to consider Ten Hag’s request. And taking advantage of this opportunity, a leading European team, RB Leipzig, planned to ‘rob’ this captain from the Red Devils’ hands.

 In fact, it can be said that this is a paradoxical decision for Leipzig, if you look at what coach Domenico Tedesco has done for this club.

 Replacing his predecessor as coach Jesse Marsch in December, Tedesco then took over a very miserable Leipzig team, standing in 11th place in the Bundesliga rankings.

 However, Tedesco quickly revived the situation and helped Leipzig regain the image of a “big” Bundesliga. Currently, they have climbed to 4th place after a series of extremely impressive performances.

Need to know, in the last 17 outings in all competitions, Leipzig lost only 1 match with a tight score of 2-3 against Bayern Munich. And in the clash with the second team of the group Borussia Dortmund, Tedesco’s army destroyed them with a score of 4-1.

 According to statistics from Sofascore, since the time of entering 2022, Leipzig has scored 34 goals in the domestic tournament – a better achievement than any other team in the 5 biggest European tournaments.

 At the same time, only 3 teams, Manchester City (8 goals), AC Milan (7) and Liverpool (6) own a better defensive record than Leipzig (9) in this period. Obviously, Tedesco has turned Leipzig into one of Europe’s best performing teams, and it is paradoxical that they intend to replace him with Ten Hag.
