EPL: Man United haven’t given up on Champions League qualification- Ten Hag

Source The Ghana Report

Erik ten Hag has denied that Manchester United are out of the race to qualify for next season’s Champions League after the team’s 2-2 draw with Bournemouth on Saturday.

United, who have won just one of their past seven matches in all competitions, are 10 points behind fourth-placed Aston Villa and fifth-placed Tottenham with six games remaining in the race for a spot in next season’s Champions League.

“We give what we can, but I am also realistic,” Ten Hag told a news conference after the full-time whistle.

“And so when the full squad was there, I still would’ve said high belief, but we will keep fighting also with the players who are available. And you see there is high potential but also young players.

“Yeah, they make mistakes and if they have to perform every Premier league [game] and they proved they can compete with the best teams on the highest level. They proved. But now they have to do it consistently and that is always the next step for young players.”

Asked if he accepted that the Champions League is beyond his team now, Ten Hag said: “No. No, I didn’t say that.”

United’s failure to beat Bournemouth, and Newcastle’s 4-0 win over Tottenham earlier on Saturday, meant that Ten Hag’s team dropped to seventh in the table.

Ten Hag refused to answer a question as he left the news conference on the potential of United slipping even lower in the table. If United were to end the season in eighth position or lower it would be the club’s worst finish in Premier League history.

“I don’t take that question,” Ten Hag said. “That is not important at this moment.”
