Erik ten Hag has reacted to the news that he has won the Premier League’s Manager of the Month award for November.
With Harry Maguire being awarded Player of the Month for his November efforts, Ten Hag has been voted the Manager of the Month for November, as well as Alejandro Garnacho winning the Goal of the Month with his overhead kick against The Toffees.
Ten Hag best off competition from three other nominees in the forms of Rob Edwards (Luton), Eddie Howe (Newcastle), and Andoni Iraola (Bournemouth).
Speaking in his pre-match press conference ahead of United’s tie against Bournemouth at Old Trafford on Saturday, Ten Hag was asked about winning the Manager and Player of the Month awards before reminding the reporters of Garnacho’s feat.
“And the goal of the month as well?” he responded with a smile.
Speaking on Player of the Month winner Maguire, as well as Scott McTominay, Ten Hag said: “I think we have a squad and in the squad, there is internal competition, if you want a successful season, you need more than 11 players.
“Finally, in every season, it will turn and in every season, it’s what is the best team. They are here, they are great players and played into the team. That’s what you expect from every player, there has to be a dedication to aim for this.”
United welcome Bournemouth to Old Trafford in a bid to draw level on points with Manchester City, with the club sitting just three points off the top four positions in the league table.
The game is set to kick off at 15:00 GMT.
