Wout Weghorst reveals Erik ten Hag asked him to play as a number 10

Posted by

The Dutch striker has revealed that Erik ten Hag asked him to drop deeper and play as a number 10 behind Marcus Rashford.

Since joining in the January window, Wout Weghorst has played a very specific role in this Manchester United. The 6’6″ striker has acted as a foil for others rather than be an out-and-out goalscorer himself.

Weghorst has struggled to find the back of the net at times and recently revealed that Ten Hag demanded that he drop deeper and play as a number 10 to help Rashford.

‘The manager told me at half-time in the away game at Fulham that he was considering the option of playing me as a 10, behind Rashford’, he said, per the Mirror.

‘He told me just to take his plan into account because Ten Hag is a manager who places a lot of value on task-conscious play.

‘The manager then told me I had to do my share of defensive work in the role. I am a team player, so I replied “That’s no problem at all, boss”.’
