Ibrahimovic: Man Utd TOO BIG for Ten Hag to handle

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag doesn't have the experience to handle dressing room egos.

That is what has got former United star Zlatan Ibrahimvoic worried with respect to the club's trajectory.

Ten Hag, who won the Carabao Cup last season and finished third in the Premier League, is struggling to find a winning formula this term.

Ibra stated, per The Sun: "Coming from Ajax to United as he did is a big difference — I have been in both clubs.

"You have a different kind of discipline.

"Ajax is a talented club. They have the best talents in the club. They don't have big stars.

"What is the experience of this coach? Young talents, he comes to United, it is a different mentality.

"The players there are supposed to be big stars.

"I don't think you give the same treatment.

"How much time do you give a coach? It depends on the owners, what they want, but if you listen to the fans, you don't have a lot of time because they want to win, and I understand them because they are used to winning and they want to still win."
