Tyrell Malacia reveals how Erik ten Hag persuaded him to join Manchester United

Tyrell Malacia has adjusted well to his summer transfer to  Manchester United 

United made the first signing of the Erik ten Hag era when they acquired the Dutch defender from Feyenoord.

On the left side of a new-look defense that also includes Raphael Varane, Lisandro Martinez, and Diogo Dalot, the 23-year-old has also impressed.

Malacia stated that chats with Ten Hag, whose Ajax team he faced frequently in the Eredivisie, influenced his decision to transfer to Old Trafford.

Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: “I knew him because I played against him in Holland. 

“Actually before I came here, I spoke with him on the phone and had some good talks with him. It felt good for me. You see what he wants.

“I think his vision is quite clear. Now, as both individuals and as a team, we have to develop that. It was a big decision to make so to know the club and the manager both want me, that was important for me.”

Malacia was also asked which players he modeled his game after as a child, and he cites a former Manchester United fullback as his inspiration.

He added: “I always looked towards players with the same style as me, so obviously it was (Patrice) Evra for me. I really loved to watch him.”
