On April 17, Beijing time, the British media “Mirror” reported that the incoming Manchester United coach ten Hag is forming his coaching team, and Van Persie may join his team.
The Mirror says Ten Hag has decided to bring his Ajax assistant Mitchell van der Garg to Manchester United, nine years after the Dutchman suffered a heart attack on the sidelines . In 2013, Mitchell van der Gaag fell ill during a game against former club Maltimer while he was coaching Belenenses in Lisbon. After that, he installed an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator, which also helped Eriksen, who suffered a cardiac arrest at the European Cup, return to the field. For the past three years, van der Garg has become Ten Hag’s right-hand man at Ajax.
Ten Hag is understood to have told United that he wants Van der Garg to be his assistant, not former Manchester United assistant Steve McLaren. Steve McLaren was Sir Alex Ferguson’s assistant when Manchester United won the “Triple Crown” in 1999, and he coached twice at Twente FC in the Netherlands. He has also coached Derby County, the club’s current manager is the Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney.
As such, van der Garg will follow Ten Hag to Old Trafford. Earlier it was revealed that Ten Hag also wanted Van Persie to join his coaching team. At present, Van Persie is working at the Feyenoord youth academy and is taking the pro-level coaching certification. He has not yet decided whether to accept the invitation. Between 2012 and 2015, Van Persie made 105 appearances for Manchester United, scoring 58 goals. Van Persie’s son Shaquille recently signed his first contract with Feyenoord. In addition, he also has to consider the career development of his daughter Tina. While his family situation complicates joining the United coaching staff, Van Persie is interested in returning to work in the Premier League.
Interim Red Devils manager Rangnick will be the team’s adviser after Ten Hag takes over at Manchester United. Ten Hag has previously said he is looking forward to working with Rangnick at Old Trafford.
