The excess at Man Utd demonstrated a high level of confidence and made a powerful statement in front of the media, despite the fact that coach Erik ten Hag chose to ignore it.
When Erik Ten Hag took over as manager of Manchester United, he brought Tyrell Malacia, an untested player, to Old Trafford as his first first-year player.
Malacia had a strong start to the season, to the point where she was able to convince Luke Shaw to replace her in the starting lineup.
Malacia, on the other hand, was relegated to the bench after the team’s 3-6 loss to Manchester City and did not play in any of the team’s subsequent five Premier League matches.
Since the beginning of the competition, the Dutch defender has made a total of 17 appearances for the Red Devils across all competitions, but he has neither scored nor assisted in any of their games.
Malacia recently shared with the media that she has a great deal of confidence in her ability to regain the main kick. “I just didn’t play well [against City]. In the next game I made a small mistake, and then the manager had to make a choice. All I had to do was make sure that I trained well, and I did it. Ten Hag also told me.
I am very happy because now, I can stand here again. I am very familiar with myself. I had to go back to the fundamentals, and everything started going well again. I am aware that I am competing against myself on this team. I am very happy.
I got off to a good start here, there were a few setbacks, but I know myself very well. I played against Burnley, which is great, and I want to continue starting. I played against Burnley. That’s great, and I want to continue starting.”
At this point in time, Luke Shaw continues to exert his authority over the left-wing corridor at MU. When Diogo Dalot went down with an injury, it opened the door for Aaron Wan-Bissaka to get some playing time on the other wing. Malacia has the potential to be given the opportunity in its entirety if Wan-Bissaka is unable to fulfill Ten Hag’s requirements, despite the fact that this position goes against his forte.
