Jamie Carragher responds to criticism from Ten Hag over Man United

 Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has responded to Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag’s criticism of his tactical analysis about the Red Devils.

Carragher had criticized Man United after their Premier League defeat to Fulham last week.

The former defender pointed out several tactical aspects during the analysis.

But Ten Hag responded to Carragher before Man United’s FA Cup fifth-round win against Nottingham Forest a few days ago.

Ten Hag said: “First of all, some analysts are very objective in their comments, very good advice, some are very subjective. Jamie Carragher from the first moment on has criticized and now he wants to make his point.

“Probably in the first half an hour, yes, he had a point. Fulham in their midfield set-up surprised us a little bit and then we have to find the solutions. After half an hour we found the solutions.”

However, Carragher, has now responded to Ten Hag, writing in his coloum for The Telegraph, “My analysis on Sky’s Monday Night Football last week was intended to demonstrate why United are so inconsistent.

“Manager Erik ten Hag had a go back for what he perceived as unfair criticism. He felt I had been critical from day one.

“Actually, it was from game two when his United team lost at Brentford – but it was directed at the players, not the manager. But fair play to him for saying what he did. I have nothing but respect and admiration for managers who defend themselves and their teams.”
