Tactical Analysis: Manchester United’s David De Gea, Bruno Fernandez, Van De Beek Pre-Ten Hag analysisahead of next season

David De Gea Pre-Ten Hag Analysis

Spain’s coach, Luis Enrique offered words on David De Gea’s distribution and lack of pro-active sweeping off his line. Never a truer word spoken. It’s now a litmus test for this new iteration of Man Utd’s hierarchy to see if they will support Ten Hag’s vision with a similar line of thinking.

The chipped pass from your Goalkeeper into a full-back/winger or the pass into your defensive midfielder to break thru the first line of a press, are both so key when implementing a possession-based system. Goalkeepers who can’t pull them off consistently are not adequate at the highest level. A problem to Ten Hag’s system if David De Gea stays.


Van de Beek and Bruno Fernandez Pre-Ten Hag Analysis

Van de Beek narratives are so tiring because nobody understands what type of player he is. He’s a #10, a raumdeuter, a space invader who combines and interchanges with short passing in between the lines. Therefore, his competition is Bruno Fernandes, and not McTominay and co.

The problem with that is he’s not on the level of Bruno Fernandes who also has an insane availability record. Therefore, he’s a back up to Bruno. Nothing more, nothing less. He’s a good squad player to have but is no better or different than a Jesse Lingard. It’s such a boring saga.

And don’t even try and suggest the possibility of Van de Beek and Bruno Fernandez playing together in Ten Hag’s 4-3-3. Both of them roam everywhere to get on the ball and to find space. The midfield would be dearth of natural second phase passing and would be destroyed in defensive transition too.

But Van de Beek tactical intelligence and off the ball movement against low blocks is levels above Lingard’s, and Bruno Fernandez’s suitability to a Ten Hag system is as questionable as De Gea’s. But he should be seen as a 10 going into next season.
