He further added, “We are very happy for him and, of course, a little bit proud. I would say very proud. It’s great for Manchester United’s academy to produce such a young player for the national team. That is a big compliment for the whole club.”

Regarding managing the hype surrounding Mainoo, Ten Hag affirmed, “Yes, but we have discussed this before, and so far, he handles it very well. If he crosses the line, yes, of course, I, as a manager, we as coaches, will interfere. But so far, it’s not necessary because he enjoys football, he wants to win, he wants to give his best every day because he wants to improve.”

He concluded, “As I say, he just wants to have fun on the pitch. For him, it’s fun to play dominant, to dictate the game, and to win the game.”
