What is Erik ten Hag’s coaching philosophy & tactics?

Erik ten Hag prefers his side to keep possession of the ball. He is aggressive and appears to be in command of the game, since he has a lot of possession. He has shown open admiration for Guardiola and claimed that his philosophies have influenced his coaching mentality.

” In learned a lot from Guardiola,” Ten Hag said in February 2019. “His philosophy is sensational, what he did in Barcelona, Bayern and now with Manchester City, that attacking and attractive style sees him win a lot. “Bayern have become my club. Since Pep, football in Germany is different, I looked at almost every training back then, and I took a lot of methodical lessons on how to transfer his philosophy to the pitch. 

“I want to have possession and hurt the opponent. It’s about possession, about movement, about vertical attacking patterns, about pressing, wingers moving into the middle to make room for the full-backs. Everyone is attacking, everyone is defending. It’s this structure that I’ve tried to implement with Ajax.”

Ten Hag’s favoured formation was a 4-4-2 with a diamond in midfield throughout the early years of his coaching tenure before switching to a 4-3-3.

Now, he prefers a 4-2-3-1 formation, which will be familiar to United’s current players because it’s the same system that former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer utilized and that interim manager Ralf Rangnick has also belatedly decided on.

Ten Hag also likes to pay attention to the tiniest details, such as the length of grass on the pitch.

“Behind every training session, there was an idea,” Marnix Kolder, Go Ahead’s captain at the time, told the Independent.

“He makes every player better. Tactical, physical. Erik left nothing to chance. He was prepared for every opponent, down to the last detail.”

“Every morning he’d go to the pitch to see if the grass was high enough,” added retired midfielder Sjoerd Overgoor.

Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool’s manager, holds him in high regard.

“Erik [ten Hag] is rightly regarded as one of the most exciting coaching talents in world football at the moment because of the work he does with Ajax,” Klopp said in December 2020. 

“Of course, it is a wonderful club – one of the stellar names of European football – but in this moment it is clear they have outstanding leadership of the organisation and Erik is a big part of that.”
