Luke Shaw reveals ambitious aims for Man United next season
Luke Shaw outlines ambitious aims for next season as full-back highlights key difference under Erik ten Hag.
Manchester United “are coming back” under Erik Ten Hag, according to Luke Shaw, who also underlined his team’s lofty goals for the next season.
Under the leadership of the Dutch strategist who took over at the start of the season, the Red Devils have significantly improved. After winning the Carabao Cup in February, they are one victory away from qualifying for the Champions League and one behind Arsenal’s record of 14 FA Cup victories.
Shaw said that the team’s “intensity” has increased under the new management by a few notches and attributed Ten Hag’s influence to their improving trajectory this season.
“I think teams around us can definitely see that United are coming back. First season under the new manager there is always going to be a bit of transition. It’s clear to see what he has brought in and how he has changed the way we think, the way we play,” he told Sky Sports.
“I think he wants to bring a lot of intensity. I think everything he wants the team to do is high intensity, he wants us to be aggressive, on the front foot, pressing as high as possible. With the ball he has made us better, we are definitely a threat on the ball,” the left-back added.
Shaw thinks United should build on their success from this year and set bold goals to win both the Premier League and the Champions League.
“It’s clear to see we’re going in the right direction. I think like I touched on before, we have to be challenging for the title with this team. With the direction this manager is going under, I’m sure we are going to make new, big signings this summer. Hope we can get them in as soon as possible so they are in for pre-season. Our aim at the beginning of next season has to be winning the Premier League and the Champions League. That’s how we’ve got to think from now on,” he stated.
Ten Hag’s team will try to seal automatic Champions League qualifying for the following season with a draw against Chelsea in the Premier League on Thursday.
