Manchester United Manager Erik ten Hag calls for striker signing amid goal woes

Posted : 13 April 2024

Manchester United's manager Erik ten Hag emphasized the necessity of acquiring a new striker to address the team's scoring deficiencies ahead of their upcoming Premier League fixture against Bournemouth. The club's tally of 45 goals this season stands as the lowest among the top 10 teams in the league.


While Rasmus Hojlund, signed for a significant sum in August, contributed with 13 goals across 34 appearances in all competitions, the absence of Anthony Martial due to injury and Marcus Rashford's reduced goal output have highlighted the need for additional attacking options. Although Alejandro Garnacho provided some support with nine goals in 41 appearances, the team's attacking depth remains a concern.


Ten Hag, having previously ruled out a striker signing in the January transfer window due to financial constraints, now acknowledges the importance of bolstering the squad in the upcoming transfer window. He stressed the need for versatility in each position and affirmed ongoing efforts in scouting and planning for potential acquisitions to enhance the team's options.


Expressing confidence in the club's new ownership, ten Hag expressed optimism that they would collaborate effectively to implement the planned structural changes. Despite awaiting further developments from the ownership, he underscored the importance of aligning any signings with the team's strategic playing style and identified player profiles that would complement their approach. Currently, Manchester United sits sixth in the league standings with seven games remaining in the season.
