As rumors of a long-term transfer of the team continue to spread, Marcel Sabitzer has stated that he is “very proud” to be a member of Manchester United.
The Austrian international has made 16 appearances for Erik ten Hag’s team, making three goals and one assist. He joined the Red Devils on loan from Bayern Munich in January.
The 29-year-old is reportedly wanted by Man United this summer on a permanent basis, and Sabitzer has expressed his joy at having the opportunity to play for the 20-time English champions.
According to Sabitzer, “I’ve already had a lot of experiences in my career, including Bayern Munich.”. “Everything in this place is bigger. Even more individuals care about you.
“Manchester United has people in a frenzy. At Old Trafford, you can sense it. I can only conclude by saying that I like it here and that I’m glad I was able to join the club. “.
In the midst of transfer rumors, Sabitzer said he was “very proud” to be at Man United.
Sabitzer praised Casemiro as well as the caliber of the Old Trafford midfielders.
“He (Casemiro) is a seasoned competitor who has excelled in every competition at the highest level. He has done it multiple times, the Austrian continued.
Because he is a standout player and keeps the team together, there is no need to discuss his value. He commands respect on the field. We currently have an extremely strong midfield, in my opinion. We are in this circumstance as a result. “.
Sabitzer has also admitted that he has not yet spoken to Thomas Tuchel, the new Bayern manager who took over the reigns of the German champions at the end of March.
“Obviously, there hasn’t been any contact to date. On their respective tasks, everyone is concentrating. We’ll analyze it later and have a calm discussion about where it’s going,” he continued.
Sabitzer has appeared nine times in the Premier League since moving to Old Trafford, including 86 minutes of Sunday’s 1-0 victory over Aston Villa.
The seasoned midfielder’s contract at Allianz Arena has two more years left to run, but Bayern is reportedly willing to let him leave this summer for a reasonably low fee.
Sabitzer hinted last month that he would be open to relocating to Manchester United permanently.
The Austrian is anticipated to play once more for Ten Hag’s team on Thursday night when the top-four contenders travel to Brighton and Hove Albion.
Jimmy Murphy’s statue is unveiled at Old Trafford, and Erik ten Hag praises him
After Jimmy Murphy’s statue was unveiled at Old Trafford, Erik Ten Hag paid tribute to the former Manchester United coach.
Following the 1958 Munich air disaster, which resulted in the deaths of 23 people, including eight of Sir Matt Busby’s players, Murphy, who had previously served as coach of the Busby Babes, took over as United’s manager.
Murphy, who managed Wales in addition to his duties managing United, was not on the fatal flight because Sir Matt instructed him to stay behind and oversee a World Cup qualifier in Cardiff.
Just three months after the tragedy, which left Sir Matt fighting for his life with severe injuries, assistant manager Murphy led United out against Bolton at Wembley in the FA Cup final.
In the event that he successfully completes the takeover, Sir Jim Ratcliffe has already made a hint that he might sell the Manchester United star.
The club’s 1968 European Cup final victory over Benfica at Wembley, which ended with a 4-1 victory for United over Benfica, was the club’s crowning achievement under Sir Matt, who died in 1989.
Ten Hag said of the Murphy statue outside the Stretford End: “I think it’s very good the club gives so much honor to the key figure in Manchester United history.
He is a symbol of youth, of development for young people, as well as of tenacity and grit, which are the standards for Manchester United.
A statue outside of Old Trafford honors Jimmy Murphy.
“After Munich, when the manager and many players left, the club was led by this individual.
“The club was devastated, but they recovered, and this person was instrumental in that. He deserves an honor for doing this, so it’s great.
The Jimmy Murphy Center, the Jimmy Murphy Young Player of the Year Award, and now his statue are all fantastic additions to the training facility. ”.
