Erik ten Hag tells Man Utd to get him a pad to call home - unlike Jose Mourinho
Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag is demanding that the club set him up in a proper home ahead of the new season so he doesn't have to live out of a suitcase like former manager Jose Mourinho.The Dutchman is planning a lengthy stay in Manchester and wants everything to begin without a hitch as he looks to turn the club's fortunes around, following their worst ever finish in the Premier League.It's understood that he's been very forthright with his bosses, handing them a long list of requirements for him to be able to carry out his job properly - including specifications on where he lives.Funnily enough, the home Ten Hag wants - a £2 million luxury penthouse in Salford - is just yards away from Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola's, which could bring a whole new meaning to the 'Noisy Neighbours' tag Sir Alex Ferguson famously thrust upon City back in 2009.A United insider revealed: "Ten Hag feels it is important to be immersed in the local culture and has plenty of interests away from football."He knows Pep very well from their days working together at Bayern Munich and will be close enough to pop round for a cup of sugar if he needs it!"If Ten Hag and Guardiola had a movie night together what do you think they'd watch? Let us know in the comments section. During his two-and-a-half year spell in charge of United, Mourinho opted against buying a house and spent his entire tenure in the Lowry Hotel, leading fans to question his long-term commitment to the club.Ten Hag is keen to avoid the same mistake and wants to properly immerse himself into the hustle-and-bustle of Manchester - just as he did in Amsterdam, where he reportedly lived above a supermarket near the city centre.
Pep Guardiola gives telling reaction when Ederson says he is Man City's best penalty taker
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola appears to have given Ederson the seal of approval after the Brazilian audaciously claimed he was the club's best penalty taker.City's players and staff spent Monday evening parading around Manchester city centre on an open-top bus after sealing their fourth Premier League title in five seasons with victory over Aston Villa on Sunday, with thousands of fans lining the streets to join the party and catch a glimpse of the trophy as the squad drank and smoked themselves silly.Towards the end of the parade, the bus emptied onto a stage where City's semi-intoxicated stars got the chance to get on the microphone, and Ederson was asked if he'd ever take a penalty for the club."Of course, I am the best taker of penalties [at the club]. If Pep says it’s okay then I will take one probably," the Brazilian said, prompted an approving nod from Guardiola.City have had an abysmal record from the penalty spot in recent years, with Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling, Kevin De Bruyne, Ilkay Gundogan, Riyad Mahrez and Gabriel Jesus all missing from 12 yards in the past three seasons, and at the start of the season, Ederson insisted that he'd be happy to take one if he was ever asked.The 28-year-old is one of the most technically-gifted goalkeepers in the world and boasts an unrivalled passing range, but could his ability to knock fabulous 80-yard through-balls really translate to penalty-taking? I guess there's only one way to find out.
