Ten Hag praises Tagliafico to heaven at Ajax: ‘I am very grateful to him’

At the end of his Ajax period, Erik ten Hag praised Nicolás Tagliafico. Just like Ten Hag, the Argentine started at Ajax in January 2018, which caused the two to experience a lot together.
Tagliafico was actually always assured of a base place under Ten Hag, until this season. “He wasn‘t a regular starter for a while, but you can see that the width of the selection also brought us the scale in the end”, says Ten Hag after Vitesse-Ajax (2-2) at the press conference about the left-back. “By that I also mean the quality in the breadth, there is internal competition and that belongs in a top team.”
Then Ten Hag praises Tagliafico. “Nico has a great character and never whines. Of course, he was dissatisfied when he wasn’
t playing, but he always gave one hundred percent on the workouts. If he had to, he stood there, fought for Ajax and brought quality. With that, he has made a very big contribution to the championship. Let me just quote: the decisive cross in the game against Feyenoord.”
“I think he‘s such a great person,” continues the expectant manager of Manchester United. “As a person, he is completely okay, but he also had a great contribution as a football player. From my early days to my end here, he’s been there. I am extremely grateful to him for the cooperation, but also for what he delivered on behalf of Ajax.”
