Carragher was also impressed with the classiness that Ten Hag showed following the defeat to Benfica. He added: “I was watching him at the end when the whistle went and I really liked the way he conducted himself.
“His players were frustrated, but he shook the hand of every official, he stopped one of his own players who was trying to get at the official, all emotional, screaming and shouting. He shook hands with all the opposition and he had a nice bit of class about him because you can’t always win.
“He plays really good football, seems a good character and he’s built two teams at Ajax that have done really well and that’s what Manchester United need now, someone to build a team again.”
