“When he plays, the team wins. That already gives a message about how well he is doing,” said Ten Hag, in a press conference previewing the game.
“I can do better, I see room for improvement. For example, and I think I know this, we would like it to be more direct and more involved. But, as I said, the team does better if it insists on pitches.
“That’s a good thing, it’s a shame to build further. I think an improvement has been made. In these three first [league] games, he scored three goals. Now the scorton against Everton, the scorton against Charlton, so that also has an impact. But with resources, with talent, even more is possible. But, as I said, I think they have [made] a good contribution to the team.”
