Tyrell Malacia has detailed the strategic and tactical instructions that were given to him by Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United.

Malacia was announced as the Red Devils’ first signing of the 2022 summer transfer window earlier this month.

Malacia signed a four-year contract with United that is expected to cost €15 million plus €2 million in add-ons.

Since then, the full-back has adapted well and is starting to accrue playing time for the Red Devils at left-back.

Earlier this week, the Dutchman started for United against Crystal Palace and was crucial in setting up a well-worked Anthony Martial goal.

Malacia got to the edge of the Palace box before passing to fellow full-back Diogo Dalot, who found Martial with an excellent looping ball.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Malacia admitted that he was being asked to fill in as an extra midfielder. “Yeah, that’s what the coach wants from me and at my former club, I played the same style so for me it’s easier to fit into this system.”

Malacia also described Ten Hag’s frequent contact with him in the run-up to his move to United: “I spoke to him a lot, two or three times,” he said.

“We had some good conversations about football, about myself and about him. Also about how he sees me which was an important thing for me in joining the club.”
