United’s choice to retain Ten Hag followed a tough Premier League season, characterized by inconsistency and unfulfilled hopes. Mainoo eagerly anticipates further growth under the Dutch coach. His journey in recent months has been truly remarkable; at only 19 years old, he has firmly established himself in Manchester United’s first team and earned a spot on the England squad. This rapid rise underscores the young midfielder’s commitment and the faith Ten Hag has in him.

Mainoo expressed his contentment about building with Ten Hag, emphasizing the reassurance of knowing their manager for the upcoming season. “He’s already secured two trophies, and hopefully, there will be more,” Mainoo added gratefully.
Looking ahead to England’s next Euro 2024 group stage match against Denmark, where he may face Manchester United teammates Rasmus Hojlund and Christian Eriksen, Mainoo praised them both. “Rasmus is young like me, so I’m always learning from him, and I try to pick up tips from Christian,” he noted. Despite this camaraderie, Mainoo acknowledged the need to set friendships aside and compete for a win if he plays on Thursday. His readiness to contribute, whether starting or as a substitute, reflects his professional approach, recognizing the tough competition within the squad, especially in midfield with players like Jude Bellingham vying for positions. “I’m prepared to play my part, be it from the bench or from kickoff. There are outstanding midfielders in the squad, both in the Premier League and abroad, such as Jude,” Mainoo emphasized, underscoring his commitment to training hard and being ready when needed.
