There’s Van Persie behind Tyrell Malacia’s move to Manchester United


Tyrell Malacia officially join Manchester United. The young defender admitted that he had consulted with Robin van Persie before making that decision.

The 22-year-old footballer was transported to Old Trafford after being redeemed for 13 million pounds sterling from Feyenoord. Malacia has put his signature on a four-year contract with the option of a year extension.

Malacia will follow in the footsteps of Van Persie, who played for the Red Devils for two seasons. The former top Dutch striker was instrumental in MU’s success in winning the 2012/13 Premier League title, the club’s last league title to date.



“I always follow Manchester United because Robin van Persie played there, and he was a Feyenoord player. He was also a young man from Feyenood academy, like me. That’s why I have additional feelings with this club,” Malacia told The Telagraph.

“I talked to him (Van Persie) about the club and the city. About places to live. Also from my childhood friend Tahith Chong, who I played with at Feyenoord, I hear a lot from him.”

“I just arrived at this level so I still have to show what I can do. But I want to reach the highest level and chase it, and I think I can, of course,” continued the Netherlands international.

Then Malacia must win the heart of Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag. At left back, Malacia must compete with Luke Shaw, Brandon Williams, and Alex Telles.

“Mr Ten Hag is a very good coach and also a warm person. So I felt comfortable talking to him and I have a very good relationship with him. That’s important because if all goes well, we will work together for a long time. ,” he continued.

“I’m looking forward to it because I think I can learn a lot from him. He has a good record of improving the performance of individual players, as long as they are ready to work hard.” Tyrell Malacia add.
