Weghorst feels confident in his performance After 18 straight starts for Manchester United.



Wout Weghorst believes he is performing well at Manchester United after starting 18 consecutive games under Erik ten Hag.

The 30-year-old joined on loan from Burnley in a surprise January deal and has quickly established himself as an important member of Ten Hag’s squad.

Weghorst has only scored two goals since his arrival, but he helped United win the Carabao Cup last month.

His boss has also praised the 6ft 6in striker for his unselfish work for the squad.

Weghorst told The Sun that his ongoing participation on the team demonstrates Ten Hag’s confidence in his work.

‘That’s a lot of matches, and it shows how much faith people have in me,’ Weghorst remarked. ‘It also demonstrates that I am contributing to the team’s success.

‘That’s why I came here: to contribute and help the team win titles.

‘We now have one. With the Europa League and FA Cup yet to come, we aim to finish as high as possible in the table and surely in the top four for the Champions League.

‘So it simply demonstrates that I’m a part of it. And being a part of our achievement and being appreciated is a nice thing.’

Despite Ten Hag’s praise and a string of starts, Weghorst has been heavily criticized throughout his tenure at Manchester United.

Pundits have criticized Weghorst’s choice to play him as both a number 10 and a striker.

Weghorst’s performances for United may win him a starting spot for Netherlands in their next Euro 2024 qualifiers.

Ronald Koeman, who has returned to the role, feels Weghorst is capable of starting up front rather than coming off the bench.

‘He is not a Plan B,’ Koeman stated, according to Voetbal International.

‘It was the reason I chose Luuk de Jong over Wout during my first term.

‘But, Wout has matured to the point where he is a viable possibility. ‘I view him as a striker, not a ten.’

On Friday, Holland will face France in their first Euro 2024 qualifier before hosting Gibraltar on March 27.
