Sabitzer speaks on move

Sabitzer explained: “Sometimes in life you have to make quick and important decisions.

“From the moment I heard about this opportunity I knew it was right for me. I am a competitive player; I want to win and help the club achieve its aims this season. 

“I feel that I am at my peak as a player, and that I can contribute a lot of experience and energy to the squad. I am excited to start with my new team-mates and manager and to show my qualities to Manchester United fans.”

Erik ten Hag wanted to sign a midfielder with Christian Eriksen suffering an injury which will keep him out until April at the earliest.

In Sabitzer, he is signing a high-energy player with an eye for goal, who fits Ten Hag’s work ethic. It is a move which could end up making the difference between winning silverware, and not, at the end of the season.
