Erik ten Hag to hold peace talks with Sky Sports News reporter Gary Cotterill – Reuters


Erik ten Hag is expected to have free-to-air talks with Sky Sports News reporter Gary Cotterill.

According to The Daily Mail, Ten Hag contacted the reporter in a bid to mend their broken relationship after a series of confrontations.

Those clashes were highlighted last week when Cotterill was barred from asking questions at Ten Hag’s press conference.

The daily mail‘s Matt Hughes reports that “The Dutchman was still unhappy with Cotterill for suing him for an interview while he was signing autographs on the Ajax training ground last season.”

“A similar incident occurred when Ten Hag was a guest in United’s final game last season at Crystal Palace before he took charge.”

“Now the United manager wants to move on.”

For his part, Cotterill is said to be open to such discussions and receptive to the United manager’s attempt to mend bridges.

Although the club hierarchy have not explicitly denied any Sky Sports reporters access to club facilities, Hughes says they are unhappy with the criticism leveled at the Glazer family in recent weeks.

“Former United captain Gary Neville has been relentless in his criticism of the Glazers.”

“Sky Sports News aired several segments ahead of Liverpool’s visit showing how much money the American owners have taken from the club.”

The Glazer family have questioned the balance and intentions behind Sky Sports reporting on their affairs.

United fans are hoping Sky Sports will intensify their reporting of the Glazers’ mismanagement of the club even further.
