Erik Ten Hag Super Star Reject International Duty Move To Focus On Manchester United Career

Zidane Iqbal of Manchester United has been left out of Iran’s squad for the upcoming international break.

Iqbal will not be joining his countrymen for the Jordan International Tournament, preferring to stay and focus on United.

The 19-year-old is not only one of Manchester United‘s top prospects, but also one of his country’s. He has appeared in two senior competitive matches for Iran.

With his inclusion on United’s Europa League B list this season, Iqbal will almost certainly get the chance to impress Erik ten Hag, who is said to be a big fan of his.

The player came off the bench in the Red Devils’ 2-0 Europa League victory over Sheriff Tiraspol in Moldova.

Mahdi Karim, the managing director of Iran’s national team, provided an important update on Iqbal, which will undoubtedly endear him to fans even more.

“Zidane Iqbal and Ali Al Hammadi have apologized for not joining the national team,” Karim said.

“This is due to their desire to concentrate on their clubs.”

Iqbal was one of the preseason’s breakout stars, mostly playing in a pivot with academy teammate Charlie Savage.

He was particularly adept at passing and close ball control. His ball control and ability in tight spaces are two other qualities that stood out during United’s tour.

Earlier, it was reported that Ten Hag had decided to keep Iqbal at the club rather than loan him out, pending a decision in January.

What is certain is that the Iran international is extremely talented, and it is only a matter of time before he is given the opportunity to demonstrate his abilities. His determination to remain at Carrington is a step in the right direction.
