Manchester United’s strategy to replace Erik ten Hag amid their recent struggles has been disclosed in a recent report.
Following the disappointing 1-0 home defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League, which resulted in a loss of £28 million, Manchester United is dealing with back-to-back defeats, including a 3-0 loss to Bournemouth last weekend.
The pressure is mounting on 53-year-old Ten Hag, who took charge in April 2022.
With incoming investor Sir Jim Ratcliffe meeting with a manager for a potential shock appointment at Old Trafford, the plan to replace Ten Hag has surfaced.
As per The Sun, Ratcliffe has held discussions with Graham Potter and favors him as the potential replacement in case Ten Hag is relieved of his duties.
Potter has been available since his departure from Chelsea in April and was previously linked to managerial positions at Rangers and Nice.
Potter gained recognition for his managerial achievements at Brighton, where he secured their highest finish in the Premier League, ending the season in ninth place.
Ratcliffe, a keen admirer of the English manager, had expressed interest in having him at Nice.
Meanwhile, Ten Hag faces a challenging task as Manchester United prepares to resume their league campaign against Liverpool on Sunday.
Following the European defeat, Ten Hag emphasized the need for consistency and improvement, both from himself and the players.
In his post-match remarks, Ten Hag stated, “We know we want to be more consistent.
Me as a manager, I have to improve the team, help the team progress, guide them, and the players have to take responsibility. We have to do that together.”
