There’s a significant update on the future of Manchester United’s manager, Erik ten Hag, following a challenging period for the Red Devils.
The recent Champions League defeat to FC Copenhagen added to the pressure, leading to speculation about Ten Hag’s potential departure.
Despite calls for his dismissal, reports indicate that Ten Hag is not currently facing the sack at Old Trafford.
Paul Scholes, a former United player, suggests sticking with Ten Hag, acknowledging the challenges the team has faced, including injuries.
While there are rumors that incoming investor Sir Jim Ratcliffe plans to replace Ten Hag with Brighton & Hove Albion’s Roberto De Zerbi, reporter Dean Jones, speaking to GiveMeSport, shares a different perspective.
Jones believes that United is standing firm in their support of Ten Hag, and he doesn’t see the manager feeling an imminent threat to his job security.
Contrary to the narrative surrounding Ten Hag’s potential dismissal, Jones reveals that the manager feels comfortable in his role at the club.
Despite external pressures, Ten Hag seems focused on the team’s performance rather than saving his own job.
The recent game against Copenhagen, where a controversial red card disrupted the game plan, raises questions about attributing blame solely to the manager.
Examining Ten Hag’s overall record at Old Trafford, despite a challenging start to the season with nine losses in various competitions, his performance has notable positives.
He achieved the joint quickest manager status in reaching 50 wins in the club’s history.
With an average of two points per game and a successful first year, including winning silverware and securing a top-four finish, the case for giving Ten Hag more time to navigate the current challenges becomes apparent.
