Manchester United might face a formidable task in persuading Sporting Club de Portugal’s manager, Rúben Amorim, to take over as their new head coach if he is their preferred choice to replace Erik ten Hag, suggests journalist Sofia Oliveira. She believes that Amorim could be hesitant to take such a significant step considering the current predicament at Old Trafford.
Erik ten Hag is currently grappling with mounting pressure following Manchester United’s worst season start in over six decades.
Last season’s successes, which included winning the Carabao Cup and securing a top-four finish, have been overshadowed by a string of disappointing performances and losses in both the league and cup competitions, intensifying the scrutiny on the Dutch manager.
Criticisms are directed at the team’s playing style, or the lack thereof, and the effectiveness of his recent transfer dealings, especially given the substantial backing from the club’s leadership in the transfer windows
