One condition that could see Erik ten Hag out of Manchester United



One condition that could see Erik ten Hag out of Manchester United

Manchester United head coach, Erik ten Hag, is reportedly considering stepping down from his position under a specific condition, following a tumultuous season for the club.

After a promising start in his debut season, which saw Manchester United clinch the Carabao Cup and secure Champions League qualification, expectations were high for the Dutchman to elevate the team further in the 23/24 season.

With notable signings like Andre Onana, Mason Mount, and Rasmus Hojlund, anticipation was rife for a successful campaign.

However, United’s performance this season has fallen drastically short of expectations. Currently trailing 13 points behind fourth-placed Aston Villa, their Champions League aspirations are dwindling rapidly.

Amidst this downturn, the future of Erik ten Hag at Old Trafford has been cast into uncertainty, with reports suggesting that new investor Sir Jim Ratcliffe is exploring alternatives to replace the Dutchman.

Speculation links names such as Gareth Southgate and Graham Potter with a potential move to the helm of the Red Devils.

Recent developments suggest that ten Hag might consider resigning, provided he doesn’t receive assurances from Ratcliffe and the INEOS team regarding their commitment to him. Furthermore, there’s speculation that Ajax, his former club, could offer him an exit route from Manchester.

Addressing the media ahead of United’s FA Cup semi-final against Coventry City, Erik ten Hag acknowledged the challenge posed by their opponents while hinting at his awareness of the speculation surrounding his future.

He praised Coventry’s manager, a former Manchester United player, and acknowledged their formidable mentality demonstrated in previous matches.
