Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag statements may have put more pressure on him been “sacked”



Erik ten Hag is under a lot of pressure, and the City manager may have liked the extra push.

The rest of the season, before the Sir Jim Ratcliffe and INEOS era starts in earnest this summer, Erik ten Hag is pretty much on trial for his job. After a terrible first half of the season, the Manchester United manager’s back is against the wall, and he may have had too high of hopes for the next few months.

Ten Hag gave people faith that he could finally get the Red Devils out of their rut they’ve been in since Sir Alex Ferguson retired last season.

The club’s third-place finish in the Premier League and win in the Carabao Cup were good signs to start his reign, which makes this season’s drop even more disappointing.

Ten Hag is now being closely watched, and this is made worse by the fact that INEOS might want to be brutal and put their own man in charge of football for their first full season in charge.

United has been playing their best this season, winning four games in a row and going six games without a loss before their trip to Luton Town on Sunday.

But the big teams at Old Trafford are still six points behind Tottenham Hotspur in fourth place and five points behind Aston Villa in fifth place, even though Villa won 2-1 at Villa Park last weekend.

Ten Hag’s has almost completely stopped having injuries. Lisandro Martinez and Mason Mount are the only big-name stars who are still out.

The Dutchman has said that the club must now aim for at least a top-four place to keep up the standards he has tried to set.

“First, I don’t think it’s right to say that we’ve turned a corner. We’re still not there. Ten Hag said, “We are still not in a position to say that.”

“We are back in the race, but we are still not where we want to be as a club, which is at least in the top four. We need to catch up, and we are.”

“But I believe we are now moving in the right direction.” I was always sure we would once the guys were ready.

“I knew that this team, along with my coaching staff, players, and the way we work together, had what it takes to play for the top four.”

“Of course, over the season, we had to prove it – but I was always convinced we would.”

Ten Hag may have hurt himself with his words if United’s progress fails all of a sudden and the end of the season is disappointing.

But there is hope in the M16 air that his luck is changing just in time for a few important months in his short-lived repair.
