Manchester United lack an identity under Erik Ten Hag

According to sportskeeda, Manchester United icon Rio Ferdinand has spoken out against Erik ten Hag’s impending dismissal and a lack of a defined playing style. The Red Devils have had a dismal 2023-24 season thus far. They finished at the bottom of their UEFA Champions League group and were ousted from the EFL Cup. They are sixth in the Premier League rankings and have advanced to the FA Cup fifth round.

Ferdinand continued: “Man United just don’t have a style of play at the moment, where you go ‘that is them’. “Look at all the best teams, you know how they play. [Manchester] City, [Ange] Postecoglou-– you know how his team is going to play. [Mikel] Arteta – you know how his team is going to play.”

Ten Hag has won 59 of his 98 matches in charge, but it is the number of defeats that leave his position looking perilous. Earlier in the week, another pundit in Gabby Agbonlahor described Ten Hag as ‘delusional’ if he genuinely believed United had the qualities needed to finish in the top four.

Speaking to talkSPORT while analysing their performance against Marco Silva’s side, the former Villa striker claimed: “Have you ever heard someone more delusional? When a manager is delusional like Ten Hag is sounding now, it is time to move him on.

“Come out and be honest, your team were dreadful. Every player through the whole 90 minutes. Eighth home defeat this season. ‘The team showed character to grab the equaliser.’ You winding me up?”

Agbonlahor added: “United have been getting away with bad performances and still somehow winning games, but today they got exactly what they deserved. Manchester United today were a disgrace to that football club.”
