Ten Hag sacked: Manchester United boss informed he ‘will not last’ as Ratcliffe’sees’ harsh reality of Dutchman’s inadequacies

According to teamtalk, Erik ten Hag has been informed that he will not be able to continue as Manchester United manager next season, despite Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s knowledge of his major flaws and the Dutchman’s bold prediction of bringing Champions League football back to Old Trafford. The Red Devils made significant progress in the Dutchman’s first season as manager, winning the Carabao Cup, making the FA Cup final, and, most importantly, finishing third in the Premier League.

However, little has gone as planned for Manchester United this season, with Ten Hag appearing to jump from one problem to the next. He has now lost 28 of his 100 games in charge, including 11 defeats in this season’s Premier League alone. To put his record into context, Jose Mourinho only lost 29 of his 144 matches as manager before being fired.

This season’s run of form, which includes an embarrassing early elimination from the Champions League, has put pressure on Ten Hag, and our exclusive update last week claimed the Dutchman was a dead man walking at Old Trafford, with many around the club expecting him to leave and several key players already giving up on him.

When the axe falls remains to be seen, but it is largely believed to occur in the summer, when United will know if they have secured a Champions League return and the general direction Ten Hag is heading the club. However, with United behind Aston Villa by 11 points in fourth place, talk has begun to spread about a number of high-profile replacements.

Indeed, Zinedine Zidane has been mooted as his replacement, but the France great appears to have ruled that out, leaving minority stakeholder Sir Jim Ratcliffe and his new sporting director Dan Ashworth to consider a variety of alternative candidates.

Julen Lopetegui and Graham Potter look to be the finest candidates to take over as manager, with both being highly regarded by Ashworth as he prepares to formally begin his tenure at Old Trafford. In any case, former Liverpool midfielder Jason McAteer believes a new manager will be appointed this summer, with the former Republic of Ireland player believing Ratcliffe will not have overlooked Ten Hag’s dismal record against the best sides in the Premier League.
