Ten Hag sack: The boss of Man Utd delivered a critical assessment of his play and declared, “Time’s up.”

Erik ten Hag has been told that his days as Manchester United’s manager are numbered after a critical assessment of his stay at Old Trafford and coaching abilities.

The Red Devils have undoubtedly deteriorated this season after finishing in third place and winning the EFL Cup the previous year. Manchester United has lost nine of its first eighteen games across all competitions. They have suffered three losses in the Champions League and are currently bottom of Group A with two games left.

With Sir Jim Ratcliffe expected to purchase a 25% stake in Manchester United, a momentous change is under way.

Richard Arnold, the CEO, is the first casualty of those operating behind the scenes. Football director John Murtough is allegedly “vulnerable” and might follow, according to The Telegraph.

Ratcliffe will confer with legendary Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson while making critical decisions. With six contenders already in the running, Ferguson might get the opportunity to select Murtough’s successor.

The Sun went on to say that Ratcliffe is willing to sanction a team “reset,” which would surprise the Man Utd players.
There have been rumors that Ten Hag will be sacked, despite the majority of sources saying the Dutchman will be spared.

But renowned analyst and former England international Jermaine Jenas feels Ratcliffe should unleash Ten Hag with a vicious streak.

Jenas delivered an acerbic assessment of Ten Hag’s reign, criticizing both his tactical and recruitment abilities, according to the Manchester Evening News.

“I don’t see players who have given up; I see players who don’t know what to do,” Jenas said. There is a lack of cohesiveness.

“I don’t think Ten Hag is enough capable. His managerial style doesn’t seem to have anything that would make me think he’s the best person to guide them in the right direction.

That’s a major one for me: I’m not sure what his plan is based on the guys he is buying. He is just buying what he is comfortable with, not what is best for Manchester United.

Positions of Ratcliffe and Brailsford regarding the Ten Hag bag

It’s widely believed that Man Utd’s hiring practises have been far worse since Sir Alex Ferguson departed the team a little over ten years ago.

Ratcliffe intends to restructure the team’s transfer strategy, and it appears like Ten Hag made several mistakes based on his purchases.

Despite spending a hefty £55 million, Mason Mount has made little impact. It’s only been a year, but Christian Eriksen and Casemiro are already showing alarming signs of deterioration.

The £72 million forward Rasmus Hojlund has yet to make an impact in the Premier League.

Ten Hag’s boss at United is unlikely to be removed anytime soon, even though Jenas’s scathing criticism of him may have had some merit.

Ratcliffe and Sir Dave Brailsford, the head of INEOS, “have been impressed by the job done by Ten Hag since he took over as manager in 2022,” according to an ESPN update on Ten Hag’s situation on November 13.
