SAD NEWS: Erik ten Hag is “Sack” And his replacement has been revealed…….

A former Chelsea manager and a La Liga veteran are strong contenders to succeed under-fire Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag.

Manchester City, United’s local rivals, easily defeated United on Sunday despite a miserable performance from United.

Erling Haaland’s brace and Phil Foden’s goal completed a convincing 3-0 victory for Pep Guardiola’s team.

Ten Hag is now under pressure to perform better at Old Trafford in light of the outcome.

Zinedine Zidane, a former Real Madrid manager, is the 4/1 favourite to succeed Ten Hag, according to Odds Checker (odds are accurate as of writing).

During his managerial tenure, Zidane guided Madrid to three consecutive Champions League titles.

Julian Nagelsmann, the current manager of Germany and a former Bayern Munich player, is the second favourite at 5/1.

Graham Potter, the former manager of Brighton and Chelsea, is the third favourite to succeed Ten Hag and is available at 10/1.

In addition to the aforementioned three, the following players are also on the list: Mauricio Pochettino (20/1); Diego Simeone (20/1); Antonio Conte (16/1) and Gareth Southgate (16/1).

United are currently in eighth place in the Premier League table after being humiliated by City, eight points behind fourth-place Liverpool, and eleven points behind fifth-place Arsenal.

He said: “The three games before we won, and the spirit is very good, so I think we are on the way up.

“The start was difficult but we are on the way up. I am sure when we have some injured players coming back then our side will be stronger. We have to be patient.”

Ten Hag added: “When you see the first half it is toe-to-toe and just the penalty changes the game, but even then we could have returned in the game with the shot of Scott McTominay just before half-time.

“For chances it was very toe-to-toe and also in the previous games against them in the FA Cup final and January it was very close. So the probability that we could win was there in all the games.”

Erik ten Hag said he will “never” be able to introduce an Ajax style of play to Manchester United in a post-match interview on Sunday afternoon.

The Dutch manager, who was well-known in Amsterdam for employing a high-pressing style, favoured his Ajax squad to play attacking football. Ten Hag wanted his teams to press as a unit from the front in addition to encouraging playing out from the back.

That mindset quickly spread to United after they defeated Liverpool 4-0 at the Rajamangala Stadium in Thailand during the previous season’s preseason. Their ferocity was evident both in and out of possession.

Ten Hag’s squad did, however, lead the team to a third-place finish the previous season.
