Ten Hag fired: Dutchman informed that “it’s over” for him at Man Utd. Legend of Liverpool picks Prem manager as the “obvious” replacement.

Roberto De Zerbi, the coach of Brighton, may succeed Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United.

Even though Manchester United defeated Luton Town 1-0 on Saturday, Erik ten Hag is still under fire at the club. Legendary Liverpool player Jamie Oliver has named another Premier League manager as Erik ten Hag’s “blindingly obvious” successor.

The Dutchman led Manchester United to the FA Cup final, a top-three Premier League finish, and the Carabao Cup. Most importantly, this resulted in the return of Champions League football at Old Trafford.

But with Ten Hag having the poorest start to a season in 51 years, not much has gone right for the team this year. And with nine losses in their first eighteen games—their poorest start to a season since 1962–1963, rumors about Ten Hag’s future have started to uncomfortably circulate.

In fact, our exclusive revealed—painfully for Ten Hag—that several senior United players were beginning to doubt the Dutchman’s strategies, substitutions, and transfers. This story was rapidly picked up and expanded upon by several national newspapers.

Since then, United has defeated Fulham and Luton in two Premier League games—matches they were anticipated to win—but only by a score of 1-0 each time.

Crucially, although leading the game twice, they lost to FC Copenhagen 4-3 in the Champions League, incurring the shame. With another loss on matchday five, away at Galatasaray, they have already lost three of their first four games in the competition. As a result, they will be eliminated at the first hurdle.

Ten Hag, on the other hand, keeps fighting. He has urged his team to demonstrate unity and a fighting spirit.

Ten Hag predicted Man Utd’s dismissal, blaming terrible transfers.

What’s important for Ten Hag is that Sir Alex Ferguson, who still has a lot of power at Old Trafford, appears to be behind him.

Still, there are persistent rumors that he is fighting to save his job at Manchester United, despite his performance being well below expectations.

Because of this, a story from last week stated that a former Premier League manager was ready to take over at Manchester United the moment Ten Hag fell from grace.

Though Ten Hag is still being closely examined, the assertion has now appeared to be untrue.

In addition, former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler has criticized Ten Hag for a series of terrible signing choices and is certain that the axe will fall soon.

In his Daily Mirror piece, Fowler stated: “The fact is that Ten Hag bears a great deal of responsibility for the appalling recruitment process.” Similar to how they handled managers like [Jose] Mourinho, they went for the seasoned campaigners, but it didn’t work. Casmiro, who is it?

“Can someone please explain to me how you can pay £70 million for a nearly 31-year-old midfield player when Real Madrid, the team selling him, believed his legs had gone?”

Then they take a different turn and attempt to emulate teams like Liverpool and City by bringing in younger players, although players of lower caliber. At £89 million, Antony is inexplicable, and there have been many more absurdities.

Given that the new hires have a direct connection to Ten Hag’s former team, Ajax, it is evident that he was involved in numerous of those transactions. Nevertheless, we have seen a United team playing at full strength lose to Copenhagen in the Champions League. That is just not supposed to occur.

A Liverpool legend selects the ideal next Named is Man Utd manager.

After Victor Lindelof’s goal helped the team defeat Luton by a close margin on Saturday, Fowler said, “I honestly felt that was probably the final straw, and it doesn’t matter what happened against Luton on Saturday.” I believe that outcome, along with the possibility of missing out on the Champions League knockout round, may spell the end for him.

“I am aware that Marcus Rashford received a red card, but it is still unimaginable to lose there, even with 10 men.” Despite some impressive recent performances, they have been equally underwhelming in the league.

According to Fowler, United will have to give his replacement a lot of thought.

But he believes there are other worthy contenders, with one current Premier League manager in particular grabbing his attention.

“They cannot take the chance of following in the footsteps of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer once more, even though players like Michael Carrick and Keiron McKenna clearly have Old Trafford ties and some qualifications.” But they’re just not ready yet,” Fowler continued.

“However, the kind of applicant they require—a manager with a lengthy history of success at the highest level—won’t turn down a significant position to work for United. Neither Pep Guardiola nor Jurgen Klopp will. The right Carlo Ancelotti is coming to join them, but will he leave Real Madrid first? He’s a hell?

De Zerbi is expected to join Manchester United.

Therefore, a younger manager with a proven track record who can advance to the next level will need to be appointed, Fowler said.

“I believe Unai Emery possesses that, and following multiple European trophies, he’s performing admirably at Villa. The most noticeable, though, is Roberto de Zerbi. Many believed that after Brighton lost their two best players and almost their whole midfield this season, everything would fall apart. However, if anything, he’s strengthened the club.

Since taking over for Graham Potter at the AMEX, De Zerbi has performed incredibly well, as seen by his current 46.43 win % record.

In contrast, Ten Hag has won 50 of his 80 games as manager, good for a 62.5 win rate. Nine of those have come this season, although twenty-one of those have been losses.
