Erik Ten Hag’s Man United future in major 'doubt' after Man City loss

Erik Ten Hag’s Man United future in major 'doubt' after Man City loss

A new report has emerged regarding Erik ten Hag's future as Manchester United manager.

Manchester United players are becoming more doubtful over Erik Ten Hag's future at the club, it has been claimed.

United suffered an 11th Premier League defeat of the season on Sunday, losing 3-1 to rivals City after leading at half-time.

The Red Devils are currently sixth in the league, four points behind fifth-placed Spurs and 11 behind Aston Villa in fourth.

There had been a slightly renewed optimism with the investment from Sir Jim Ratcliffe and United went on an impressive unbeaten run.

But according to a report from the Daily Mail, United's players "are increasingly doubtful" that Ten Hag will be at the helm next season.

It's claimed although the Dutchman still has the backing of the squad, many feel as though Ineos will sack him and bring in a new manager in the summer.

Ratcliffe and his firm had always planned to review Ten Hag's position and the former Ajax man has stressed that he is in agreement with the new shareholders after productive conversations.

United could still end the season well if they were to win the FA Cup and finish fifth, which could result in a Champions League place.

But they face Liverpool in the quarter-finals and qualifying for next season's Champions League is still a tough task.

The report goes on to add that a number of United players have played without being fully fit in recent times but many are not happy with how intense training sessions.

They believe lighter sessions would benefit the side, who have had 47 instances of players missing because of injury or illness.

Separately, Mark Goldbridge of the United Stand claims that a top source has told him that Ten Hag has just three games to save his job.

United's next three fixtures are against Everton, Liverpool (cup) and Brentford.
