Poll Reveals Majority Of Man United Fans Who Want Erik Ten Hag As Next Manager Have NOT Watched Him Coach An Ajax Game

Manchester United fans who want Erik ten Hag to become their next permanent manager have not watched him coach a single Ajax match this season, according to a new poll.

Ten Hag, 52, is widely considered a top target for United’s hierarchy, with Paris Saint-Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino also considered one of the frontrunners.

According to Sky Sports, the Red Devils have ‘sounded out’ the Ajax manager and Ten Hag ‘would be very keen to speak’ to United if they make an approach for him.

Now, a United fan-led Twitter account took to the social media platform to ask supporters who they would appoint as the club’s next permanent manager.

With four potential candidates named and 21,113 votes cast, Ten Hag won UtdArena’s Twitter poll by a landslide.

UtdArena followed up with a second Twitter poll asking United fans who had backed Ten Hag in the initial poll how many full Ajax matches they’ve watched this season.

However, the poll revealed that a staggering 66.4 per cent of fans had not watched a full match involving Ten Hag’s side, with 18 per cent claiming they watched one to five fixtures.

Only 6.2 per cent suggested they had tuned in for 6 to 10 full matches that Ajax have played this season, while 9.5 per cent said they have seen 11 or more.

Ten Hag, who is under contract with Ajax until 2023, has lifted two Eredivisie titles and two Dutch Cups with his current side.

The United target also led his scintillating Ajax team of the 2018-19 season to the Champions League semi-finals, with their run coming to an end at the hands of Tottenham.
