After a forgettable week at Old Trafford, a fresh Manchester United manager update has suddenly surfaced, according to Fabrizio Romano.
News about Man Utd manager
The Red Devils travel to Fulham today after suffering devastating 3-0 losses to Newcastle United in the EFL Cup and Manchester City in the Premier League, respectively. Ten Hag’s team can end up in the bottom half of the league standings by the end of the weekend if they suffer another loss today at Craven Cottage.
Concerning Ten Hag’s future, rumours circulated prior to the loss to Newcastle suggesting that the Glazers and potential new investor Sir Jim Ratcliffe agreed that Ten Hag was the best manager for the position. Ten Hag stated the following about his role following Newcastle’s defeat:
We’ve had a lot of setbacks this season, but I’m a fighter, so I know it won’t always be easy. However, you also need to deal with it, and that’s never a valid reason.
“I’ve stated that previously. I am aware of setbacks, but outcomes are still required. Since Sunday and tonight were far from that, we must perform at a particular level, the bare minimum, in order to win games.
Since then, though, rumours have suggested that the Dutchman is “thin ice,” with Zinedine Zidane and Ruben Amorim of Sporting CP being mentioned as two possible successors to Ten Hag.
Romano has been sharing updates on Man Utd’s manager from “club sources” on X in the past 48 hours. These sources have refuted claims that the team is looking for a new manager.
Manchester United disputes any notion or communication on Erik ten Hag’s replacement as head coach. Reports about the incoming manager are “categorically false,” according to club sources.
Ten Hag’s Man Utd record
After leading the team into the top four, winning the EFL Cup, and reaching the FA Cup final in his first season in charge, one could argue that Ten Hag still has some credibility at Old Trafford.
But as you can see from the image above, there have already been some setbacks this time around, making it difficult. The club may therefore be obliged to make changes if current circumstances persist, but for the time being, they appear to be firmly behind Ten Hag in the hopes that he can turn things around, beginning tonight against Fulham.
