Man United make decision on Ten Hag’s future with former Chelsea boss primed to take over

In the unlikely event that United decides to make a change, new minority owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe and incoming sports director Dan Ashworth have great admiration for former Chelsea manager Graham Potter.

If he ended up being a free agent Ten Hag is a potential successor at Bayern Munich.

With their current Premier League standing of seventh, the Red Devils are headed for their lowest-ever finish.

Their miserable season may be summed up by just one statistic.

Their 13th loss of the season, their greatest in a Premier League campaign, came against Palace.

In all competitions, United has now given up 81 goals, which is a record since the 1976–1977 seasons.

The Dutchman did vow to fight for his future, however, with three league games left to go.

Ten Hag told Sky Sports: “I will keep fighting. I prepared the team in the best way I could do. It was not good enough, I have to take responsibility for that but I will find energy and prepare them for Sunday’s game [against Arsenal].”

He added: “It’s clear, it’s obvious, this is under-performing. We didn’t act how we wanted to and it’s not good enough. We are very disappointed.

“Our fans were behind us and we should have kept fighting like the fans did.

“There are always reasons, everyone sees our back line – we have huge problems. At the end of the day, we have to deal with it and we should have done better.”

Following the conclusion of the Premier League season, the Red Devils face Man City in the FA Cup final on May 25.
