Man Utd ‘make Erik ten Hag sack decision’ after two dressing room issues emerge

Even though Manchester United crushed Crystal Palace 4-0 on Monday, there are allegedly no intentions to fire Erik ten Hag before the FA Cup final versus Manchester City. Despite two obvious problems emerging from his dressing room, Ten Hag isn’t expecting to find out his destiny until after the derby match at Wembley Stadium on May 25.

United managed to stay in ninth place despite putting on one of their worst performances at Selhurst Park in the poor post-Sir Alex Ferguson era.

Remaining behind Chelsea and Newcastle United would seal the Red Devils’ lowest-ever Premier League result and prevent them from earning a trip to the Champions League, Europa League, or Conference League.

Not only would the FA Cup be Ten Hag’s last chance to secure a Europa League spot, but it would also be his second big trophy as manager in as many years.

However, losing the FA Cup final against their fiercest rivals for the second time in a row would cap off a miserable season and probably prompt Sir Jim Ratcliffe to make a change.

Prior to that, The Telegraph reports that Ten Hag would be given the opportunity to manage United’s remaining three league games as well as the Wembley match by the new decision-makers.

On Sunday, United will welcome Arsenal, the reigning champions, at Old Trafford before Newcastle United’s visit. Ten Hag’s team travels to Brighton and Hove Albion to round out their Premier League season.

It’s reported that a number of United players feel the Dutchman’s destiny is all but guaranteed, even if they beat their fierce rivals to win the FA Cup for a record 13 times later this month.

It’s stated that Ten Hag’s lack of empathy and motivational abilities toward his team was the root of problems during a problematic campaign.

Apparently, because of his inability to produce consistent success this season, United officials gave up on their chances of keeping their Champions League status a while ago.

However, it would not be well accepted if there was no European football competition the next season, not even a debut in the Conference League.

It’s reported that Jason Wilcox, who took over as United’s new technical director last month, is going through a month-long audit at the team’s Carrington training facility.

This is anticipated to include evaluating Ten Hag’s qualifications as manager based on staff and player feedback in addition to personal observations.

Sitting next to Jean-Claude Blanc, who will take over as interim CEO following the FA Cup final until Omar Berrada takes over on July 13, Wilcox didn’t seem impressed at Selhurst Park.

If United decided to carry over their brutal restructuring throughout the football hierarchy into the dugout, both chiefs would have a big influence in it.
