Manchester United report: Erik ten Hag sack decision to be made today

Just one and a half weeks following their FA Cup final triumph over their rivals across town, Manchester United might be poised to embark on a hectic summer of change.

Following the billionaire’s minority acquisition of the Club earlier this year, Sir Jim Ratcliffe and his Ineos team will be in charge of their first transfer window this summer.

The Red Devils’ season ended on a bright note with their victory at Wembley, but not before the team experienced its worst-ever Premier League finish, placing eighth in the standings with a negative goal differential.

It comes as no surprise, then, that there has been much conjecture in recent weeks regarding manager Erik ten Hag’s future.

The Dutchman is said to be in danger of losing his job, despite finishing the season with an FA Cup victory.

One of Ratcliffe’s most crucial decisions during his tenure at the team will be whether to continue working with the former Ajax manager or not, and after ten days of quiet following the Wembley incident, an announcement is supposedly imminent.

Teamtalk claims that Jason Wilcox, the club’s new technical director, has finished an investigation into Ten Hag’s suitability for the position and has suggested that the 54-year-old be let go.

They further state that Ratcliffe and his group will make a final decision this week, possibly on Wednesday.

Mauricio Pochettino, who left Chelsea last month, Thomas Tuchel, the former manager of Bayern Munich, Kieran McKenna, who last week signed a new contract at Ipswich Town, and England manager Gareth Southgate, who is finalising his preparations for the Three Lions’ Euro 2024 campaign, are just a few of the names that have been floated as Ten Hag’s replacement.
