‘Unfortunately, It Is The End’ – Ex-PL CEO: Man United are about to sack Ten Hag

Everton’s former chief Keith Wyness has insisted there is “no way” Erik ten Hag will remain as Man United manager and he will be sacked soon. 

The 66-year-old, who ran a football consultancy advising elite clubs after serving as CEO at Goodison Park from 2004 to 2009, acknowledged the 54-year-old has faced a “tough situation” but is not the “right fit” at Old Trafford in an interview with Football Insider’s Inside Track podcast.

Ten Hag has been optimistic about his future, according to Sky Sports (10 May), saying he doesn’t worry about getting fired because Man United’s INEOS ownership has “common sense.”

On Wednesday, May 15, United defeated Newcastle 3-2, but with one game left, they are still in seventh in the standings.

It will be their lowest-ever Premier League finish if they stay in eighth place.

Ten Hag ‘on borrowed time’ at Man United, says Wyness 

Ten Hag has the opportunity to win his second trophy as United boss when his side face Man City in the FA Cup final later this month (25 May).

Wyness told Football Insider‘s Insider Track podcast: “I think he’s on borrowed time. There’s no way he stays.

“He’s not had the right support and he’s been overwhelmed with the club in turmoil. 

“Ten Hag has had a tough situation to handle, the same as David Moyes when he took over.

“There’s been a lot of musical chairs going on with the top-level executives, so it’s bound to be difficult for the manager. 

“I just don’t think Ten Hag is the right fit, and the new owners will see another route forward for the club.

“Unfortunately, I think this is the end of his time at Man United.”
