Man Utd: Erik ten Hag saved by the takeover of Sir Jim Ratcliffe?


By: Manu Tournoux

Does Erik ten Hag still have a future in Manchester? Regularly criticized since the start of the season due to the mixed performances of the Mancunian club (9 wins, 7 defeats in 16 Premier League days), the Dutchman seemed to have reached a point of no return following the defeat against Bayern Munich (1-0). With his back against the wall after the elimination in C1, the Batavian sees the names of his potential successors circulated in the British press as the days pass. But according to the information from Sun this Friday, there remains one last card to show for the former Ajax Amsterdam coach.

At a time when Sir Jim Ratcliffe is in the process of investing £1.25 billion to buy back 25% of MU’s shares, this financial operation could allow Erik ten Hag to keep his position. According to the British tabloid, the 53-year-old technician intends to defend his project body and soul to the future boss of the Red Devils and his emissary Dave Brailsford. Optimistic, “ETH” is nevertheless aware that the match against Liverpool this weekend promises to be crucial for the rest of his career in England. But at present, The Sun reports that sources at the Mancunian club have affirmed that he remains the man for the job despite a record below expectations on the national and continental scene.
