Manchester United: the locker room expects the worst with Erik ten Hag


By: Manu Tournoux

For two weeks now, Sir Jim Ratcliffe has been formalized as co-owner of Manchester United with a 27.7% stake. A percentage which could also increase in the years to come. As soon as he arrived, the boss of INEOS warned of his intention to turn everything upside down to put MU back in the spotlight. “This is just the start of our journey to return Manchester United to the pinnacle of English, European and world football, with world-class facilities for our supporters. The work to achieve these goals will accelerate from today.”

As we revealed, Erik Ten Hag did not obtain official support from the businessman. INEOS is currently working on the recruitment of a new major coach to turn around Manchester United and Jean-Claude Blanc, the man in the shadows of INEOS, also dreamed of placing Zinedine Zidane at the head of the Red Devils. However, Erik ten Hag is still in the race to win the FA Cup and secure a European place this season.

The locker room complains about training

But according to the latest information from Daily Mail, the Dutch technician would still benefit from the support of the locker room, despite some complaints regarding the intensity of his training. Some players were unhappy at not having benefited from an extra day off after the Luton match, with numerous injuries affecting the Mancunian squad. But many Manchester United players sense a desire for change from the new co-owners. According to them, ETH could be fired this summer after two years at the head of the first team.

Erik ten Hag reportedly told his staff that he had no guarantees about his future, although he publicly assured that he was on the same wavelength as Sir Jim Ratcliffe and his sporting director. at Ineos, Sir Dave Brailsford. However, the British media assures that it is not impossible that Ten Hag could benefit from a reprieve if he wins the FA Cup and qualifies for the Champions League. Which remains very complicated for the moment.
