Manchester United have had a terrible start to the season, losing three of their first five matches in the Premier League, and are now only 13th in the Premier League table, nine points behind table-toppers Manchester City and almost out of the title race. In addition, their 3-4 defeat to Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich in the first round of the UEFA Champions League added to the current situation.
United, led by Jens Ten Hagar, have made the most difficult start to a season since the days of Sir Alex Ferguson. United’s poor performance has left fans disappointed, and they are beginning to wonder if Temhag is capable of helping the team out of their predicament. Although United’s performance last season was also unsatisfactory, especially the 7-0 loss to Liverpool, but Ten Hag led the team finally managed to win the qualification to participate in the Champions League in the 2023-24 season, but the current situation may put his position under threat.
Sources from Dutch media outlet 1908.nl claim that United are considering sacking Ten Hag and that another Dutch manager, Arne Slot, could be his potential replacement. Slotter attracted interest from Tottenham in the summer, and his performances at Feyenoord are considered a “rising star” in the coaching world. If he were to take over as United’s manager, he could bring a new look and tactical philosophy to the team.
Manchester United is approaching a crucial moment of the season, and they need to regain their lost confidence and fighting spirit in the coming matches. The weekend’s away game against Bournemouth will be the most important game of Ten Hagar’s managerial career, and if he fails to win this game, he may be sacked by the club very soon.
