Man Utd likely to play in Europa League next season – Ten Hag


Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag, has admitted the team will likely play in the Europa League next season.

Ten Hag was speaking to BBC Match of the Day, following their 1-1 draw with Burnley on Saturday.

Antony gave United the lead in the 79th minute, before Zeki Amdouni equalised from the spot.

The result leaves Ten Hag’s men in sixth place with 54 points and four fixtures left.

United are 12 points behind Aston Villa, who occupy the last Champions League spot.

Ten Hag was asked about Europa League qualification looking most likely and he replied: “That is the facts. It is not easy to get fourth when you’re so far behind.

“We needed to win. The past few weeks, we’ve got in winning positions and then given it away. The gap is too big in this phase of the season.”
