Man Utd to decide on sacking Ten Hag this week


Manchester United will decide on manager Erik ten Hag’s future at the Premier League club this week.

The Red Devils’ managerial search will be concluded in the coming days, with Thomas Tuchel out of the race.

United’s co-owner, Sir Jim Ratcliffe, held talks with Tuchel in Monaco on Tuesday, but the German wants to take a sabbatical.

Ratcliffe and his Ineos group have been reviewing the team’s performance from last season

United’s shock 2-1 win over Manchester City in the FA Cup final has complicated the matter and is thought to have boosted Ten Hag’s case.

While no final decision on the future of incumbent Erik ten Hag has yet been made, officials have spoken to several potential replacements, including Brentford boss Thomas Frank, ex-Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi, and former Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino.
