INEOS’ stance on sacking Erik ten Hag after talks over summer transfers

Erik ten Hag’s future at Manchester United is ‘in the balance’, despite holding talks with the board over this summer’s transfer window.

The Dutchman has played a major role in recruiting and pre-season tour preparation for the club for the next campaign.

That’s in spite of the fact that the team has only triumphed in one of their last seven Premier League games, almost ending their chances of making it to the Champions League.

But, upon taking a 27.7% stake in the club, Sir Jim Ratcliffe had said the environment at the club was a bigger problem than perceived failings of those managers.

United had wanted to stick by Ten Hag, but results in recent weeks have forced the board into a rethink.

The Athletic say a decision will be made in the coming weeks, and that no concrete decision has been made over Ten Hag’s future.

He is involved in planning for next season and in recruitment, but not in the same way that he was in previous summers.

The way United is concluding the season is reminiscent of how, throughout the previous ten years, managers like Louis van Gaal, David Moyes, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer have lost their jobs.
