Wow! Headline-taking Dutchman told to make massive Manchester United decision after summer admission

Will United sign Ten Hag?

Erik Ten Hag has been encouraged to leave Manchester United this summer by pundits Gary Lineker and Micah Richards.

Ten Hag’s position came under massive scrutiny during Manchester United’s dismal Premier League 2023-24 campaign, as The Red Devils slumped to their lowest-ever Premier League finish.

The Dutchman managed to stun Manchester City in that FA Cup final – but that did not stop the United board from speaking to possible candidates about taking over from Ten Hag at some point this summer window.

And after Ten Hag admitted that he knew that the Manchester United board had been speaking to his possible replacements – the Dutch boss has been urged to leave Man United this summer: ‘One new story before we finish,’ the Match of the Day host said on The Rest is Football podcast after discussing England’s opening Euro 2024 win over Serbia.

‘Erik ten Hag, who has been working on Dutch TV, has admitted United told him they spoke to Thomas Tuchel.

‘It’s strange behaviour from the club and odd that he would admit that. It’s poor from the club. It’s extraordinary. I’ve never known anything like this.

‘Who knows what will happen there because he also said they need to discuss a new contract. In his defence, and he deserves to be defended, he’s won two trophies at the club.’

Micah Richards, meanwhile, said he would have walked away from the job had he been in Ten Hag’s position.

‘He’s been disrespected,’ the former Manchester City defender said. ‘How bad is that?

‘We were talking about Jim Ratcliffe coming in and changing things, hiring proper football people, and then you hear stories like this. It’s ridiculous.

‘How can you do that? If I was the manager I would say, no problem, this isn’t for me. I don’t think it’s fair what’s happened.’
