Report: Man Utd decide to sack Ten Hag with “unbelievable” 48 y/o leading contender to take over

Posted by

Graham Potter may take over as manager if Erik ten Hag leaves Manchester United, since his dismal play against Coventry City over the weekend showed his bad form.

With only one victory in seven Premier League games and little chance to qualify for Europe, United nearly lost a 3-0 lead against the Championship team in a match that was the tale of their season. They have conceded goals in the closing minutes of games all season long. With rumours that Ten Hag would be fired at the conclusion of the season and indications that Potter may take over as their new leader, Ten Hag is in a precarious situation.

Erik ten Hag: Man Utd boss Graham Potter Could Take His Place Erik ten Hag hasn’t performed well enough this season.
Ten Hag
According to the rumour, Erik ten Hag is about to go because United supporters no longer have trust in his ability to lead.

Many saw their match against Coventry as the final straw after they nearly gave up a 3-0 lead with only 20 minutes remaining. The Sky Blues then pulled off a stunning comeback and nearly won it in the 121st minute, but VAR called Haji Wright offside as he set up Victor Torp for the finish.

Instead of celebrating a penalty shoot-out victory that sets up a rematch of last year’s championship match between United and rival Manchester City, United leaders Avram Glazer, brother Joel, and new minority owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe watched United fans stream out of Wembley.

A management change may be imminent given that Ratcliffe has already named Omar Berrada from Manchester City as chief executive, Dan Ashworth is getting closer to a director of football position, and Jason Wilcox was named technical director.

Even if Ten Hag defeats City in the championship game to win their first FA Cup since 2015–16, the article continues, indicating that they are unlikely to remain in the team come summertime.

Potter, who is regarded as “unbelievable,” is therefore expected to emerge as the front-runner for the position following his triumph at Brighton. Although he did not fare well at Chelsea, it seems the Red Devils might be willing to offer him another chance at Old Trafford should Ten Hag be relieved of his responsibilities.

The Chelsea Spell of Graham Potter Won’t Give Fans Confidence
Chelsea fired Graham Potter after a brief tenure. If Potter were to take over at the Theatre of Dreams, United supporters won’t be very confident after his tenure at Chelsea.

After Thomas Tuchel was fired, the Englishman took over the Blues, who were sitting sixth in the standings. However, despite winning three of his first four Premier League games, Potter only managed two more wins between mid-October and early March—a disastrous run of form that left the team struggling to even finish in the top half.

GIVEMESPORT Crucial Stat: Chelsea’s 12th-place result from the previous season under Graham Potter was their second-worst in the history of the Premier League, only surpassed by their 14th-place result from 1993–94.

He was fired after the Blues’ 2-0 home loss to Aston Villa at the beginning of April left them in 11th place. If not for the team’s strong start to the campaign, the Blues would have been involved in a relegation battle after only winning four games between game weeks 12 and 33 and one more after that.

Although United’s season at Chelsea hasn’t been quite as disastrous as it was under Potter, there is still reason for optimism as the team features talented players like Bruno Fernandes, Kobbie Mainoo, and Alejandro Garnacho, to mention a few.
