Glazer family blamed for handing Erik ten Hag another Manchester United problem



| Last Updated:


The Glazer family have been further blamed for the latest problem Erik ten Hag is facing at Old Trafford as Manchester United manager.

Manchester United‘s start to the 2023/24 season has been nothing short of a disaster, with the club losing six of their opening 11 games across all competitions.

Erik ten Hag‘s side sit 10th in the Premier League table on 12 points of a possible 24 and have lost both of their opening Champions League group fixtures, putting the club in somewhat of a mini-crisis.

It is just another of the mountain of problems that Ten Hag has faced during his tenure so far, and although a recent 2-1 win over Brentford in the final moments has been touted as a sign of better things to come, some believe this is not the case.

Speaking on The Rest is Football podcast, Alan Sheerer has explained he believes United’s dramatic win over Brentford is not a turning point in the side’s season, and that it is the fault of those at the top that Ten Hag is facing yet another problem with the poor form of his team.

“I think what has happened at the very top of a football club inevitably, at some stage, always filters its way down onto the pitch,” he explained concerning where he feels the problem at United lies.

“Some people will say ‘Hang on a minute, it shouldn’t have anything to do with the players what’s going on in the board room’ or whatever it is, but it happens. You know it does, whatever it is.

“There’s a discontent among the fans because of the owners and that has filtered down onto the pitch. I don’t see it getting significantly better until that changes.”
