INEOS decision on Erik ten Hag in ‘crucial stages’ as Man United manager makes damning statement on old leadership



| Last Updated:


The decision surrounding Erik ten Hag’s future at Manchester United is reaching the ‘crucial stages’ as INEOS prepare for next season.

Ten Hag left for a family holiday after the FA Cup final win over Manchester City last weekend. The Wembley win ended a poor season on a high note.

INEOS have yet to communicate their decision on the future of the United manager. Although it has been well reported that they have met with potential replacements, a final decision has not been made.

According to Fabrizio Romano, the Dutch coach and his agents are still awaiting formal communication from United to understand the club’s position.

He added that confirmation on this matter is expected in the coming days as the final decision approaches. The board is involved, Ten Hag is waiting, the players are waiting—the situation is reaching a ‘crucial’ stage.

Ten Hag has now won two trophies during his two-season spell at Old Trafford, which has gained him major support, particularly from matchgoing fans.

However, the eighth-place finish in the Premier League and questionable signings are two reasons why some are wary about his future at the club.

Ten Hag has responded to the claims about the signings made since he took charge. He explained that he has not been responsible for the overinflated prices of the likes of Casemiro and Antony, instead that the previous leadership took charge in that aspect.

The manager also believes that the transfer failings have been taken out of proportion and that the foundations are growing at the club.

“The prices paid for players are indeed very high – but I am not responsible for that. The club did all the negotiations, including with very good potential players who didn’t come in the end,” he said, as quoted by the Mirror.

“So it is all a bit more nuanced than the picture that is being painted that the purchase policy is disastrous. It’s all negative, but despite all the problems, the foundation at the club has grown stronger.”
