INEOS have a big decision to make surrounding whether they keep or sack Erik ten Hag from Manchester United ahead of this summer.

After a successful first season at Manchester United, Erik ten Hag is under serious fire after a poor second season at Old Trafford, with the club eight points from Champions League qualification.

They currently sit sixth in the Premier League table and are out of Europe, with only the FA Cup remaining as a chance for silverware.

Under the new reign from INEOS and Sir Jim Ratcliffe, there have been some significant personnel changes at United, and Ten Hag’s job status has been called into serious question of late.

Former United captain Gary Neville, speaking to Sky Sports on Monday evening, says he thinks that INEOS have already made their decision on Ten Hag when asked if he thinks the club will sack him soon.

“If you look at the guy coming from City as the new CEO, and they are looking to get Dan Ashworth in from Newcastle, they are going to make a decision quite quickly if they haven’t already,” Neville suggested.

“I think that Jim Ratcliffe and Dave Brailsford already know whether they are going to keep Erik ten Hag as manager next season. I can’t believe they are going to wait until May to make that decision and then leave themselves short.

“Where Manchester United have been found out in the last ten years in recruitment on and off the pitch is poor decisions, late decisions, and not being ahead of the game – I don’t think they are going to do that (again).

“Me, I suspect that they have already come to a conclusion – it may even be that Champions League or not, they will stick with that decision.”
