Man United statement suggests Gary Neville’s Erik ten Hag prediction is correct



| Last Updated:


Manchester United have confirmed the departure of first-team coach Eric Ramsay following Gary Neville’s prediction about Erik ten Hag.

Ramsay, 32, was highly rated and a key part of United’s backroom staff. He will become the youngest head coach in MLS history when he moves to Minnesota United next week.

Interestingly, United’s statement on his departure included details that his responsibilities would be shared with Ten Hag’s current staff at the club rather than bringing in a new coach.

“His responsibilities will be shared across the rest of the coaching team for the remainder of the season,” the club wrote.

Considering the former Chelsea youth coach had an important role under Ten Hag, it is surprising that INEOS and United are not bringing in a replacement.

It could suggest that Sir Jim Ratcliffe and the new leadership already have made their mind up on Ten Hag’s future at the club, something that Gary Neville detailed earlier this week.

Speaking on Sky Sports, the former United captain explained: “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.

“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.”
