Report: Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United exit still likely despite Everton win



| Last Updated:


According to a new report, Manchester United’s 2-0 victory against Everton over the weekend has done little to ease the tensions surrounding Erik ten Hag’s future at the club.

Ten Hag’s future at the club has been the subject of constant speculation over the last few months, and it remains uncertain.

Despite United winning eight of their eleven games in 2024, Ten Hag’s squad’s performances have been well below the level expected of a Man United team. CaughtOffside reports that a summer exit from United for Ten Hag now “seems increasingly inevitable.”

This latest report comes just days after it was stated in The Mirror that Ten Hag is on the shortlist to become the next manager at Ajax in a sensational return to the Dutch giants.

Names such as England manager Gareth Southgate and former Real Madrid and Wolves manager Julen Lopetegui have been suggested for the United hotseat. The report from CaughtOffside also notes that Thomas Tuchel and Zinedine Zidane have their admirers at the club.

Winning against Everton over the weekend was another example of the Red Devils’ performance leaving much to be desired, with fans and management seemingly unimpressed.

As noted in the report United’s victory over Everton did ease the pressure Ten Hag faces at the club, but only “slightly.” Meanwhile, several fans pointed out that United needed two penalty goals to beat a team currently in sixteenth place in the Premier League table.

Ten Hag’s side conceded 50 shots in their last two Premier League matches alone, with the lack of a clear defensive structure undoing his previous good work at the club.

United’s current situation marks a stark contrast to twelve months ago when Ten Hag led the club to their first trophy in five years after the Red Devils clinched the Carabao Cup against Newcastle.

Now, Ten Hag finds himself on the precipice of an Old Trafford exit, eight points off the top four in the Premier League with twenty-eight games played and a goal difference of zero.
