“Magnificent…” Unlikely Man United hero praised as INEOS are called to KEEP Erik ten Hag



| Last Updated:


Erik ten Hag’s future at Manchester United has been compared to that of a forgotten World Cup star as INEOS’ decision on his position looms.

Erik ten Hag’s future will be decided this week as the Manchester United hierarchy reviews a season that saw the team win the FA Cup, finish eighth in the Premier League, and exit the Champions League before Christmas.

Although the FA Cup victory on Saturday was a clear high point, and there were some other notable results, the overall performance has been largely disappointing.

This has led to many calling for Ten Hag to face the sack. INEOS is now conducting a season review that will determine whether the Dutchman will keep his job beyond this summer. However, German former manager Jürgen Klinsmann has called for Ten Hag to be kept in his position.

“You watch his interview, the only thing he talks about is his team, what they did right, about his players,” Klinsmann told ESPN.

“Every time questioned about his own future he just moved away from it, talked about the team. And if your team is hungry, determined, and puts in all the energy and the spirit, they can do special things.”

Speaking further, Klinsmann went on to praise United’s unlikely FA Cup hero, Sofyan Amrabat, for his performance at Wembley. Amrabat, after a disappointing season, was fantastic in the middle of the park, nullifying Kevin de Bruyne and Phil Foden on the day.

“They played to their own strengths, with some magnificent performances, like Amrabat was fantastic in the middle of the park. That makes you proud as a manager, as a coach.

“I really think that he deserves a huge compliment, Erik ten Hag.”

“Sometimes, it takes time as a group to grow together. Amrabat took some time to become part of Man United’s team. The younger ones growing into that group. He delivered two trophies in two years.”

“I feel for Erik. I hope he gets a chance to continue.”
