Man Utd Move Closer To Appointing Ajax's Ten Hag As New Manager by Enoch3721(m): 7:18am On Apr 07
Manchester United have edged closer to naming Ajax boss Erik ten Hag as their new manager.

Old Trafford officials continue to insist the process of appointing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's permanent successor is not complete and that it is premature to say a deal has been done.

However, it is understood Ten Hag is now the favoured candidate among senior figures at United.

It was clear the choice had narrowed to Ten Hag or Mauricio Pochettino.

However, BBC Sport has been told it is felt Ten Hag would be a better fit for the structure now in place at United, where John Murtough is the football director, Darren Fletcher is technical director and interim boss Ralf Rangnick an advisor.

It is not thought an official announcement is imminent and with Ajax still in a battle with PSV Eindhoven for the Dutch title, it is possible United may delay it even further out of respect for the Eredivisie giants, where former United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar is chief executive.

If the appointment is confirmed, it is likely Ten Hag will bring in a former United coach or player as part of his backroom team, given it is unlikely the remaining link to the Solskjaer era, Mike Phelan, will remain at the club.

The high point of Ten Hag's reign at Ajax was taking the club to within a minute of the 2019 Champions League final, only to be denied by a Spurs side managed by Pochettino.

Chelsea's Thomas Tuchel and Spain manager Luis Enrique were both considered for the job but it was felt it was impractical to think either man would leave their present employment to join United for the start of next season.

It is understood Sevilla coach Julen Lopetegui was also spoken to about the role

This is the same Man United taunting Chelsea for changing coaches ,but right now, they are changing coaches like wrapper without winning anything. Chelsea changed and won trophies.


If Man United like,they should appoint Tuchel, Klopp,and Guardiola put together,they won't win ordinary plastic spoon with those crop of average players they are parading.

. Personally, i don't think he is the best manager for this current united squad.He doesn't have a record of working with underperforming players on huge wages.

As much as I love football, my eyes itch whenever I watch Man. Utd play. They lack cohesion and team spirit.
It is much more better watching Burnley.

I'm a united but if this new man still leaves floppy Maguire as the captain & allow him to keep disgracing the club all cos of his English background, then it's more like bathing a pig and giving it new set of clothes to wear.

Maguire is no where good to play for Manchester United. The new manager should start from him if he's serious. That's what others ignored which hunted them eventually. He should be able to make that tough decision.

On a lighter note....

Manchester United have apparently set up a call centre for fans who are troubled by their current form.

The number is 0800 10 10 10.

Calls charged at peak rate for overseas users.

Once again the number is

0800 won nothing won nothing won nothing.

Good riddance. Manchester United does not need or want olosho fans.
Liverpool went 30 years without winning the EPL, yet their fans remained faithful.
No club deserves prostitute fans.
