Man Utd manager Erik ten Hag feels uncertain as Sir Jim Ratcliffe finalizes reshuffle

According to the Sun, Ten Hag now ‘feels in limbo’ and is unable to plan for the summer transfer window. The INEOS boss, who has brought colleague Sir Dave Brailsford on board with him at the club, has been handed the responsibility of football operations and is expected to have the final word on transfers.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe was at Stamford Bridge on Thursday. Tellingly, the 71-year-old has also declined to publicly back his manager.

On Thursday, the Red Devils contrived to be 3-2 up nine minutes into injury time against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, only to lose 4-3. The result all but ended their Champions League hopes, with United kicking off today in sixth place and nine points behind Tottenham ahead of them.

Despite the perceived pressure, Ten Hag has frequently reiterated that he is not concerned about his position and expects to be at the helm next season. He also claims to be in regular contact with Ratcliffe over club affairs.

That has set up a Wembley semi-final with Championship side Coventry City, with the winner to face Man City or Chelsea in the final. United played their Manchester rivals in the finale last year, but were beaten 2-1 as Pep Guardiola’s team completed the second leg of an eventual treble, mirroring the feat of their neighbors in 1998/99.
