Erik ten Hag’s position as manager of Manchester United is in doubt following the team’s recent FA Cup semi-final loss to Coventry City. Jason Wilcox, the club’s new technical director, is reportedly set to conduct an audit to assess whether Ten Hag should continue in his role. Wilcox’s first task in his new position will involve holding detailed discussions with Ten Hag, his coaching staff, and players to evaluate their ability to adapt to a new ‘game model’.

This comes as part of a broader effort by the club’s new ownership to bring about change and restore the team’s past success. Sir Jim Ratcliffe, who recently became a co-owner of the club, along with INEOS, is overseeing the restructuring efforts. Wilcox joins the recently appointed chief executive, Omar Berrada, in this initiative. Dan Ashworth is also expected to join as a sporting director in the near future.

Part of Wilcox’s assessment will focus on determining the root cause of United’s challenges this season, including the impact of injuries. While Ten Hag has attributed some of the team’s struggles to bad luck with injuries, missing out on European football could jeopardize his position, regardless of the audit’s findings.
