Erik ten Hag replacement ‘agrees to take another job’ after Burnley draw for Man Utd

Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United team faced their 18th disappointing result of the season on Saturday, with Burnley managing to secure a draw at Old Trafford. This setback may result in United having to settle for another season in the Europa League. The team conceded a penalty just three minutes from time, following a clumsy mistake by Andre Onana. Rumors indicate that Sir Jim Ratcliffe, along with INEOS, had been considering a managerial change.

However, one of the reported targets for the position, Thiago Motta, seems to be on the verge of accepting a managerial role at Juventus, according to reports from Italy. This development could limit the options available for Sir Ratcliffe in the search for a replacement for ten Hag. Another speculated target for the managerial role at Manchester United, Julen Lopetegui, is also being pursued by other clubs, including West Ham United and AC Milan. This limits the available options for a potential replacement, leaving the decision-makers with a potential dilemma.

It may result in United sticking with ten Hag, despite the pressure on him. Following the disappointing result, ten Hag defended his team’s style of play, stating that they are one of the most dynamic and entertaining teams in the league. Despite creating numerous chances, he expressed frustration at losing control and giving away the game.
