Manchester United have reportedly denied plans to replace Erik ten Hag as manager, putting an end to speculation.
The Peoples Person previously reported, via The Times, that United had made contact with potential candidates such as Ruben Amorim and Zinedine Zidane.
It was a backup plan in case things didn’t improve under the current manager.
According to Fabrizio Romano, United has denied any such claims, calling them “categorically false.”
The logo is fluid.
According to Romano, United has made no contact and has not even considered replacing the manager, let alone reached out to potential replacements.
Despite a nightmare start to the season, Ten Hag retains the board’s and fans’ trust due to the team’s encouraging performance last season.
United won the Carabao Cup, ending their trophy drought, and returned to the Champions League.
Ten Hag, on the other hand, is quickly depleting all of the credit he has in his bank with each bad result and even worse performance.
Boos from United fans have become commonplace at games this season, and Old Trafford has been repeatedly breached as a fortress under the manager.
Although players bore the brunt of criticism under previous managers, the Dutchman is finally facing criticism for some of his decisions.
The worst of Ten Hag as a manager has come to the fore this season, whether it’s confusing team selections, trying the same tactics that have failed him multiple times this year, or huge misses in the transfer market.
For the time being, his future appears secure, especially given the upcoming changes at the top level, with Sir Jim Ratcliffe taking sporting control of the club soon.
If results don’t improve soon, United’s statement, as reported by Romano, may be remembered as the dreaded “Vote of confidence” before the inevitable axe falls on the man in the dugout.
