Apart from Premier League form, Erik ten Hag is struggling with the rumours going around social media. The Dutchman has the pressure of saving his position at Old Trafford. The big reason is Man United’s poor Champions League form. They are on the verge of facing group stage exit. They recently suffered a 4-3 defeat to FC Copenhagen. They also faced elimination against Newcastle.
Man United have suffered nine defeats from 17 matches this season. Fans are now questioning the long-term suitability of Ten Hag. We all have gone through the process of Jadon Sancho who is out of the team selection for making allegations about Erik ten Hag for his toughness in the dressing room. He is now doing his training apart from the team. Man United fans are now criticising the Dutchman.
A new twist in the rumours has been added that Alejandro Garnacho was spotted liking a post on Twitter (X) in which the fan called for ‘patience’. The posts read, ‘I call for patience with Erik ten Hag. Manchester United’s tactical display last night was their BEST of the season. Don’t let the fact that they went down to 10 men fool you otherwise. They were sensational with 11 men & it was ENTIRELY down to Erik ten Hag!’
Garnacho is a vital player of Man United and he made his debut under Ten Hag this season. He started on the left side of United’s attack in the previous two games. He was part of United’s Champions League defeat which put pressure on Erik ten Hag. Fans also spotted Luke Shaw liking a post related to the Man United manager.
Luke Shaw liked a post on X from JZthekid which read: ‘Players can’t finish but it’s obviously Ten Hag’s fault right? I hate Manchester United fans.’ However, the player removed the post from his likes after getting lot of attraction. These social media things may cause drama in the dressing room of Man United.
Manchester United are sitting sixth in the Premier League table and they are decent in the top-flight. Their exit from EFL was heartbreaking for the Dutchman. Champions League horror is still chasing him. They now have two games left in the Champions League group stage. The Red Devils will need to win both games if they want to earn qualification to the round-of-16.
