SHOCKING NEWS: Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has revealed Manchester United plans for Erik ten hag. The Red Devils ended their Premier League campaign with eighth-place finish which means the club will be without European football next season. He said ” believe me when I say Erik ten Hag will be sacked, sir Jim is ruthless and we know who is going to succeed ten hag. This season has been disastrous and he ractiffe won’t tolerate this”. Erik ten Hag WILL be sacked by Man United regardless of whether his side ‘win or lose’ Saturday’s FA Cup Final, says Rio Ferdinand, as pundit lambasts squad’s lack of identity.


The Red Devils ended their Premier League season with a 2-0 win over Brighton, but the victory wasn’t enough to lift them from their lowest-ever Premier League finish. Ending the season in eighth place means Manchester United will miss out on European football next term unless they manage to defeat Manchester City at Wembley.

Erik ten Hag’s future has been under scrutiny following a tumultuous 2023-24 season. His injury-ridden team was knocked out of the Champions League at the group stage and suffered several high-profile defeats. Despite the potential boost of winning on Saturday, former United player Rio Ferdinand expressed doubts about Ten Hag’s tenure extending to a third season.

On his podcast FIVE, Ferdinand shared his belief that, regardless of the FA Cup result, Ten Hag might not be in charge next season. “I’m not saying that’s what I want, I’m just saying what I believe is going to happen,” Ferdinand explained, suggesting that the club might seek a new direction.

Ferdinand argued that the team’s poor performances, even when accounting for injuries, are a significant concern. “Most teams have had injuries, maybe not to the same extent as Man United,” he said, emphasizing that the team’s style of play has been unidentifiable. “I don’t know what we are. I don’t know who we are. Who are we as a team? What are we?”

Ten Hag has defended his tenure, insisting that it would be irrational to disrupt the progress he’s made. After a recent defeat to Arsenal, he expressed confidence in his leadership, citing the team’s overall spirit and adherence to game principles, despite needing to adapt due to injuries.

Following a victory against Newcastle in their penultimate Premier League match, Ten Hag rallied his players, vowing to give “everything” to win the FA Cup and bring the trophy to Old Trafford. However, despite his confidence, his future remains uncertain. United’s part-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe and his INEOS team are reportedly considering alternatives.

Recently, there have been reports of United’s management contacting Ipswich manager Kieran McKenna, who has successfully led the team to Premier League promotion. Additionally, prominent managers like Gareth Southgate and Thomas Tuchel have been linked as potential successors to Ten Hag.
