According to a former Premier League striker, about 6 Manchester United players are dissatisfied with their Dutch coach and want a new coach to lead the club.
Coach Erik ten Hag’s Red Devils are having their worst start to a season in 61 years. They lost 8/15 matches on all fronts and were very difficult in both the domestic Premier League and Champions League arena .
And the latest 0-3 loss to Newcastle in midweek caused Man United to be eliminated from the Carabao Cup. Therefore, coach Ten Hag is currently under increasing pressure at Old Trafford . And many fans began to lose faith in the Dutch military leader.
And yet, former Aston Villa striker Gabby Agbonlahor revealed that there are at least 6 MU players who also want coach Ten Hag to leave. Speaking on talkSPORT, Agbonlahor revealed: “Looking at the way Manchester United plays now, you can nаme five or six players who want Ten Hag to be fired. This helps them get better under the guidance of a new coach.

The players won’t talk about it publicly. But I think Ten Hag only has one more match left. Then, when the new leader arrives, everyone will return to order . Man United needs to save itself before it’s too late.”
At the same time, Man United officials are said to have two major doubts about Ten Hag’s ability amid the club’s chaos. The first is that Ten Hag’s player management , which was considered positive last season, is now having problems. Second, some of his match decisions caused a stir within the team.
Despite Man United ‘s poor performance , there are currently no official plans to fire Ten Hag. However, everyone can see that the pressure is on his shoulders and former legend Gary Neville thinks it is difficult for Ten Hag to last long at Old Trafford.

Man United are eighth in the Premier League and have now lost five matches at home this season. And if that wasn’t bad enough, the Red Devils were in real dаnger of being eliminated from the Champions League group stage after losing to Galatasaray and Bayern Munich, and only managed a lucky win against Copenhagen.
And with crucial close games against Fulham, Copenhagen and Luton coming up before the next international break, more defeats could spell the end for Ten Hag.
The British press in recent days has also been very enthusiastic about counting the day Ten Hag leaves Old Trafford and ready to list 7 names capable of replacing him, shortened to 3. Leading the way is Coach Potter despite the failure. in Chelsea after just seven months, unemployed and waiting for a job that suits him.

The job at Man Utd could lure Potter back, if Ten Hag is fired. It is important to know that Jim Ratcliffe and his associates will take control of football decisions when he completes the purchаse of 25% of the club’s shares. Billionaire Dave Brailsford, Jim Ratcliffe’s companion, is a passionate fan of Potter and once wаnted him to take over Nice Club.
Zidane is also an attractive nаme for Man United, after he quit his job at Real Madrid in 2021. This legendary midfielder won two La Liga championships and three Champions League championships while he was playing. Zidane was previously contacted to take over Man Utd but he refused because he did not speak English.
Coach Nagelsmann is also Man United’s target, after he was shockingly fired by Bayern Munich in March, even though the club was on the way to winning the Bundesliga championship and still participating in the Champions League. After that, he was in charge of the German national team. The tactically flexible Nagelsmann could be suitable for Man United but must wait for him to arrive after the Euros next summer.
