I’ve heard Manchester United have set deadline for Erik ten Hag to avoid sack, says Alan Brazil

Nov 14, 2023

Manchester United have set under-fire boss Erik ten Hag a deadline to turn around the club’s fortunes, according to talkSPORT’s Alan Brazil.

United are in a crisis of form that has seen them slip to eighth place in the Premier League and bottom of their Champions League group.

Ten Hag’s side were also dumped out of the Carabao Cup last month leaving disgruntlement among the club’s supporters.

The Red Devils host struggling Luton on Saturday but there will undoubtedly be an air of caution around the fixture owing to their dismal home form this term.

United have lost five of their ten home games across all competitions including their last two at Old Trafford – 3-0 defeats to Manchester City and Newcastle.

Ahead of Saturday’s visit of the Hatters, Brazil revealed the Dutch tactician’s job is in danger should United sign off for the international break with another poor result.

Brazil says he was informed that club chiefs have set Ten Hag a deadline to turn around his side’s fortunes.

Manchester United have to beat Luton, if they don’t, Ten Hag is a goner,” Brazil revealed on talkSPORT Breakfast.

“He won’t go, from what I hear, before December but after December 1st, he’s in big danger.”

The Red Devils face two pivotal away games after the upcoming international break that could make or break Ten Hag’s future as Manchester United boss.

His side head to Everton before a crunch Champions League clash at Galatasaray which could see United crash out of the competition with a game to spare.

This season’s displays have been a far cry from the optimism that surrounded the club following last year’s third-placed league finish and Carabao Cup success – their first trophy since 2017.

But a high-profile spat with Jadon Sancho and an apparent loss of form for a host of his key players has seen Ten Hag’s side criminally underperform this term.

Brazil believes the disarray at the club is due to United’s failing stars no longer buying into the Dutchman’s philosophy.

“I have nothing against Ten Hag but I honestly believe they are not playing for him and he’s lost the dressing room,” Brazil added.

“He’s on thin ice, make no mistake about it.”
