Breaking News: Manchester United to sack Erik ten Hag, with three-man shortlist to replace the Dutchman: report

As Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s revolution continues, Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag will be replaced by one of two managers.

Erik ten Hag will be fired by Manchester United following a subpar second season for the Dutchman.

After the Red Devils’ miserable performance against Liverpool on Sunday, where they held the title contenders to a point, reports state as much. Before losing, Manchester United led 2-1 at one point. Ten Hag faced criticism for his choice to substitute Alejandro Garnacho in the second half.

Ten Hag’s backroom team was assembled by Sir Jim Ratcliffe, and it now looks that Ten Hag will be replaced as head coach of Ajax before the upcoming season.

According to TEAMtalk, it’s “game over” for Ten Hag. Journalist Ben Jacobs has named three possible successors for the 54-year-old, and the United hierarchy is reportedly considering them.

The reason for the connections to Gareth Southgate is that he coworked with Dan Ashworth at the FA, Jacobs told GIVEMESPORT. Another candidate who is rumored to wish to return to club football is Julian Nagelsmann.

“Zinedine Zidane will most likely be included in the succession planning list, but being included on the list does not guarantee that you will receive an offer of employment or any communication at all. It simply indicates that you are a member of a group of names that can be investigated.

If this three-man shortlist turns out to be accurate, FourFourTwo believes that the Euros could prove to be a crucial impediment to selecting a new manager. Both Southgate and Nagelsmann will be in charge of England and Germany at the tournament, respectively, and it is likely that United will want to choose their new manager before the event.

Didier Deschamps has been the head coach of the French national team for 12 years; Zidane, on the other hand, has been closely associated with the position. If the World Cup-winning coach leaves after the Euros this summer, Zidane might take over as Les Bleus’ head coach.
