‘It’s done’: 53-year-old will replace Ten Hag at Man United after chat with a current player recently – pundit

Pundit says Erik ten Hag will now be replaced at Manchester United by an international manager.

Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, is still facing criticism from his peers, and one analyst has stated that a current player has suggested the Dutchman is done at Old Trafford.

Ten Hag has led United to the FA Cup final, but going into the summer, he will still be under a lot of pressure.

The Dutch manager has been on a roll lately, and he has been optimistic in his press conferences leading up to today’s match against Arsenal.

Furthermore, McAteer has made a significant assertion, claiming to have discussed Ten Hag’s replacement by an international manager with a current player.

According to a pundit, Gareth Southgate’s transfer to Manchester United seems “done.”
Before United’s match against Arsenal, McAteer said on BEIN Sports that he had discussed the future manager of the team with a player.

“I spoke with him on Friday; I happened to run into him as I live a short distance away from the area. He’s a great guy, and I asked him about the season’s conclusion and his thoughts,” McAteer remarked.

“I got no sense from him that the manager was going to stay.” We actually discussed several names and the person he felt would be a good fit.

Richard Keys, the presenter, pressed McAteer for the name. He first denied names like Thomas Tuchel and Jose Mourinho, but eventually conceded that Gareth Southgate was the one being mentioned.

That was the name, indeed. When a manager’s job is at stake, football players tend to act accordingly, and they are obviously aware of this. I simply had the impression that everything was finished.

In terms of the news story, the connections to Southgate for United are, of course, nothing new. He has a close relationship with Dan Ashworth, and INEOS and Jim Ratcliffe think well of him.

However, McAteer’s revelation adds more context to the tale, and the fact that a current player is engaging in gossip highlights the issues facing this United team.

As the leader of one of the biggest teams in the country, Southgate makes sense and would be able to manage the media and the international aspect of the club with ease.

However, the issue with this kind of news spreading resurfaces. It’s disgusting for a player to talk to a pundit—and a former Liverpool player at that.

It will be interesting to see if this one gains traction because United supporters deserve better.
