In the event that Ineos fires Erik ten Hag, former Manchester United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel thinks Thomas Tuchel would be the ideal replacement.

If Thomas Tuchel were to take Erik ten Hag’s place at Manchester United in the upcoming weeks, Peter Schmeichel thinks he could have an impact akin to that of Jurgen Klopp.

Following a chastening second season as manager at Old Trafford, Ten Hag is under a great deal of pressure. The Red Devils may even have their lowest-ever Premier League finish after losing their chance to advance to the Champions League the following year.

Many coaches have been mentioned in recent months for the United position, and it is said that Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Ineos have not yet decided whether or not Ten Hag will stay in his position after this season.

The head coach of Bayern Munich, Tuchel, is one of several people connected to United, and he is expected to be free in the summer. Moreover, Old Trafford legend Schmeichel believes Klopp, who has transformed Liverpool over the past nine years, and the German are of similar stock.

Schmeichel stated on beINSPORTS, “I like him.” Thomas Tuchel is someone I like. I’ve had the honor of speaking with him on a few occasions. He knows a great deal about football. I believe he has been somewhat unfortunate to have been at two major football teams at the wrong points in their histories, when things were not going well on all fronts.

It’s not as though, say, that he wasn’t successful with Chelsea. He did, after all, win the Champions League? I simply enjoy him. Something about him appeals to me. He gives off an air of authority. Although you should never compare people, he shares Klopp’s traits, you know?

He should be a name mentioned in that regard if Manchester United were looking to hire a manager. He ought to be. That kind of pedigree is his. As I mentioned before, he possesses authority and has demonstrated his ability to prevail, which is crucial in my opinion.

“This is how football has been played, so he does come with a set system. Indeed, he is a prominent club manager, isn’t he? Klopp is as well. Klopp would be excellent for both Man United and Liverpool.

With just four league games left this season, Ratcliffe and his staff are anticipated to make a final decision in the upcoming weeks regarding Ten Hag’s retention.

After leading United to the FA Cup final, where they will play Manchester City for the second year in a row, the Dutchman still has a chance to end the season with a trophy.
