Prem boss ‘insulted’ by offensive Man Utd plan to lure him in on ‘ridiculous’ terms

Gabby Agbonlahor has implied that Gary O’Neil will be offended by the absurd rumors suggesting that Manchester United is interested in recruiting him from Wolves as a coach rather than as a manager.

Recent indications suggest that Erik ten Hag’s tenure at United may be nearing its conclusion. Under his leadership in his second season, the performance of the Red Devils has regressed – they are now ranked sixth in the Premier League, a decline from their third-place result in the previous season.

Given Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s goal of restoring United to the pinnacle of global football, any subpar performance is unlikely to be accepted.

Several managers have been associated with the position at Old Trafford, with Gareth Southgate now being the primary candidate. There have been stories mentioning Wolves boss O’Neil, although it is understood that United is interested in having him as a coach rather than a manager.

Agbonlahor stated that he would be offended by such a proposition and would not be inclined to pursue that kind of career change.

“I believe he will feel offended.” “If he is going to training today and comes across this story, he will likely question the idea of leaving a job where he has performed exceptionally well this season to become a coach,” he expressed on talkSPORT.

Managers aspire to become managers. They have no desire to become coaches. They are only interested in becoming a coach if they are experiencing difficulties or are unemployed.

“A few of these stories that are being shared now are becoming increasingly absurd.”

HITC has indicated that the Wolves manager has no inclination to go to a lower-level managerial position.

According to sources, he is expected to reject United’s offer in order to continue as the primary figure at Molineux. This is because taking on a coaching position is considered a step down in status.

Although it is improbable for O’Neil to join United in a coaching role, there is a possibility that he may transition from Wolves to become the manager of another Premier League team.

HITC reports that both West Ham and Brighton are considering the Englishman. Both of those clubs are ranked higher than his current team in the Premier League, but they have a lead of fewer than three points.

Therefore, the possibility of managing either of those teams may not be highly appealing to O’Neil.
