Why I was SACKED by Manchester United this morning – Eric Ten Hag press conference after been sacked this morning

Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, has chosen not to attend a pre-match press conference prior to their Carabao Cup encounter against Newcastle United.


Currently, the Red Devils are facing a challenging period as a result of Ten Hag’s management, which has led to their poorest start to a season since 1986.


Despite their mediocre performances, the Dutchman managed to alleviate some pressure with three consecutive wins in all competitions. However, their arch-rivals Manchester City easily put an end to the Red Devils’ small recovery by defeating them 3-0 at Old Trafford on Sunday.



Erling Haaland scored two goals and Phil Foden added another late in the match, securing victory. Man Utd made few attempts to regain control of the game, resulting in yet another underwhelming effort.


Ten Hag enjoyed a successful debut season in 2022/23 as the manager of Man Utd, guiding the team to the final of the FA Cup, winning the League Cup, and securing a top-four finish in the Premier League.



However, due to the importance placed on achieving positive outcomes, the manager of Manchester United has chosen to forgo their pre-match press conference prior to their Carabao Cup encounter against Newcastle.


Further information: Manchester United is predicted to finish in the bottom half of the Premier League. If Ten Hag has any sense of self-respect and honor, he should step down from his position.


It is hardly surprising that Ten Hag has chosen to avoid the press conference, considering the high probability of the Man Utd manager being confronted with challenging inquiries following their defeat in the Manchester derby.


The Manchester Evening News clarified that managers are not obligated to hold press conferences before Carabao Cup matches, unlike the Premier League, FA Cup, and Champions League.



‘Consequently, clubs frequently bypass the customary procedures in the initial stages of the competition, and United have chosen to do the same on this occasion.’


Despite Manchester United’s terrible start this season, there is still no indication of their fans demanding the sacking of Ten Hag. However, former Liverpool striker Stan Collymore recently asserted that it is improbable for the Dutchman to withstand the “ruthless” nature of Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s team.


“Antony, Jadon Sancho, Casemiro…” According to Collymore’s analysis in his Caught Offside column, there has not been a single Manchester United player who has consistently performed at a level of eight out of ten during the past few seasons.
