(Video) Erik ten Hag pushes back human rights question amid Manchester United auction

Erik ten hag refused to comment when he was pressed on a question relating to human rights issues in Qatar, with the likelihood that they will be bidding for Manchester United.

The Glazers are trying to sell the club to maximise their profits after 17-years of leaching off our beloved football club.

English businessman Sir Jim Ratcliffe is expected to enter the bidding process, although he is not expected to compete with the likes of Qatar if the state does get involved.

Manchester United becoming state owned would split the United fanbase. The reports claim Qatar would equip Erik ten Hag with a “war chest” in the transfer market, as well as clearing the debt and invest in the stadium, training ground and surrounding areas.

Others are opposing Qatari ownership due to their extremely uncomfortable human rights issues.

In a new interview with Sky Sports, that question was posed to Ten Hag. The Dutchman pushed it back and said his focus is on football right now.

“I can’t reply on that,” Ten Hag explained. “Once again, I focus on football.”
