In the Dark: Manchester United aware of backlash if they sack Ten Hag

Erik ten Hag remains in the dark about his future as Manchester United manager.

Despite winning his second trophy in two years as manager 17 days ago, Manchester United have met with potential managerial candidates to assess as part of their end-of-season review.

The club has been slammed by former midfielder, Gordon Strachan, for mistreating Ten Hag, who remains out of the loop.

According to the Daily Mail, Ineos know they risk a backlash from fans if they sack Ten Hag; it would be a far from ideal start for the new co-owners and manager.

We know that most United fans want Ten Hag to stay following an array of polls shared online, including our very own which you can still vote on.

Managerial candidates are dropping out of the race for the United job, if you believe everything written. They include Thomas Tuchel, Mauricio Pochettino and Gareth Southgate.

So, we’re left with Thomas Frank? No thanks.

Ten Hag has one year left to run on his contract and with the candidates in the running, I don’t see the point in sacking him now when he deserves a shot at a third season.
