There is reportedly a growing discontent towards Erik ten Hag at Old Trafford…
An undisclosed Manchester United player has reportedly disclosed that Erik ten Hag’s current team is not in favor of him and expressed their discontent with his treatment of Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho. Ten Hag, who initially enjoyed a successful season in charge, has had to address various off-field problems impacting performance and results.
Since the beginning of the 2023/24 season, the team from Greater Manchester has struggled in both domestic and European competitions, marking their worst-ever start to a Premier League campaign in the club’s history.
Losses to Galatasaray and Bayern Munich mean they sit rock-bottom of their Champions League group, while they have four wins and losses apiece in the league heading into the October international break. And whileMailOnlinereport thatTen Hag’s role as manager is safe– for the foreseeable future at least – Alan Brazil told co-host Ally McCoist on talkSPORT that there is a feeling of discontent towards him among the Red Devils players.
On talkSPORT’s talk show, Brazil revealed a rumour from inside the Old Trafford camp amid a barrage of uncertainty coming out of the club.
“Do you know what Ally – and I know you’ve got to be careful what you report on – this is only what I heard from a United player who told someone we know very well.”McCoist said.“He said, the players are not having the manager, they’re not having him, definitely not.
“By all accounts they’re disgusted at the way he treated Cristiano [Ronaldo] and they say [Jadon] Sancho is a great guy who works his socks off, so I don’t know who to believe to be honest.”
Ronaldo, who returned to the club after setting Spain and Italy alight, departed in acrimonious fashion after a shocking interview with Piers Morgan. The Portugal international shamed Manchester United, the owners, his teammates and Ten Hag himself.
The former Ajax chief’s hand was forced into terminating the five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s contract, and he joined became a trailblazer by being the first high-profile footballer to leave European football behind for the riches of the Saudi Pro League.
McCoist then asked Brazil:“I tell you one thing, you can guarantee, it’s still not right there is it?”
“No, he said the players aren’t having him, they’re not having him”, Brazil added.
“A Man Utd player told someone I know well that they are not having the manager!” 😱
“Apparently they’re disgusted with the way he treated Ronaldo, & Sancho works hard!”
