Erik ten Hag’s sack as Manchester United manager has been predicted by Jose Enrique. The ex-Liverpool defender claims that the Red Devils boss will be sacked before his Chelsea counterpart, Mauricio Pochettino.
Ten Hag took charge at Old Trafford last summer and guided United to their first major trophy in six years. The Red Devils lifted the Carabao Cup during his first season.
The Dutchman also led United to the FA Cup final. He also helped the Old Trafford club back into the Premier League top four to qualify for this season’s Champions League.
Meanwhile, Ten Hag has faced some early pressure this term. He has lost two of United’s opening four Premier League games to Tottenham and Arsenal respectively.
‘I don’t think things are going to end well for Erik ten Hag at Manchester United,’ Enrique told Grosvenor Sport.
The Liverpool legend had continued: ‘I loved the way he handled things last season. But with the Jadon Sancho situation this season, I don’t know why he did what he did in putting the whole dressing room against him.
‘I have a feeling that Ten Hag won’t be sacked this season. But in the future he will be sacked before the likes of Mauricio Pochettino at Chelsea.
‘After a very good season last season I expected Manchester United to be in a much better position at the moment.
‘Obviously there have been other factors like the Jadon Sancho situation which Erik ten Hag spoke publicly about, as well as the Antony situation.’
United are back in Premier League action on Saturday when they host Brighton at Old Trafford.
