Pressure from the media and fans is increasing on Ten Hag because of MU’s alarming decline in performance. After a humiliating 0-4 defeat to Crystal Palace, legend Michael Owen urged the MU Board of Directors to immediately fire Ten Hag. immediately and appointed assistant Steve McClaren as interim manager until the end of the season.

With 8th place in the rankings, MU still hopes to participate in the European Cup, it depends on the results of the matches against Arsenal, Newcastle and Brighton.

Ten Hag himself is also confident in turning the situation around. After the loss at Selhurst Park, the former Ajax coach said: “I am absolutely the right person to turn the situation around.

In the remaining 4 matches this season, the FA Cup final is considered a lifeline for Ten Hag. If they defeat Man City at Wembley on May 25, Ten Hag will likely be given a chance in a third season at Old Trafford.
