After the historic defeat by Crystal Palace.. Ten Hag: I am the ideal coach for United!

Manchester United coach, Erik Ten Hag, defended himself after the heavy defeat that the Red Devils suffered 4-0 from Crystal Palace on Monday in the English Premier League.

The Dutch coach’s future remains at stake with the change in management of Manchester United in recent months and the decline in results that threatens the team’s participation in any European championship next season.

What did Ten Hag say after the defeat by Crystal Palace?

“Without any doubt, I am the ideal coach to turn things around for the better at United,” Ten Hag told the media when asked if he was the ideal choice for United as coach.

He also added, “If the right players are available to us, we have a good team, but we are losing all the defensive line players. We have clear problems due to injuries.”

Will Ten Hag leave Manchester United after the end of the season?

When Ten Hag was asked about his future with United, he replied, “I am not thinking about that at the present moment.”

He concluded, “We have a lot of problems, so all I do is prepare the team in the best way possible. All I focus on is to perform better.”

Bayern Munich is interested in signing Ten Hag

In recent hours, German media reported that Bayern Munich officials contacted Ten Hag’s agent to explore his position on coaching the Bavarian club next season.

In principle, Ten Hag would welcome a return to the Allianz Arena, but his priority is still to continue as Manchester United coach next season.

It is noteworthy that Ten Hag worked for a period as coach of the reserve team in Bayern Munich, and he currently enjoys great support from the Bavarian administration, in light of the officials’ belief in him technically, in contrast to what he finds at United recently.

What did Ten Hag do with Manchester United this season?

Manchester United, with Ten Hag, failed in Europe this season, as it finished at the bottom of its group in the Champions League and exited the continental competitions early.

United failed to maintain the Carabao Cup shield after exiting the competition in the fourth round following a heavy loss to Newcastle United 4-0.

The only success that can be mentioned is United’s qualification to the FA Cup Final, but even that came after a very poor match against Coventry City in the semi-final that was decided on penalties.

United currently occupies eighth place in the English Premier League with only 54 points, which means that it is outside European competitions next season, as well as the worst ranking in the history of the Red Devils since the start of the Premier League era.
