Another European giant decides to dismiss its coach!

The Guardian newspaper reported that the Manchester United management decided to dismiss coach Erik ten Hag, regardless of the outcome of the FA Cup final on Saturday.

Ten Hag’s contract still runs until the summer of 2025, but United’s disappointing season and mediocre performance led to the club’s new owner, Sir Jim Ratcliffe, deciding to expedite his departure.

The new management of the Red Devils believes that Ten Hag has nothing new to offer, and it is said that it informed him two weeks ago of the decision to dismiss him, regardless of what will be achieved by the end of the season.

United finished the Premier League in eighth place, which is the worst position the team has achieved in the history of its participation in the Premier League, and it also exited the Champions League at the bottom of its group.

United will play the FA Cup final against Manchester City at Wembley Stadium, and even if they succeed in winning, the decision to dismiss has been taken and is irreversible.

The name of Kieran McKenna, who led Ipswich Town to qualify for the Premier League, is at the top of the candidates to succeed Ten Hag, especially since he previously worked at United, but as an assistant coach with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Thus, United joins the list of major European clubs that sacked their coaches at the end of the season, led by Barcelona, ​​Juventus, Milan, and Bayern Munich.
