United decides to dismiss Ten Hag after the Coventry disaster, and a surprise in his replacement

The Daily Mail revealed that Sir Jim Ratcliffe, owner of Manchester United, has decided to dismiss Erik ten Hag at the end of the current season, regardless of the results next month.

The new owner’s decision came against the backdrop of United’s miserable performance in the FA Cup semi-final, and how it was on its way to defeat with Coventry City despite leading 3-0 until the 71st minute.

The belief of Ratcliffe and the United management became clear that Ten Hag is not the ideal man for the job, and that even if the club signs new players, it is not certain that the Dutchman can develop them and achieve the desired results.

Even if Ten Hag succeeds in defeating Manchester City in the FA Cup final next May 25 at Wembley Stadium, dismissal has become inevitable, including if a miracle happens and he reaches the Champions League places.

According to the German newspaper “Bild”, Thomas Tuchel tops the list of those who will succeed Ten Hag, as there have already been negotiations between the German coach and the English club in recent days, and Ratcliffe is considered one of the biggest admirers of the current Bayern Munich coach.

Tuchel had reached an agreement with Bayern Munich to leave next summer after a decline in results this season. He also previously announced his desire to return to the Premier League, where he had previously led Chelsea for nearly two years.

The name of Graham Potter, the former Chelsea and Brighton coach, also appears as a possible option if Tuchel is not signed, while the third option is the current England national team coach, Gareth Southgate.
