EPL: It’s a shame – Man Utd told to sack Ten Hag immediately

Former Liverpool player Danny Murphy has suggested that Manchester United should terminate the contract of their manager, Erik ten Hag, immediately following their humiliating 3-0 defeat to Bournemouth in the Premier League over the weekend.

Expressing his disappointment, Murphy believes it’s regrettable but necessary for Manchester United to part ways with Ten Hag, asserting that the Red Devils’ managerial position may have come too soon for him.

Following Bournemouth’s convincing victory at Old Trafford on Saturday, Ten Hag’s team now finds themselves in sixth position on the Premier League table.

Murphy commented on the situation, stating, “The victory over Chelsea in midweek papered over the cracks. Chelsea cut through them countless times. Bournemouth scored three, and it could have been four. This result was only confirmation that United are in trouble.”

Highlighting the potential risks ahead for Manchester United, Murphy emphasized the importance of avoiding a scenario where they suffer a significant defeat at Anfield, drawing attention to their previous 7-2 loss there in March. He suggested that a similar collapse could prompt a managerial change.

While Murphy had initially thought Manchester United might give Ten Hag until the end of the season, he now believes that for the club to achieve its goals, a change in management might be necessary immediately. Despite expressing sympathy for Ten Hag as a likeable individual, Murphy suggests that the Manchester United job may have been a bit premature for him.

The Gunners are two points behind Manchester City heading into the final fixtures. Mikel Arteta’s squad can only clinch the championship if they defeat Everton and City drop points against West Ham.

In his programme notes for Sunday’s season finale, Kroenke wrote: “While we are undoubtedly proud of the progress we have made, I want to be clear that no one at the club will stand still.

“Regardless of today’s outcome, we are all working behind the scenes to push us forward – always forward.

“There is so much that we want to achieve, both domestically and in Europe, and we are focused on creating exciting new stories and chapters that build on the history of Arsenal Football Club.”
