Manchester United’s boss Erik ten Hag’s future hangs in the balance when they face Luton Town at Old Trafford on Saturday.
Alan Brazil, a popular football analyst, believes that failing to win this seemingly critical game will result in Ten Hag’s removal.
‘Manchester United have to beat Luton, if they don’t Ten Hag is gone,’ Alan Brazil said. ‘He’s a goner.
‘He won’t go from what I hear before December. But after December 1 he’s in big danger. I don’t think it’s going to happen until after December so I’m talking about financial (reasons).
‘I’ve nothing against Ten Hag but I honestly believe they’re not playing for him and I think he’s lost the dressing room. I’m sure he’s lost it.’
The Dutchman has had a difficult start to the season, which resulted in a humiliating Champions League defeat to FC Copenhagen on Wednesday.
United, who were already behind in the Premier League, are now on the verge of losing their European hopes after a devastating collapse against an underrated Danish club.
The upcoming home game against Luton Town appears to be a lifeline for Ten Hag, giving a chance to acquire a little rest before the international break.
Meanwhile, Alan Brazil believes that anything less than a three-point win will mean the end of Ten Hag’s management term.
Despite these allegations, striker Rasmus Hojlund insists that the players are rallying around their ailing coach during this trying season.
