Graham Potter touted as the next Manchester Uniter manager

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is already aware that he will be dismissed at the end of the season. According to The Sun several of the Red Devils players have confirmed that in recent weeks they have noticed a change in the Dutch specialist’s behavior, indicating that ten Hag has reconciled with his fate.

Despite the results the team achieved in the derbies with Liverpool, United has only one win in their last six Premier League matches and is trailing by 11 points from the fourth and fifth place, so qualifying for the Champions League seems practically impossible. Last Friday, Ten Hag assured at his press conference that there is no doubt he will stay for the next season, but the change in his mood suggests otherwise. The new Manchester United’s new co-owner, Sir Jim Ratcliffe, is still to publicly back Erik ten Hag, hinting at possible change at the helm of the club in near future.

Reports from The Sun indicate that Graham Potter, previously at Chelsea and Brighton, has met with Ratcliffe and is poised to lead the Red Devils. This is cited as the exact reason why he declined the position of Ajax’ manager last week.
