There are rumours that Erik ten Hag already has a job lined up for when pressure mounts on the Dutchman at Manchester United.

Following United’s lackluster 23/24 season debut, Ten Hag’s position at Old Trafford appears to be in doubt.

The Red Devils’ Champions League season ended prematurely following a dismal group stage, and they are now sixth in the Premier League standings.

With the latest investment from INEOS CEO and British billionaire Sir Jim Ratcliffe, questions have been raised about Ten Hag’s future.

On the other hand, rumours have it that Ten Hag may already have a job lined up for him. The Independent said that Ajax, Ten Hag’s previous team, would be open to collaborating with the Dutchman once more.

Before United enticed the 54-year-old to leave the Amsterdam team, he played for five seasons there. Ten Hag won two KNVP Cups and three Eredivisie championships while playing for Ajax.

Speaking recently about his future, Ten Hag said: “I’m here, I’m under contract for three seasons, so I don’t care. I’m only focusing on the process so I don’t care what’s going around me.

“I have many talks with Jim Ratcliffe but especially also with Sir Dave Brailsford so I know what we are talking about. I have a strong belief and I feel that they believe in me.”

He continued: “I’m just focusing on the team and I have to find solutions for this team that they perform in the best way they can. It’s all about focusing on this and don’t get distracted by any noise.

“We’re talking about the future, we’re talking about a future together.”

Sunday afternoon will see United return to Premier League action at the Etihad Stadium as they take on local rivals and defending champions Manchester City.
