Ten Hag’s future at United appears to be in jeopardy following Monday night’s 4-0 loss to Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

Michael Olise, Jean-Phillipe Mateta, and Tyrick Mitchell’s goals completely destroyed United; as a result, the team has now given up 81 goals this season, the most in a single season since 1977.

Tyler further asserted that, in lieu of Ten Hag, United ought to look for an English manager, mentioning Southgate and Everton manager Dyche as possibilities.

“I’ve said Manchester United should consider Sean Dyche,” the former Sky Sports pundit remarked.

“Gareth Southgate is being considered by Manchester United we believe and Sean maybe as well because it’s a fresh point of view.

“And they need some freshness and they need a different point of view. A different sense of purpose.

“And maybe if you were sitting around a table with all those new influences at Manchester United, you could make the point and make the case that actually what you do need is something a bit closer to home.

“It was tough for David Moyes because it was straight off the back of Fergie. You know, it’s a terribly difficult job to follow and since then, people have come and gone without.

“Have Manchester United lost that DNA that they had? I would suggest they probably have. So maybe somebody who’s grown up in the country where Manchester United have had all those years of success and looked upon with such reverence by so many people that, maybe that’s the way forward.”

Transfer guru Santi Aouna claims that United’s “top target” in the event that Ten Hag is fired is England manager Gareth Southgate.

Even though no agreement has been reached, the reporter claimed that things might “develop soon”.
