Mourinho the man for Red Devils says Collymore

Ten Hag may have next job lined up if sacked by Manchester United

The 2023/24 Premier League campaign is coming to a close, and Erik ten Hag might well find himself out of a job at the end of the season.

The Man United manager has presided over a team that is disjointed and uninterested for the most part, and it’s difficult to see how the Dutchman can continue into next season.

“I’m increasingly coming round to the fact that one man in world football still has that ability to galvanise and who would relish the challenge.
