Manchester United’s top executives, Richard Arnold and John Murtough, may find themselves in an awkward position if they decide to part ways with Erik ten Hag following the team’s dismal start to the season.

The Red Devils suffered a humiliating 3-0 defeat by Newcastle at Old Trafford, leading to their elimination from the Carabao Cup. As a result, the Dutch boss is facing growing scrutiny and criticism.

In the current season, United has lost half of their ten Premier League matches and faced defeats in the Champions League against Bayern Munich and Galatasaray.

Supporters are growing increasingly frustrated with the team’s style of play, and doubts are surfacing about Ten Hag’s ability to reverse the situation.

This situation is in stark contrast to just a few weeks ago when CEO Arnold and football director Murtough were reportedly considering offering Ten Hag a new contract.

In September, reports suggested that the pair had been pleased with Ten Hag and continued to support him despite the team’s poor start.

The rapid shift from discussing a contract extension to contemplating sacking Ten Hag in just over a month could raise questions about the decision-making behind the scenes.

This development comes at a time of uncertainty in the club’s boardroom, with Sir Jim Ratcliffe aiming to acquire a 25% stake in United and take control of the sporting side of the club.

INEOS’s chief has already criticized the club’s signing of Casemiro, and a sudden about-face regarding the team’s most influential figure could send the wrong message to Ratcliffe.

Club legend Gary Neville has hinted at Ten Hag’s potential dismissal, expressing his disappointment on social media following United’s cup exit to Newcastle. He wrote, “Last night we witnessed the Theatre of Dreams turn into the Theatre of Nothing.

Every United fan was left bored and uninspired. On the pitch, the players looked stunned, their performances were abysmal, and the manager appeared to be struggling right before our eyes. We’ve seen this before, we know how it ends, and we’ve had enough.”

With a series of upcoming matches against Fulham, Copenhagen, Luton, and Everton, Ten Hag, along with Murtaugh and Arnold, will be hoping for positive performances and victories to turn the tide.

Failure to do so might leave both club executives in an embarrassing position, considering their recent support for a new contract for the Dutchman.
