Michael Owen Urges Manchester United to Consider Erik Ten Hag’s Future Ahead of FA Cup Final

Manchester United Erik Ten Hag

Michael Owen has intensified calls for Manchester United to part ways with Erik Ten Hag ahead of the FA Cup final, labeling the Dutch manager as unfit to lead the club into the next season.

Following a disheartening 4-0 loss to Crystal Palace, even Ten Hag himself acknowledged it as the lowest point of their current campaign. With Manchester United historically never finishing below seventh in the Premier League era, the looming threat of ending this season below that mark has escalated concerns among fans and pundits alike.

Despite Ten Hag’s insistence that he’s the right candidate to steer the club forward, Owen remains adamant in his stance against the manager. Speaking on Premier League Productions, Owen reiterated his long-held belief that Ten Hag is not the right fit for Manchester United’s managerial role.

As the FA Cup final against Manchester City looms, Owen foresees a grim outlook for United, suggesting that they are poised for further disappointment against top-tier opponents. He expressed concerns about United’s upcoming fixtures, suggesting that their performance under Ten Hag’s leadership doesn’t inspire confidence, even for crucial matches that could determine their European football fate next season.

In light of these concerns, Owen raised the question of whether the club’s board should consider a radical change before the season concludes. He emphasized that Ten Hag’s tenure has been marked by consistent underperformance and asserted that he lacks the caliber required to manage a club of Manchester United’s stature.
