‘Six Man Utd players would like to see Ten Hag sacked – he’s got one more game’

Ex-Aston Villa forward turned talkSPORT pundit Gabby Agbonlahor believes there are "five or six players" that want to see Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag get the sack.

Things at Old Trafford this season are not going well for ten Hag and co, who were dumped out of the Carabao Cup in midweek by Newcastle United 3-0 in embarrassing fashion. Just days prior, they also suffered a humiliating defeat to rivals Manchester City, once again at Old Trafford, 3-0, in a game that highlighted the sheer gulf in class between the two sides.

Off the pitch, talk of Sir Jim Ratcliffe's potential purchase of 25 per cent of the club has dominated the headlines. But while the INEOS billionaire's offer to take up sporting control from the Glazer family is weighed up, results on the pitch under ten Hag have been middling to calamitous.

Despite a positive season last term, which saw United qualify for the Champions League and win the Carabao Cup, the club sit eighth in the table through 10 games, with their most recently two Premier League wins seeing them need a miracle Scott McTominay injury-time brace to beat Brentford, and a Diogo Dalot wonder strike to beat bottom of the table Sheffield United 2-1.

And talkSPORT's Gabby Agbonlahor reckons it's easy to tell which players want ten Hag gone in the near future. "You look at Manchester United now, you can name five or six players that would like Ten Hag to get fired so they can get a better chance under a new manager," said Agbonlahor.

How much longer will Erik ten Hag last as Manchester United boss? Let us know in the comments section below.

"Players will talk about it. I think he's got one more game, I do, I think he's got one more game. Then when a new manager comes in, everyone's brought in. Players that weren't involved are brought in."

While ten Hag was not dismissed following the defeats to Man City and Newcastle, the next few weeks could see the Dutchman put under monumental pressure at Old Trafford if results do not improve. United take on Fulham this weekend at Craven Cottage needing a win following a disastrous couple of days.

Then after that, they return to Champions League action to face Copenhagen, whom they only beat back at the end of October thanks to an injury-time Andre Onana penalty save.

And failure to pick up maximum points from their fixtures against Fulham, Copenhagen and then Luton Town before the international break could see ten Hag handed his P45 at Old Trafford.
