Coach Erik ten Hag may be sensing that he's in a precarious situation at Manchester United, with the looming threat of dismissal engulfing Old Trafford.
A recent defeat at home against Galatasaray in the Champions League has exacerbated the crisis the team is experiencing this season. In their last 10 matches, the Red Devils have suffered 6 losses and conceded a total of 18 goals, a profoundly negative record unseen since the 1966/67 season.
Previously, there was information related to Erik Ten Hag having the intention to drop Harry Maguire. What's most alarming for fans is that these recent losses have come against teams of similar or even lower caliber, including Tottenham, Crystal Palace, Arsenal, Brighton, Bayern, and Galatasaray.
This string of negative results has shaken confidence in Ten Hag's project and left the team in a dire situation in the Premier League standings.
Furthermore, the likelihood of being eliminated in the Champions League group stage seems higher than ever, as Manchester United started the tournament with two consecutive defeats, an unprecedented occurrence in the club's history. They find themselves in a group that isn't overly challenging, but the performance of Ten Hag and his players has been unacceptable.
According to Fichajes, Erik Ten Hag's future is under threat, and if the team's results do not show improvement in the near future, the former Ajax manager could potentially depart from Manchester United during the upcoming winter transfer window.
Despite the mounting pressure surrounding his "hot seat" at the Theatre of Dreams, Ten Hag appears calm and confident in his ability to turn the situation around. The upcoming match against Brentford is undoubtedly a precious opportunity for the Dutch strategist to alleviate the tension at Old Trafford.
A victory in the upcoming fixture could provide a positive boost heading into the FIFA international break, but any other result could potentially mark the end of the 54-year-old coach's tenure at Manchester United.
