Manchester United is starting to put more strain on Erik ten Hag, and the club would incur no expenses in finding a suitable successor.
With a Champions League spot guaranteed and the Carabao Cup won, Ten Hag’s first season in charge was passable.
After a summer of heavy spending, it was anticipated going into the 23–24 season that United would contend with teams like Manchester City and Arsenal.
However, despite only earning 15 points from their first 10 league games, the Old Trafford team has had difficulty thus far.
After Wednesday night’s defeat against Newcastle United in the Carabao Cup, the pressure is now firmly on Ten Hag to deliver better results.
In recent days, the odds of Ten Hag being dismissed have been slashed with a list of potential candidates priced.
One of the favourites to replace Ten Hag is Graham Potter, who is currently unemployed after being sacked by Chelsea in April.
Because of the impending investment in United by British entrepreneur and INEOS CEO Sir Jim Ratcliffe, Potter is among the favorites.
Ratcliffe was reportedly pursuing Potter for the managerial position at Nice, a team in French Ligue 1. This was back in May.
Potter has been connected to Leicester and the Swedish national team since leaving Chelsea.
