Manchester United: Gary Neville says Erik ten Hag deserves another season to turn things around

Erik ten Hag

Gary Neville believes Erik ten Hag should be given another season to turn things around at Manchester United.

The Dutch manager’s second season in charge at Old Trafford has been hugely disappointing, with the Red Devils losing a club-record 13 Premier League games in 2023-24.

United’s poor campaign reached a new low with a miserable 4-0 defeat at Crystal Palace on Monday, a result which left many to insist Ten Hag’s time is up.

But former skipper Neville says the lack of alternatives out there – as the Red Devils manager’s promising first campaign in charge which saw them lift the Carabao Cup – should be enough to keep the 54-year-old at the helm.

The Sky Sports pundit said: “I don’t see any suitable replacements out there at this moment in time.

“Bayern Munich are struggling to find a replacement for their manager. Other clubs are struggling as well.

“I think we should stick with Erik ten Hag, give him one more season – particularly an injury-free season, we’ve had a lot of injuries this season.

“So I would say one more season would be worthy to see if we can get back to the standards of last season, where we won a trophy and finished in the top four and got Champions League football.”

United’s poor recent form has seen them slip as low as eighth in the Premier League, though they have reached the FA Cup final for the second consecutive season.
