The Mirror report that Ten Hag’s camp have been left fuming by the transfer window as a whole, with Christian Eriksen, Tyrell Malacia and Lisandro Martinez the only names through the door at present.
This comes despite the departures of Paul Pogba, Edinson Cavani and Juan Mata among others shedding over £1m per week on the wage bill, only for most of it not to be reinvested.
It is added that the advisors are said to believe that the 52-year-old has been ‘hung out to dry’ for their failure to secure main targets and dreadful start to the new campaign.
Manchester United’s nightmare start
Manchester United’s opening game of the season saw them fall to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Brighton, with the Seagulls picking up their first ever win at Old Trafford.
As bad as that game was, though, there was signs of promise, especially in the opening 20 minutes and late on when Fred was taken off for Cristiano Ronaldo and Christian Eriksen was moved into the no.6 role.
Vs Brentford on Saturday, though, Manchester United were a complete shambles.
David de Gea, in particular, had a nightmare and was the main reason Brentford scored at least three of their four goals on the day.
That drubbing saw Manchester United end a day bottom of the Premier League for the first time since August 1992. Erik ten Hag also became the first United manager to lose his opening two outings as boss.
