Manchester United’s Managerial Woes: Roberto De Zerbi setback?
Ratcliffe is anticipated to complete his minority stake soon; the owner of INEOS will pay approximately £1.4 billion for a quarter of the team.
Even though there are contradicting reports indicating Ratcliffe does not want to fire Ten Hag, uncertainty about the Dutchman’s future persists.
Out of their 21 competitive games this season, Man United has won 10, drawn one, and lost 10. They have failed to reach their best form.
After losing to Newcastle United on Saturday, they are currently in seventh place in the Premier League league and face elimination from the Champions League group stage.
Man United appears to be monitoring De Zerbi’s condition, with Ten Hag under pressure to produce regular performances.
However, Football Insider claims that they have suffered a serious setback to their chances of hiring him in the future.
The Brighton board wants to give De Zerbi a new contract because they are pleased with his work since he was hired in September 2022.
De Zerbi, who has also been connected to Real Madrid, is open to the idea of staying on the South Coast club past his current deal, which expires in June 2026.
For the first time in the team’s existence, the Italian led the Seagulls to a sixth-place result in the previous campaign and European football.
They defeated AEK Athens 1-0 on Thursday away to ensure their advancement to the Europa League knockout stages.
The Seagulls still have 22 points, which puts them in the top half of the Premier League table, despite their Sunday loss to Chelsea.
