May this chaos be blessed. The tenure of Erik Ten Hag at Manchester United has been a tumultuous journey, encompassing both remarkable achievements and significant setbacks. Presently, the team finds themselves in a rather desperate predicament.
During November, Ten Hag, alongside Harry Maguire and Alejandro Garnacho, received deserved accolades in the Premier League, with Ten Hag being named Manager of the Month, Maguire as Player of the Month, and Garnacho for Goal of the Month. However, their recent displays have been far from impressive. They suffered defeats against Newcastle and Bournemouth, exhibiting a lackluster performance on both occasions. It’s even worse because they were knocked out of the Champions League by Bayern Munich, who seemed to be playing with only half their usual strength. The uncertainty surrounding the club is also heightened by the ongoing INEOS takeover, which has not given any definite answers yet. Additionally, the team is struggling with the absence of important players due to injuries and suspensions. Although it may not be a complete crisis at the moment, a humiliating loss in the upcoming game could potentially push United into a downward spiral that could be hard to bounce back from.
