Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has been told that he will not last longer in a job than Mauricio Pochettino at Chelsea after being warned again that he could face the sack. The Dutchman has come under fire for his public lambasting of Jadon Sancho, while also suffering two defeats already in the Premier League so far this season, and the pressure appears to be ramping up on the Red Devils head coach.

Ten Hag called out Sancho for what he perceived to be poor performances in training, having not named the £72million man in his squad for the 3-1 defeat away to Arsenal before the international break. Sancho hit back on social media, while dysfunction at Old Trafford continues to rage on.

The head coach has previously been warned that he will lose his job if he continues to play Anthony Martial, and former Liverpool defender Jose Enrique has claimed that the situation between Ten Hag and United won’t “end well”, tipping the Dutchman to be sacked after this season.

“I don’t think things are going to end well for Erik ten Hag at Manchester United,” Enrique told Grosvenor Sport. “I loved the way he handled things last season, but with the Jadon Sancho situation this season, I don’t know why he did what he did in putting the whole dressing room against him.

“I have a feeling that Ten Hag won’t be sacked this season, but in the future he will be sacked before the likes of Mauricio Pochettino at Chelsea. After a very good season last season I expected Manchester United to be in a much better position at the moment.

“Obviously there have been other factors like the Jadon Sancho situation which Erik ten Hag spoke publicly about, as well as the Antony situation.”

United host Brighton on Saturday as they look to get back on track and dispel the negativity surrounding the club over the past two weeks, but Enrique has warned Ten Hag that further misery could be dealt by Roberto De Zerbi’s side, while the ongoing takeover saga is not helping.

“Manchester United have reached the point now where if they start games poorly the atmosphere in the stadium turns,” he added. “The fans don’t necessarily turn against the players but they start to go against the owners and it almost makes the game seem less important.

“If Brighton start well at Old Trafford this weekend, then they can take advantage of that. I actually believe that, even though United are at home, the game is more than 50/50 in Brighton’s favour.

“That just shows the situation that Manchester United are in right now and I think Brighton will end up beating them 2-1.”
