Erik Ten Hag to Be Replaced by Gareth Southgate and Roberto De Zerbi on the Manchester United Shortlist: Reports

<p>Erik Ten Hag seems to be leading Manchester United through a turbulent season, and as a result, the Red Devils are having a terrible season. Bad news often follows poor performances. According to the most recent sources, United is considering replacing the Dutchman, as many individuals have been placed on a shortlist.</p>

<p>Although it’s unlikely that Ten Hag’s status will be decided until the conclusion of the season, it’s been said that the players anticipate his dismissal in the summer.</p>
<p>Regarding potential Ten Hag successors at Old Trafford, a few candidates have already made headlines; the most high-profile of them all is the much sought-after Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi.</p>
<p>At the moment, De Zerbi is one of the most sought-after managers in all of football, with teams like Barcelona, Chelsea, and now United vying for the services of the attack-oriented Italian.</p>
<p>However, in a sad turn of events, United’s selections now include the hotly contested and contentious Gareth Southgate.</p>
<p>While he has guided England to both a FIFA World Cup semi-final and a Euro final, Southgate’s reputation for benching young players who are on the rise is well documented.</p>
<p>United is in a difficult situation because, since the famous Sir Alex Ferguson left the team back in 2013, the team has been without the basis to develop a culture of success for years to come. They are in critical need of both immediate success and this culture.</p>
<p>United’s greatest problem is the same as it has been for the previous two seasons: consistency, despite their times of resiliency and the few but exceptional moments of brilliance.</p>
<p>Ten Hag’s carte blanche when it came to bringing players into the team this past summer, thus supporters of United would have expected the Dutchman to carve out a future for the team. However, it hasn’t happened.</p>
<p>Due to injuries to Rasmus Hojlund and other players who have struggled mightily this season, United were humiliated by rivals and reigning champions Manchester City last weekend, who easily defeated the Red Devils 3-1 at the Etihad.</p>
<p>United is currently in the running for only the FA Cup after losing out on the Carabao Cup and embarrassingly finishing dead last in the Champions League earlier this season. Currently, United are only 11 points away from fourth place in the Premier League, which would guarantee them a spot in the Champions League.</p>
<p>If the Red Devils keep playing like they’re miserable, the Dutchman may be shown the door with the arrival of new owner Jim Ratcliffe and an irate United.</p>
