Gabby Agbonlahor warns Manchester united managerial target
The 35-year-old believes that the situation at Manchester United is a ‘nightmare’ and if he were in Ten Hag’s situation, he ‘would not join’ the Red Devils.
As per Football Insider, the Red Devils are set to trigger the Dutchman’s release clause with Ajax having already chosen him as their new manager.
But Agbonlahor has warned the 52-year-old that he would have to deal with ‘a ridiculous amount of problems’ if he takes over from Ralf Rangnick.
“If I was Ten Hag, I, personally, would not join Man United. They have got a ridiculous amount of problems. Where do you even start with Man United? It’s a nightmare.“What I took out of the Liverpool game with Man City was how far ahead they are of Chelsea and Man United and anyone else. They are a million miles ahead.”
Agbonlahor has suggested that only Bruno Fernandes and Luke Shaw should make the new XI under Ten Hag if they have ‘to get anywhere close’ to their rivals. He added:
“Manchester United need a whole new team. I like Bruno Fernandes and I like Luke Shaw but apart from that they need a whole new XI to get anywhere close. I’d take four or five out of the starting team now and put them on the bench.”
Erik ten Hag will certainly have a mountain to climb if he takes the Manchester United job
Needless to say, Erik Ten Hag will have a monumental task on his hands if he takes the Manchester United job this summer. On top of that, the way the Red Devils have operated in recent years makes his job even tougher.
Ten Hag, however, looks like the perfect candidate to rebuild the team from stratch.
He is a progressive manager with an identity of his own and loves to play on the front foot.
However, for Ten Hag to succeed, he will need all the backing and no interference from the board.
The Ajax manager has a big decision to make and must be guaranteed that his demands are met before he takes on the reign at Old Trafford.
