Pochettino vs Ten Hag: Former Liverpool star predicts who will be sacked first

Dutchman Erik ten Hag took over at Old Trafford last season, and guided Manchester United to their first major trophy in six years as the Red Devils won the Carabao Cup.

The Dutchman also led United to the FA Cup final and the Premier League top four, in what was more than a satisfying campaign.

Nevertheless, former Liverpool defender Jose Enrique has predicted that Ten Hag will be sacked before Chelsea manager, Mauricio Pochettino.

United have struggled this term, having lost two of their opening four Premier League games to Arsenal and Tottenham respectively, and the atmosphere in the dressing room also seems chaotic.

“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.”
