Erik ten Hag told to pack up and leave Manchester United after ‘amateur’ display vs Brentford in 4-0 drubbing

Published on

Erik ten Hag's life at Manchester United is becoming increasingly difficult, and the Dutchman has been advised to consider packing his belongings and leaving after only two Premier League matches.


Erik ten Hag told to pack up and leave Manchester United after ‘amateur’ display vs Brentford in 4-0 drubbing

Former Aston Villa captain Gabby Agbonlahor said he would tell Erik ten Hag to “just pack up” if he was in the Manchester United hierarchy.

The  Manchester United manager stood helpless as his team was decimated by a four-goal blitz from Brentford in the first half.

Ten Hag and his injured players were harshly criticized after losing their first Premier League match against Brighton and Hove Albion, but this was a new low for Manchester United.

Two errors by David de Gea allowed Josh Dasilva and Mathias Jensen to put Thomas Frank’s side up by two goals, before Ben Mee and Bryan Mbeumo sealed the game with two goals in five minutes.

And Agbonlahor believes Ten Hag is already on shaky ground after a disastrous start to life in the Premier League.

“This is not Manchester United,” he said to talkSPORT. “If I was them now after this game I’d be thinking, ‘You know what, Ten Hag, just pack up’.

“He’s had pre-season and they have started the season as a shambles, they’re like strangers on the pitch. They’re just not good enough, [David] De Gea must know that [Christian] Eriksen has got a man behind him, use your brain and you don’t give it to him, Man City wouldn’t even give it to Rodri in that position. Amateur from Manchester United.”

Ten Hag sat on the United bench, stunned, as Brentford ripped through his side. And Agbonlahor believes that more misery for United fans is on the way.

“They’re not United they’re divided, none of them are working for each other. Look at them, they’re like strangers on the pitch,” Agbonlador added. “[Lisandro] Martinez at centre back, he’s meant to be the centre-back to come in and help them, he looks lost in the Premier League.

“I’ve been hammering United and people are saying I’ve got an agenda against Manchester United – no, I’m speaking facts that real Manchester United fans will agree with. You’re just not the same Manchester United that you used to be.

“These results have been coming. Last week you lost and it wasn’t shocking, and this isn’t a shock to me. I knew Brentford would win, this is not a shock to me.”
