According to Samuel Luckhurst of the Manchester Evening News, a tier-two source, the Manchester United dressing room is ‘split’ as Erik ten Hag emerges as the frontrunner to replace Ralf Rangnick at the end of the season.
A number of United players are reportedly excited about the prospect of playing under the Ajax boss and believe he would improve things. However, there is a section who view him as an ‘underwhelming’ choice.
The MEN understands that Mauricio Pochettino was the preferred candidate of a majority of players. However, at present, it looks like Ten Hag will get the job over the PSG boss.
There is a sense of ‘disenchantment’ within certain squad members overplaying under Ten Hag and the mood has dampened further after the 1-1 draw with Leicester City.
The Red Devils have taken time to interview different candidates but a decision could be announced before the end of this month.
