Man Utd have held talks with the representatives of Brentford manager Thomas Frank

Manchester United have held discussions with the representatives of Brentford manager Thomas Frank, according to The Telegraph.

The Red Devils registered an impressive 2-1 win over Manchester City in the FA Cup final but there is still uncertainty over manager Erik ten Hag’s future.

The club are likely to assess the Dutchman’s position in a season review this week but it is claimed that he is at serious risk of being dismissed from his role.

The Telegraph now report that United have made contact with the agents of Frank as they continue to explore their options ahead of a final decision on Ten Hag.

United should stick with Ten Hag next season

Ten Hag had a difficult 2023/24 campaign amid numerous defensive injuries. He had to constantly change his central defensive combination over the whole season.

As a result, the club ended up eighth in the top-flight with 60 points, but they managed to salvage their season by outsmarting Manchester City in the FA Cup final.

The Red Devils have now won silverware for two years on the bounce. They are also guaranteed to play in the Europa League group stage after the Wembley triumph.

In our view, the result should work in Ten Hag’s favour. The hierarchy should decide to keep him.

Frank has done a credible job at Brentford with a tight transfer budget, but we don’t believe it would be a forward step, considering his playing style relies more on counter-attacks.

The 50-year-old may be on United’s managerial shortlist but a change would disrupt continuity. Ten Hag deserves another year at the helm to improve the club’s league fortunes.
