Omar Berrada set to have a major say on any decision taken over Erik ten Hag’s Man Utd future

Omar Berrada is reportedly set to have a significant say on manager Erik ten Hag’s future at Manchester United. 

Manchester Evening News report co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe does not want to intervene to decide the Dutchman’s future and plans to delegate to Berrada. 

Ratcliffe convinced the experienced executive to join United in January after serving as Manchester City’s chief football operating officer for many years. 

He is currently on gardening leave at City but is poised to take charge as the Red Devils’ chief executive this summer. 

INEOS sporting director Sir Dave Brailsford has attended most of United’s matches since the petrochemicals company completed the purchase of a 27.7 percent stake in the club. 

However, Brailsford will reportedly not decide Ten Hag’s future at Old Trafford as that responsibility will mainly lie with Berrada. 

The Dutch boss led his side to a spectacular 4-3 FA Cup success over Liverpool earlier this month.  

But it is not guaranteed to continue as manager beyond this summer as United will likely miss out on Champions League qualification.

Ratcliffe has reportedly settled on current England boss Gareth Southgate as a potential replacement. 

Southgate dismissed the rumours last week, insisting he is only focused on delivering the 2024 European Championship to England. 

Ten Hag was successful in his debut campaign, guiding his side to a third-place Premier League finish and Carabao Cup victory. 

The Red Devils have endured an underwhelming 2023-24 season under the 54-year-old, and his future is uncertain.
