Sir Jim Ratcliffe has made a decision on Man United manager Erik ten Hag’s short-term future

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag will remain in charge until at least the end of the season, according to the Guardian.

Man United have struggled to maintain consistency in the Premier League this season and face a daunting task to finish in the top four.

The Red Devils’ results over the last three months have been better. Their recent thrilling 4-3 win over Liverpool has also fuelled positivity around the club.

Man United’s new co-owner, Sir Jim Ratcliffe, has been impressed by Ten Hag. 

However, the manager has received no guarantees that he will remain with the club beyond this season.

A defeat against Liverpool at Old Trafford could have hampered Ten Hag’s chances of remaining as Man United manager. 

Knocking out the Reds with an injury-time winner has boosted his chances.

Ratcliffe has reportedly settled on Gareth Southgate as his preferred replacement for Ten Hag, which is a terrible idea.

Southgate has failed to win trophies with England’s star-studded squad and would be unpopular with the fans.

Ten Hag showed promise in his debut season at Old Trafford, but his team has failed to maintain consistency.

Recurring injuries to key players have not helped his cause.

Diogo Dalot, Bruno Fernandes and Alejandro Garnacho are the only three outfield players who have not missed a game due to injury this season.

He has a strong case to be handed another season at the Theatre of Dreams. However, Champions League qualification may play a key role in the final decision.
