Manchester United chief executive Richard Arnold gives verdict on manager Erik ten Hag’s job security
Manchester United chief executive Richard Arnold assured the club’s staff of his utmost confidence in manager Erik ten Hag.
Telegraph reported that Arnold held an intense Zoom meeting with the club’s staff to answer anonymous questions over varieties of issues.
The staff member anonymously asked several questions about on-field performances and summer transfer deals.
United are currently lying on 13th position in the Premier League after the dreadful start to the season. The Red Devils have lost three out of five matches played so far this season.
Arnold sincerely emphasised the club hierarchy’s belief in Ten Hag as the manager is just in the second season of his regime. The Dutchman managed to secure a Champions League spot last season by finishing third and winning the Carabao Cup.
Ten Hag admitted to facing pressure after losing the home game against Brighton & Hove Albion. He said:
The Dutchman definitely deserves more time to sort out the problematic situation United is facing right now. The Red Devils are facing an injury crisis as many first-team players are out of action for prolonged periods.
A situation like this doesn’t help United build the level of consistency required to compete in the Premier League.

We hope that the no-holds-barred meeting helped the disgruntled staff members ease their trouble. Clubs need to get together and stand firm during these struggling times as fans patiently wait for positive changes.
The loss against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League earlier today will do him no favours. We need to get back to winning ways fast, or else the pressure will keep building on the players and the manager.
