Erik ten Hag stands to beat Sir Alex Ferguson’s record if Manchester United win against Tottenham on Sunday
Erik ten Hag who has been having a rough go at the helm this season now stands to overtake Sir Alex Ferguson in win percentage. The Dutchman has been dealing with a depleted squad for most of the season.
This has led to them being knocked out of the Champions League and the Carabao Cup. Additionally, the Red Devils are sitting eighth on the Premier League table. While it looks like this season has been a disaster for Ten Hag, the same cannot be said about his stint at Old Trafford.
The Dutchman’s squad last season was a force to be reckoned with. They finished third in the Premier League en route to a win in the Carabao Cup finals. His record from last season has helped him get closer to Sir Alex in win percentage.
Ten Hag currently sits at 59.3% of matches won as the Manchester United coach. Sir Alex at the time of retirement stepped down with a win percentage of 59.7% as illustrated by Sky Sports.
A win against the Tottenham Hotspur will allow the Dutchman to take the lead over Sir Alex Ferguson. While everyone has been critical of Ten Hag’s time at the helm, it seems like he has done more good than most give him credit for.
This is what usually happens when people form their opinions from social media instead of watching teams play the beautiful game. However, Sir Alex’s time at the helm was longer so the comparison is a bit unfair.
