Manchester United are targeting Premier League manager with 33% win record to replace Erik ten Hag

Manchester United seem to have found a replacement for Erik ten Hag

As reported by Football Transfers (h/t Manchester Evening News), Manchester United are looking at Thomas Frank as a possible replacement for Erik ten Hag. The Brentford coach has a win percentage of just 33%.

The Danish coach has managed a total of 105 games for Brentford, winning 35, losing 26 and drawing 44. While on the surface it seems like Frank has done a terrible job, that might not be the case.

Through those 105 games, the Dane’s team has scored 147 goals while conceding 156. Only a nine-goal difference. So a lot of his team’s losses have been way closer than it seems on the surface.

Brentford are also not the most talented bunch out there. So, for Frank to achieve so much with this team is huge. He is also the only manager since 1946/47 to lead the Bees to the Premier League.

It’s exciting to think how much damage the Danish manager could do if he is put in charge of a talented team like Manchester United. However, the result might not be what the fans expect since the Red Devils are at a completely different level than Brentford.

Everything from the expectations to the atmosphere of the city and the club are completely different. Now, Frank might be an amazing manager but success isn’t guaranteed in football.
