Liverpool legend says Coventry City has ‘cost’ Erik ten Hag his Manchester United job

Coventry City display might’ve ‘cost’ Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag his job claims Liverpool legend

Manchester United fell back into their old habits but somehow managed to survive against Coventry City. Erik ten Hag and his team bottled yet another lead but luckily they were able to survive and headed into the finals.

However, Man United are supposed to be the biggest club in England. On the other hand, Coventry City are eighth on the Championship leaderboard. Surely, we can’t just forget that Man United almost lost a game to a Championship side, that too the biggest game of their season so far.

The people at Old Trafford won’t forget this either and it could have repercussions for the Red Devils’ manager, Erik ten Hag. Liverpool legend, Jamie Carragher shared his thoughts on the subject, let’s have a look. (h/t Manchester Evening News)

 “I think that result there has cost a United manager his job. I don’t see how he stays, I don’t.”

“If you were at the top at Manchester United, what is it about the situation watching this team, the manager and his personality that would be making you think he’s taking us forward next season?”

Even the team was disappointed with their performance. The Red Devils fought hard for a total of 120 minutes of football and didn’t even celebrate when they finally pulled through as the victors.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe was also watching the game from the stands, we can’t imagine that he’d be too impressed with the outcome either. The repercussions could be heavy.

Ratcliffe wants Manchester United to compete on all fronts. However, his Red Devils couldn’t even hang with Coventry City for 90 minutes without giving up a three-goal lead.
