Roberto De Zerbi has been considered as a possible alternative for Erik ten Hag as Manchester United head coach. Sir Jim Ratcliffe, who owns a 27.7% stake in United Football Club, is impressed by De Zerbi's possession-based method of play and his achievement of preparing Brighton for European football for the first time.

It is known that United has reached out to De Zerbi about succeeding Ten Hag, who, according to the Guardian, is about to be fired. De Zerbi departed Brighton with mutual agreement at the conclusion of the season. 

Meanwhile, legendary United boss Sir Alex Ferguson wanted his former club to hire 52-year-old Argentine Mauricio Pochettino. The manager has extensive experience in England, having worked with Southampton, Tottenham, and, most recently, with Chelsea.

Although his stint at Stamford Bridge failed to unfold as planned, he remains widely respected in the realm of football coaching. His work at Tottenham cannot be overlooked, as he led the team to the UEFA Champions League final and nurtured the club's youthful players into world-class players.

Erik Ten Hag clueless about his future with Manchester United

Manchester United are now deciding on the future of Erik ten Hag, the manager at the club. The club authorities have yet to conclude their end-of-season review, and Ten Hag's job is on the line. The Manchester United manager will struggle to save his job after placing ninth in the English Premier League, the club's lowest ever finish. 

After winning a title in each of his seasons at his current club, the Dutch manager maintains the support of some fans, who believe he should be given more time to nurture his players and maintain the development he is making. However, the majority believe that there is a demand for change at the club, and that new ideas can help players reach their full potential. The course of time will determine if Sir Alex Ferguson's demand for Pochettino to become Manchester United's manager is granted, or if the United board prefers De Zerbi.
