Manchester United could sack Erik ten Hag in the coming weeks, following a crushing Champions League defeat away at Copenhagen.
The Red Devils lie bottom of their Champions League group, needing a minor miracle to advance to the next round of the competition, following a woeful 4-3 collapse in Denmark. Marcus Rashford was sent off in a seesawing epic in which Copenhagen snatched all three points courtesy of 17-year-old Roony Bardghji in the dying embers of the match.
With Manchester United six points off the top four in the Premier League too, pressure is mounting on Ten Hag, with rumours suggesting that the Glazers could be set to axe the Dutchman imminently.

The Sun, meanwhile, believes that legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson will advise Ratcliffe to stick with Ten Hag for now.
“Erik has Sir Alex’s unwavering support. He’s been hugely supportive of Erik since he arrived at the club,” the report states.
“He’s impressed at the job he is doing and, in particular, the way he has taken on big decisions.
“If consulted, that’s a position he would be prepared to make clear to any new investors who come into the football club.”
