After Manchester City embarrassed United with an utterly dominant performance in Saturday’s derby, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s position as United boss again came under intense scrutiny.
The Ajax coach is one of the favourites to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at United but according to Alex Brotherton writing for Manchester Evening News, he’d be a fool to go when he could be City boss one day.
Nonetheless, it appears that Solskjaer’s job is safe for the time being, as Ten Hag seems set to stay at the club with whom he has won two Eredivisie league titles.
Since taking charge of an Ajax team that had not won the Eredivisie in three years and had underperformed in Europe for years, he has brought Cruyffian football back to its spiritual home.
With two Eredivisie titles already on his resume and a likely third at the end of the season, in addition to big expectations in the Champions League, Ten Hag still has a lot left to achieve in his current managerial position.
It is believed that Guardiola will indeed leave the Etihad when his contract expires in the summer of 2023, meaning that the club will already be hunting down the perfect replacement for City’s most successful ever manager.
In reaction to the report shared on Twitter by City Scoop, many Man City fans have expressed their thoughts and opinions.
