“Ole Gunnar Ten Hag” – Former Chelsea Star Rips Man United Boss

Man United boss Erik Ten Hag

Former Chelsea star Jason Cundy has ripped Man United boss Erik Ten Hag, saying the Red Devils look like the same side they were a year ago under ex-coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Man United limped to a 1-0 victory on Thursday in the UEFA Europa League over Cyprian side Omonoia FC, courtesy of a last-gasp winner from Scott McTominay.

In the reverse fixture last Thursday, the Red Devils came from a goal behind to win 3-2 in Nicosia, making hard work of the two ties against much poorer opposition despite fielding a strong team.

In the Premier League, new manager Erik Ten Hag has had a turbulent start to life in Manchester, to say the least. Although United went on a four-game winning run, including victories over Arsenal and Liverpool, they’ve also experienced severe lows, namely losing 4-0 to Brentford and getting thumped by rivals Man City last weekend.

Following United’s victory on Thursday, Jason Cundy was heard ripping into Erik Ten Hag and Man United, saying he sees no difference in the team since Ole’s departure last year.

“Do you know what? It looks like Ole is on the bench still. I look at this United team and in all honestly, I’ve seen no change,” said Cundy on talkSPORT.

“Tell me now that there’s a difference with the United you saw this time last year under Ole and what you’re seeing now. They say he’s picking up results, right? Ole picked up results.

“The only difference is the guy on the bench has a beard. You know what I saw on the bench? Ole Gunnar Ten Hag.”

The former Chelsea player then went on to add: “As we all know in football, the result is obviously the most important thing, of course it is and that will never change, but there are always games and moments in a team’s season where you want to see a better performance and a better result.

“United dominated the game but they could have dropped points and those dropped points could have been fatal.

“They can still top the group, they go to Real Sociedad and still have to play there, but this a group that Manchester United should be running away with and they’re not.

“The problems at United are still there. I thought the performance against Everton at the weekend was pretty poor, I thought that both sides were bang average. Ronaldo got the chance and finished it off, but that could have been a draw.”

Man United, who currently sit in 5th spot in the PL, host Newcastle United on the weekend as Erik Ten Hag looks for a fourth win on the bounce.
