With Manchester United winning the FA Cup over the weekend, Erik Tag Han might be retained for the next season, which starts in August. Reports have recently revealed that he might be replaced because of the Red Devils' poor performance. Jim Ratcliffe, Manchester United's co-owner, and his comrades have been dissatisfied with the club's performance this season. Erik has been under pressure because the Red Devils lost 19 games this season and finished in eighth place.

Struggling With Injuries

Erik has cited his team's eighth-place performance as partly due to player injuries. Manchester United has not been able to play at its best due to a slew of injuries. The club experienced 45 individual incidents of injury during the 2023–24 season, which may have contributed to their weak play. Erik once had eleven players miss games during the week. Erik had three players out due to injuries during Saturday's final against Manchester City.

Alejandro Garnacho and Kobbie Mainoo led United to a 2-1 victory over Manchester City at Webley Stadium on Saturday, ending a protracted trophy chase. When asked about his future at Manchester United during a BBC press conference, he claimed he was concentrating on improving the team." I don't know. The only thing I'm doing is preparing my team, developing my team. This is a project for me. When I came in, I can say it was a mess. Now we are better. We are not where we want to be" he told BBC One. 

What Next For The Red Devils

Roberto De Zerbi, Mauricio Pochettino, and Thomas Tuchel are rumored to take Erik's place. We will have to wait and see if Erik Tag Han will be sacked or retained for the 23-2024 season, which starts in August. If he remains, he will also be in charge of the team, as they participate in the Europa League next season.
