'I'm making enquiries NOW' - Man United fans all want 44-yr-old to replace Ten Hag as manager

Man United fans want to see Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi become manager if Erik ten Hag is sacked by the Red Devils.

Ten Hag finds himself under huge pressure after successive 3-0 defeats to Manchester City and Newcastle United.

The Red Devils crashed out of the League Cup on Wednesday night after Eddie Howe’s side avenged their cup final defeat from last season.

United have slumped down to eighth in the Premier League table and are facing elimination from the Champions League after winning only one of their opening three group-stage games.

In contrast, De Zerbi led Brighton to a sixth-placed league finish last season, earning the club qualification to the Europa League.

They currently sit seventh in the league table – two points ahead of Man United – and beat Ten Hag’s former side Ajax in the Europa League last week.

As time seemingly runs out for Ten Hag at Old Trafford, United fans took to social media to decide that De Zerbi is the man to turn the club’s fortunes around.

This fan urged the United board to ‘pull the trigger’ and take a risk on appointing De Zerbi.

Would De Zerbi need time to turn things around at Old Trafford? This fan doesn’t seem to think so.

This supporter believes the Italian boss would take United to ‘the next level’ and close the gap to rivals Man City.

De Zerbi has already been linked with both the Chelsea and Man City job after his success at Brighton, and these United fans are eager to pip their rivals to his signature.

This fan believes De Zerbi is the answer to United’s problems if Sir Jim Ratcliffe and INEOS provide him with ‘proper structure’.
