Experienced manager Neil Warnock has expressed criticism toward the high-profile players of Manchester United, stating that he wouldn’t have recruited them for Huddersfield.
Manchester United endured their fifth league defeat against Manchester City last Sunday, putting them in eighth place and 11 points behind the league leaders, Tottenham. Despite a substantial summer spending spree of £177 million on signings like Rasmus Hojlund, Mason Mount, Andre Onana, and Altay Bayindir, the team’s on-field performances have fallen short of expectations.
Erik ten Hag, United’s manager, had a promising start at Old Trafford, which included winning the Carabao Cup and securing a third-place finish. However, this season has proven to be more challenging. The team struggled at the beginning of their Champions League campaign, losing their first two matches before narrowly defeating FC Copenhagen.
Warnock, the former Huddersfield manager, is uncertain about ten Hag’s future at the club, given the underwhelming performances of several star players. He initially believed that ten Hag’s disciplinarian approach was the right fit for the team, but he has been disappointed with the Dutchman’s methods and the substantial amount of money spent on new players.
Regarding ten Hag’s tenure, Warnock expressed doubt, suggesting that the manager might not want to continue in his current role. He believes that ten Hag may be facing insurmountable challenges and that his time at Old Trafford could be limited.
