United are running the risk of missing out on next season’s Champions League, which would be a sickening blow to the club.
Whoever enters the Old Trafford hot seat this summer is bound to have a mammoth job on their hands to restore order in the dressing room and divert United’s path of chaos towards the right direction again.
Club legend Gary Neville fears United’s top two targets Mauricio Pochettino and Erik ten Hag would not be up to the job given the enormity of the task. “If you look at Pochettino and Ten Hag who are the two that keep getting mentioned,” he said on Sky Sports after United’s 4-1 loss.
“Pochettino we don’t even know if they can get from Paris Saint-Germain. Have they got the personality to come in to Manchester United?
“The scale of the club, the issues that exist there at this moment in time – are they able to have the personality and character and the strategic planning of how to manage up and down?
“To influence up, to take over the planning of the training ground, to redevelop the stadium, all the stuff you think a great manager would do. I’m not sure Pochettino and ten Hag have got that in them.”
