Pressure mounts on Ten Hag as Manchester United battle for Champions League survival

Manchester United’s future in this season’s Champions League hangs by a thread as Bayern Munich’s visit to Old Trafford approaches. An early exit in Europe will put more scrutiny on manager Erik ten Hag. Though the Dutchman argued that United’s season has not reached a crisis mode, it did not hold as the team’s recent 3-0 defeat at home against Bournemouth added to their struggles. They sit at sixth place in the Premier League after seven defeats in their opening 16 games. The team needs a victory against the German champions on Tuesday to have any chance of progress to the last 16. However, their current points return from five matches is not promising. United will need to do better both domestically and in the Champions League if they wish to improve their position. Their problems in Europe contrast with their troubles in scoring goals in the Premier League, making their situation seem even more dire. The pressure is mounting on Ten Hag, and he acknowledges the inconsistency in United’s performances.

United’s forward Marcus Rashford has not performed well in the Premier League, and his struggles have contributed to the team’s overall performance. Furthermore, costly flops and other underperforming players have seen United’s fortunes decline in the decade following Alex Ferguson’s departure as manager. Looking ahead, United’s captain Bruno Fernandes said his side must do their job and hope for help in Denmark. Bayern Munich has a point to prove after their recent defeat. This pivotal match will be a test for United. They need to secure a victory and rely on results in other games to progress. However, with inconsistency plaguing their squad, it will be a challenge for them to rise up.
