BREAKING! – Good news for fans as Sir Jim Ratcliffe performs Erik ten Hag U-turn as Major Jadon Sancho stance emerges

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is under pressure following the club’s early exit from Europe, and it seems as though Sir Jim Ratcliffe is now considering all his options

After being humbled 3-0 by Bournemouth in their own backyard last weekend, Erik ten Hag’s exited Europe with a whimper on Tuesday night at the hands of Bayern Munich.
