Erik ten Hag just 2/1 to leave Man Utd before Christmas as list of likely replacements revealed | The Sun

ERIK TEN HAG is just 2/1 to leave Manchester United before CHRISTMAS.

Bookmakers Betfair slashed the odds of the Dutchman leaving his Old Trafford post after the latest horror show in the defeat to Brighton – their fourth consecutive loss to the Seagulls.


That home thumping comes after a tough time as he deals with off field and on field issues at the club.

However, speaking after the game he assured fans the club is NOT in a crisis.

He also called on the players to step up and turn their early season fortunes around.

But that loss made in three defeats in their opening five games – the first time United have started this poorly in the Premier League's history.

That's forced Betfair to act and slash the odds of Ten Hag quitting this year, while also revealing their list of most likely replacements.

And previous favourite for the job, Zinedine Zidane leads the betting as the 4/1 market leader to replace him.

Potential Man Utd replacements

Should Erik Ten Hag leave

  • Zinedine Zidane: 4/1
  • Julian Nagelsmann: 11/2
  • Roberto De Zerbi: 15/2
  • Michael Carrick: 9/1
  • Graham Potter: 10/1
  • Mauricio Pochettino: 14/1
  • Antonio Conte: 16/1
  • Brendan Rodgers: 16/1
  • Gareth Southgate: 16/1
  • Diego Simeone: 20/1

Erik ten Hag to leave Man Utd before Christmas | 2/1


He's been out of the management game since leaving Real Madrid for a second time at the end of the 20/21 campaign.

Julian Nagelsmann (11/2) is next with Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi third favourite (15/2).

Club legend Michael Carrick (9/1) and Graham Potter (10/1) are two others potentially in contention.

While Mauricio Pochettino (14/1) has been long-linked with the United hot-seat and could be looking for a way out of Chelsea after his own rotten start.

Betfair spokesperson Sam Rosbottom said: “Erik ten Hag is 2/1 to leave Man United by Christmas following his side’s 3-1 loss to Brighton. The Red Devils’ defeat is the latest of a number of casualties at the club. 

"Zinedine Zidane is the 4/1 favourite to become Ten Hag’s successor, while Julian Nagelsmann (11/2), Roberto de Zerbi (15/2) and Michael Carrick (9/1) are the outsiders to take over.”
