Scott McTominay has confirmed the support of Manchester United players for Erik ten Hag as pressure on the Red Devils boss continues to increase. The team’s 3-0 loss to Bournemouth on Saturday is evidence of the club’s inconsistent form, despite a recent 2-1 victory over Chelsea. Reports speculated that Ten Hag had lost the trust of 50% of the Manchester United dressing room, but McTominay has denied any toxicity behind closed doors.
As an unlikely hero for Manchester United, McTominay has been their top scorer with six goals in 17 games across competitions. However, their upcoming UEFA Champions League match against Bayern Munich on December 12 will be a critical test for Ten Hag’s side, as they need a victory and for Galatasaray and FC Copenhagen to draw in order to remain in the competition.
For Ten Hag, motivating his players is crucial as they face the daunting task of beating Bayern, who have not lost a group stage game in the Champions League in six years and 39 matches. Despite both teams coming off disappointing losses in their respective leagues, Ten Hag is determined to work with his team to prepare for a potential victory.
The future of Erik ten Hag at Manchester United may hinge on the team’s performance in the Champions League, with pressure mounting and questions arising about the team’s trust in their manager.
