Erik ten Hag Avoids Comment on Manchester United’s Struggles

Manager Refuses to Discuss Potential for United’s Worst Premier League Season

Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, declined to address a question regarding the possibility of his team enduring their worst season in the Premier League era during his post-match press conference following a draw with Bournemouth.

Despite a challenging season, United managed to avoid what could have been their 13th defeat of the Premier League campaign at the Vitality Stadium. Bruno Fernandes’ two equalizers secured a 2-2 draw for United against Bournemouth.

The team’s position in the league standings has been overshadowed by Newcastle’s recent surge, with the latter overtaking United into sixth place after a commanding 4-0 victory over Tottenham earlier in the day. Comparisons have been drawn to United’s performance in the 2013-14 season under David Moyes, where they also struggled and finished seventh.

When asked about the potential for United to experience a repeat of their 2013-14 season, Ten Hag opted not to comment. “I don’t comment on that question,” he stated. “That is not important in this moment.”

United’s recent form has been under scrutiny, with only one win in their last seven league matches and a four-game winless streak, which is their longest of the campaign. Ten Hag attributed some of these struggles to the squad’s injury list.

Despite challenges, Ten Hag expressed optimism and belief in the players, particularly the younger members of the squad. However, he acknowledged the need for consistency and improvement, especially in the face of tough competition in the Premier League.
