United have collected three points from their opening two matches, but there are already concerning warning signs for some fans.

Now, Durham has slammed Ten Hag for what he believes are six failures on the Dutchman’s part.Erik ten Hag called out for ‘six failures’ as Man Utd boss.

Speaking on talkSPORT, Durham blasted the United boss for his perceived failings – listing them one by one.He exclaimed: “On the face of it, Erik ten Hag looks good. The improvement is clear in Manchester United.”The season before he arrived, they finished sixth, 35 points behind Manchester City. Under Ten Hag last season, they finished third, 14 points behind City.”But here is a list of things that don’t reflect well on Erik ten Hag.

“He’s failed to improve [Jadon] Sancho. He’s failed to improve Antony. He disrespected [David] De Gea. He’s killed [Harry] Maguire’s Manchester United’s career.

“He’s created a midfield that makes Casemiro look terrible, and now he’s setting about ruining Mason Mount with that midfield.

“He seemingly has no idea how to create a midfield that can be effective in Premier League games. So is Erik ten Hag actually any good?”Since Ten Hag arrived at United, however, he has picked up 78 points from his first 40 games – a total only bettered by City boss Pep Guardiola (82) after the same number of matches.
