“The players are getting tired of him. His tactics are rubbish. We need a better coach. Left the middle of the pitch open. Which coach does that?” – BREAKING NEWS as an Inside Interviewer Mistakenly reveals Man United star response as he questions Erik ten Hag’s ‘naive’ approach after Fulham defeat.

Following Manchester United’s defeat against Fulham at Old Trafford, defender Harry Maguire appeared to criticize Erik ten Hag’s approach, suggesting it was naive.

Despite Maguire scoring a late equalizer, Fulham secured a 97th-minute winner through Alex Iwobi, dealing a blow to Ten Hag’s top-four aspirations.

United’s performance was lackluster, particularly in defense, as they struggled to contain Fulham’s attacks and gifted them numerous opportunities.

Maguire’s goal offered hope of securing three points, but Ten Hag’s substitution, replacing Kobbie Mainoo with Amad Diallo, left the team vulnerable centrally, according to the English defender. He expressed concern over the team’s naivety in pushing too many players forward, leaving the midfield exposed and susceptible to Fulham’s clinical counter-attacks.

Maguire stated, “We went on and pushed all the pressure, but in the end, we’ve probably just thrown too many bodies forward and been a bit naive. We left the middle of the pitch open, and they punished us with a clinical counter-attack.”

The performance also raised questions about United’s midfield, despite the individual brilliance of players like Mainoo and the high regard for Casemiro. The midfield has often been criticized for being easily overrun by opponents.

With United now eight points adrift of fourth-placed Aston Villa, who secured a victory against Nottingham Forest, their hopes of achieving a top-four finish are dwindling.
