“I habe told him what to do. If he does it and win the derby, he will secure his job, if not he will be sacked sacked after today’s match”-Roy Keane makes derby prediction and gives verdict on Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United future as the Derby result will determine his future at the club.

Speculation surrounding Erik ten Hag’s future as Manchester United manager has been persistent throughout this season, with rumors resurfacing particularly after the team’s recent 2-1 defeat to Fulham at Old Trafford, which halted a four-game winning streak in the Premier League.

The official confirmation of Sir Jim Ratcliffe and INEOS Group as co-owners of United, following their 25 percent takeover approved last month, has added another layer to the discussion. With United’s primary opportunity for silverware this season lying in the FA Cup, opinions on Ten Hag’s tenure have been sought, with former United player Roy Keane providing his perspective.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, Keane remarked, “It’s a significant period ahead for the manager for various reasons. City are pushing for titles, while Ten Hag aims to garner confidence from the new ownership. The upcoming months will be telling in terms of results.”

Acknowledging the team’s inconsistency, Keane noted their resilience in securing results, including their recent victory over Nottingham Forest in the cup. He emphasized the importance of maintaining high standards, especially in the face of formidable opponents like City.

“There’s immense pressure on the manager, and the next few months will be critical,” Keane stressed. “A win today and potential support from the new ownership could bolster morale. I’m certain the new ownership will assess the situation in the summer, making it a pivotal period for the manager.”
