Erik ten Hag record compared to five Manchester United managers after Sir Alex Ferguson

Everything was looking rosy for the Dutchman following his first 12 months at the helm, certainly on the pitch as United returned to the Champions League with a third-place finish in the Premier League and also ended a six-year trophy hoodoo. However, performances and results this campaign have been a far cry since the restart.

United were dumped out of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night by Newcastle, their opponents in the final last season, for an eighth defeat in all competitions. It was the team&aposs second 3-0 reverse on the bounce at Old Trafford and Manchester Evening News understands some players are now starting to doubt Ten Hag.

Despite that and the alarming results that have come this season, Ten Hag remains the only United manager since the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013 to maintain a better than 60 per cent win ratio. Here, we take a look at how his overall record compares to five predecessors.
