MANCHESTER UNITED have a WORSE record under Erik ten Hag than under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, it turns out.
In the Premier League alone, United have lost nine times this season.
And that’s more than they’ve managed in Solskjaer’s two full seasons.
In the club legend’s inaugural season, 2019/20, United lost eight league games before only six the following season, with P3 and P2 finishes respectively.
After a dismal start to the 2021/22 season, which saw United lose five in 12 games under his leadership, the Norwegian’s time as manager came to an end.
Additionally, United were unable to pick up silverware during Solskjaer’s reign Ten witch has already managed to win the Carabao Cup and could end the season with two trophies with the FA Cup final still to come.
But when some United fans saw those numbers, they seemed to imply they wanted the ‘baby-faced assassin’ back in the Old Trafford dugout.
One fan wrote: “Ten Hag is a worse Solskjaer with no hair.”
A second remarked: “Ole Gunnar Solskjaer I owe you an apology. you were never that bad I am officially Ten Hag from now on.”
A third joked: “Ten Hag starts giving me Solskjaer flashbacks.”

“Ten Hag is not up to it, Solskjaer has a better record,” commented a fourth.
A fifth said: “The only difference between Ole Gunnar Solskjær and Erik Ten Hag is Casemiro. There’s nothing you can tell me [otherwise].”
A sixth added: “Erik Ten Hag is a cheater, the Carabao Cup is the only difference between him and Ole Gunnar Solskjær.”
While another – apparently a Cristiano Ronaldo fan – explained: “Ten Hag ended CR7’s career along with his own. Does Ten Hag do a better job than Solskjaer?”
It should also be noted that Solskjaer has had a 51.31 per cent win rate over the two seasons he has been in charge, in contrast to Ten Hag who has had a 55 per cent win rate so far this season.
Following last season’s fiasco, it was a transitional season for United as Ten Hag attempted to restore the club’s core principles.
But the ones from SunSport Dave Kidd believes this shows the mess the club is in since Sir Alex Ferguson left in 2013.
