Roy Keane predicts Ten Hag sacking ‘in next few months’ after using ‘dreaded’ word

Manchester United legend Roy Keane has expressed his belief that current manager Erik ten Hag may face the possibility of being sacked “in the next few months” after using what he described as the “dreaded” word last night.

The Red Devils have faced challenges in terms of form this season, entering the FA Cup clash against Wigan on the back of just one win in their last six matches across all competitions. Despite this, they managed to secure a 2-0 victory over Wigan in the FA Cup fourth round, with goals from Diogo Dalot and a penalty from Bruno Fernandes.

However, Keane, who was working as a pundit for ITV during the game, criticized Rasmus Hojlund for missing several opportunities against Wigan. Additionally, he pointed out four significant issues for United, emphasizing to new investor Sir Jim Ratcliffe that the situation “can’t get any worse.”

After expressing his dissatisfaction with Manchester United’s recent performance, 52-year-old Roy Keane was asked if he could see the DNA that Erik ten Hag was attempting to establish. His response was blunt.

“No, not really. I think that’s the problem with United, you know what you’re going to get when you turn up.

“The manager there mentions the ‘project’ – it probably means he’ll be gone in the next few months.

“This dreaded word ‘project’. No, I didn’t see it tonight with United and I’ve not seen it for the last few months. But, again, they’re in the next round and it’s an easy draw the next time round, but you need a better level of performance. And the chances they made tonight, you always expect more.”

Earlier in the evening, Erik ten Hag had spoken to ITV about what Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s 25% purchase of the club meant for him. He shared his thoughts on the matter.

“It is an inspiration. Everyone is optimistic.

“There is a lot of work to do. We’ve had a lot of setbacks and I think in the summer we were in a good way but it is a journey, it is a project and now we have to deal with some setbacks but we will keep alive, survive it and strike back.”

And when asked about United’s performance, Ten Hag added:

“The FA Cup is all about winning, it is knockout. You want to finish the job. That is what I said in the dressing room ‘job done’.

“In the first half, I think we created five or six very good chances. I think it was very good football. We should have taken more, but if you don’t score you have to stay focused and I think we did that tonight

“You can’t always say why you’ve missed chances. There were some good attacks and good chances, but we didn’t take them, but the way we created them was OK.”

'He's had 48 hours' - Arsenal boss shares update on Bukayo Saka after furious penalty demand

Bukayo Saka expressed frustration at not being awarded a penalty after a clash with Manuel Neuer during Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-finals.

He confronted the referee at full-time and even followed him down the tunnel, a departure from Saka’s typically composed demeanor.

When questioned about Saka’s condition before the upcoming match against Aston Villa on Sunday, Mikel Arteta stated, “Yes, he looked fine this morning.”

“He’s had 48 hours to think about it and it’s done.”

Arteta chose not to address the incident after the game, but there was a general consensus that Saka’s contact with Neuer was minimal.

Saka faced criticism for his reaction, but given the high emotions of the game, such reactions were not uncommon.

Real Madrid 3-3 Man City: Valverde caps off evening of stunning goals in Champions League thriller

Manchester City and Real Madrid played out an enthralling 3-3 draw in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final, setting up an intriguing second leg at the Etihad Stadium.

City took an early lead through Bernardo Silva’s cleverly taken free-kick, but Madrid equalized twice with deflected strikes from Eduardo Camavinga and Rodrygo, which took slight touches off Ruben Dias and Manuel Akanji respectively.

Phil Foden restored City’s lead with a superb strike from outside the box, before Josko Gvardiol scored his first goal for the club with a fine right-footed shot to make it 3-2.

However, Madrid fought back once again, with Federico Valverde’s stunning volley ensuring the tie ended level.

The result leaves the quarter-final finely balanced ahead of the second leg, with City looking to replicate their 4-0 victory over Madrid in last season’s semi-finals at the Etihad Stadium.

There was a late injury concern for City as Foden hobbled off following a late tackle on his ankle, but the extent of the injury is yet to be determined.
