Man Utd Double winner Parker: Ten Hag shouldn't be under pressure

Former Manchester United defender Paul Parker has advice for an incoming investor.

Parker has urged INEOS chief Sir Jim Ratcliffe, who is set to buy 25 percent of United, to stick with manager Erik ten Hag.

The ex-center back does not believe that firing Ten Hag to bring in another head coach is the correct approach.

Speaking to mybettingsites.co.uk, he said:"I don't see how or why Erik ten Hag's position should be threatened.

“If you go off the numbers, his numbers are very good. Look at what they achieved last season.

“The biggest problem for United is the performances are rotten. They're rotten.

“Even when they've won games it's been rotten. It's because of injuries, key players missing and players not pulling their weight and having to rely on individuals to get them out of trouble.

“The manager needs to be backed by Ratcliffe and co coming in. Even if they've got agents in their ear because they want their man in the job."
