Man Utd players split on Ten Hag appointment; Poch still retains support

Manchester United players are split on the prospect of Erik ten Hag arriving as new manager.

The Manchester Evening News says while some players are excited about the possibility of being coached by Ajax's Ten Hag, others in the dressing room view him as an "underwhelming" replacement to interim boss Ralf Rangnick.

A number of players at the club would still like to see Mauricio Pochettino get the role.

This is despite PSG's recent collapse in the Champions League which saw them get get knocked out of the Round of 16 by Real Madrid.

Former players including Gary Neville and Nicky Butt have also given their backing to Pochettino getting the role, despite the former admitting that Ten Hag is the heavy favourite.

Despite some feeling that Pochettino should get the job, the club's hierarchy is edging closer towards Ten Hag to become the club's second Dutch permanent manager following Louis van Gaal.
