Manchester United's Future Hangs on Incoming CEO's Jim Ratcliffe Decision Regarding Erik ten Hag's Fate

Manchester United's structural overhaul under new shareholders INEOS, led by Sir Jim Ratcliffe, has put Erik ten Hag's future at the club in question. However, it's reported that incoming CEO Omar Berrada will be the key figure to decide the manager's fate.

With Ratcliffe's purchase of a 28% stake in the club and Berrada's impending arrival from Manchester City, the decision-making power regarding Ten Hag's future has shifted. Ratcliffe, reluctant to make such a significant decision himself, has delegated this responsibility to Berrada, effectively making him the 'kingmaker' in this scenario.

Berrada, who has spent over a decade at City, will officially join United at the start of the 2024/25 season after a period of gardening leave. His role will include determining the direction of the club, including the managerial position.

Despite recent positive results, including a thrilling FA Cup win against Liverpool, Ten Hag's position remains uncertain. United's struggles to secure Champions League qualification add further pressure to the situation. The upcoming match against Brentford will be another test for Ten Hag, with rumors linking Thomas Frank to the United managerial role.

As the Ratcliffe era begins at Manchester United, the focus now shifts to Berrada's impending decision and its implications for the club's future direction.
