Erik ten Hag reportedly 'furious' with Man United for 'hanging him out to dry'
Ten Hag is reportedly frustrated with the club's efforts in the transfer market.
Erik ten Hag is said to be 'furious' with Manchester United's failures in the transfer market, and feels that he 'has been hung out to dry', according to reports.
The Red Devils were humiliated on Saturday, losing 4-0 away to Brentford. The result leaves United bottom of the Premier League table and means that the Dutch coach has made the worst start of any Man United manager in over 100 years.
Ten Hag is the first Red Devils coach to lose his first two matches since John Chapman in 1921.
Ten Hag reportedly 'furious' with situation at Man United.
Following Saturday's defeat, reports have emerged suggesting that United's new manager is already feeling the heat at Old Trafford.
Ten Hag's agents are said to be 'furious' and feel that Man United have badly let down their new manager in the transfer market, according to The Mirror.
They reportedly feel that Ten Hag has been 'hung out to dry' during United's haphazard transfer window, which has included a prolonged chase for Frenkie de Jong and Cristiano Ronaldo wanting to leave.
The Dutch coach is said to be unhappy with how Man United have conducted their transfer business this summer.
The club reportedly promised Ten Hag that they would bring in at least five new players this summer. John Murtough, United's 'football director', has only managed to sign three new players, however.
Man United have also struggled to land their top targets, or move on unwanted players. Andreas Pereira, who was sold to Fulham for £8.55m, is the only player United have sold this summer, with the other departures being either free transfers or loans moves.
