Erik ten Hag’s position as Man United manager is currently not under threat, and he retains the full backing of the club’s hierarchy, according to reports.
The Dutch boss will be awarded time to turn United’s fortunes around amid a disastrous start to his second season at the helm.
United have endured their worst start to a campaign in recent memory, tasting defeat in six of their 10 matches.
Ten Hag watched his side produce a sequence of catastrophic errors to undo Rasmus Hojlund’s impressive brace that fired the hosts ahead twice at Old Trafford.
It left United with no points from their opening two Group A games,
Having beaten 4-3 at Bayern Munich in the European campaign’s curtain-raiser.
