Man Utd: Robbie Savage makes Erik ten Hag prediction as club make 'no improvement' from last season

Former Premier League star Robbie Savage believes Manchester United's season will go down as 'disappointing' no matter whether they win the FA Cup or not.

With Manchester United out of the top four race and struggling for consistency in the Premier League, Savage suggested that even beating rivals Manchester City wouldn’t make their season a success.

“Even if United win the FA Cup, I don’t think this season could be considered a successful one for them,” said Savage.

“Their form in the Premier League and the number of games they’ve lost has shown no improvement from last season. The only caveat is that there is now a structure in place at the club and Erik ten Hag could thrive under it if he wins the FA Cup and stays on as manager.

“Their recruitment has been poor and the question of who was actually behind bringing some of those signings in is still there. With the structure in place and if they win the FA Cup then I personally think that they’ll give Erik ten Hag another season.

"They still have to actually beat Manchester City which won’t be easy and they didn’t look anywhere close to beating them last season. Even if they do win and finish sixth in the league, I still think this goes down as a disappointing season.”

Looking ahead to if Manchester United do decide to replace Ten Hag, Savage suggested that the job would be appealing due to the new structure in place at the club.

“The Manchester United job is now such an appealing one because of the new structure that they’ve got in place with Jason Wilcox and Sir Jim Ratcliffe,” he continued.

“If they decide to change manager then there’s no doubt it’ll be an appealing proposition for other managers.

"They’ll be looking at it and seeing a great opportunity at one of the biggest clubs in the world. If anything, the United job has never been as appealing as it will be this summer should they decide to change the manager.”

Manchester United return to Premier League action on Wednesday night when they take on Sheffield United at Old Trafford.
