Erik ten Hag sent ‘painful’ Manchester United reality check ahead of appointment


Manchester United will not be competing for major honours again for at least another two to three seasons, according to former Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott. The pundit has sent a reality check to Erik ten Hag ahead of his potential appointment as the next United manager.

The Red Devils are said to have decided upon Ten Hag as their next boss. The Dutchman is set to replace interim boss Ralf Rangnick at the end of the season, according to ESPN.

United have not won the Premier League since 2013 and look outsiders to finish in the Champions League qualification places this season. Lescott believes Ten Hag can be the man to bring glory back to Old Trafford.

However, he says that will not be the case for a couple of seasons at least. Lescott says United will have to go through more pain in order to be back to where they want to be.
