Confirmed by Fabrizio Romano Premier League manager has been sacked this afternoon and Graham Potter has taken his place! Sensational return to the Premier League

In the aftermath of Manchester United’s European disappointment, all eyes are now on their upcoming Premier League showdown against long-standing rivals Liverpool. The recent loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League has only worsened United’s situation, with injuries hitting key players Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw hard.


With no fallback option in the Europa League due to their bottom finish in Group A, the pressure on United has intensified. Off the pitch, anticipation grows with news of an impending investment from INEOS founder Sir Jim Ratcliffe, who plans a 25% minority takeover valued at £1.25 billion. This collaboration with the Glazer family raises questions about potential changes in the January transfer window.


Speculation swirls regarding squad reshuffling, with names like Raphael Varane, Casemiro, Donny van de Beek, Jadon Sancho, and Anthony Martial linked to possible moves. Despite the disappointment of the Champions League exit, there are no immediate plans to remove manager Erik ten Hag. The Glazers, aware of the pending INEOS deal, are unlikely to complicate matters by sacking Ten Hag at this stage, leaving his fate in Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s hands.


INEOS’s preference for Graham Potter as a manager adds another layer of uncertainty, with previous interest noted before Francesco Farioli’s appointment at Nice. While there’s talk of Potter’s suitability, it’s unclear if INEOS sees him as a viable option for the Old Trafford managerial role if Ten Hag departs.


Amidst these ownership and managerial dynamics, United faces a pivotal moment, both on and off the pitch. The clash with Liverpool not only tests their on-field abilities but also highlights the club’s ongoing transformation and strategic decisions.
