Manchester United’s boss Erik Ten Hag surprised the media and the fans in the last few hours by making a controversial decision on one of the superstars in United’s dressing-room, leaving the player, valued at around £86 million, having a secondary role in the squad and starting the games from the bench after having been a regular player for the Dutchman's team.

Not to Barça, ex Man United Mason Greenwood to reject the Culers for this reason

This Ten Hag’s decision, although, wouldn’t be that sudden and according to the Dutchman himself would respond to the constant poor performances delivered by the player in question, who has shown himself totally unable to give his best level at United.

For this reason, Ten Hag would have put several players ahead of this United’s star, who should prove to have the elite football level expected from him to turn his current situation at the club.

In this sense, Jim Ratcliffe and INEOS’ board would be monitoring the player’s situation meticulously during the next few months, as the player could be sold as a part of the new ownership’s plans to raise money in the summer transfer market window to reinvest in massive elite players for the team’s future.

Total disaster, this Man United’s stat is really killing the Ten Hag’s ambitions this season

Who’s the player disappointing Ten Hag?

The player forgotten by Ten Hag would be none other than the 24-year-old Brazilian striker Antony dos Santos, who has made only a goal and given an assist in his 29 appearances with United in the season, which is really little for a player personally requested by Ten Hag that would have disappointed to the manager with his poor performances after joining the Red Devils for £86 million from Ajax in 2022.
