Man Utd bosses told Erik ten Hag could deserve sacking over team selection

The Glazers have been told to take drastic action if Anthony Martial starts over Rasmus Hojlund again – by sacking Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag.

The remarkable call for change comes from former United defender Paul Parker, who believes that if Hojlund is not given the opportunity to start after the international break, it would be justified for the club's owners to get rid of under-fire Ten Hag.

Denmark international Hojlund joined United from Atalanta for a hefty fee of £72 million this summer. Having arrived with a back injury, he made his debut as a late substitute in the recent defeat to Arsenal.

Parker says that Hojlund made a significant impact when he came on the pitch and must be given the chance to start ahead of Martial. “If he doesn’t start against Brighton, then all fans will want Erik ten Hag fired, and it would almost be justified,” Parker told Spilxperten (via the Express). “It wouldn’t make any sense if he started on the bench.

“Martial shouldn’t even be on the bench. There must be a youth player who is better who can sit on the bench, and Hojlund can be the first striker.

"All Manchester United fans are fed up with seeing a player with a lousy attitude, who always sulks and complains, and it’s a blessing that Man Utd finally has an attacker who plays with enthusiasm. I actually don’t agree that you can’t already judge Rasmus Hojlund based on the minutes he had against Arsenal.

Should Anthony Martial have been sold by Man Utd in the summer? Let us know in the comments section below.

"You certainly can because he made a huge difference when he was substituted in. It was the best thing that could happen to him, that he had to replace Martial because he knew he couldn’t do worse than him.

"When he came on the pitch, he used his physique and pushed Gabriel, almost sending him flying out of Emirates. Martial has never done that. He just lies down on the ground and cries.

“He ran deep with his tremendous speed, something Martial has never done either. Martial is like a greyhound because a greyhound never runs past the hare, and that’s how Martial is.”

United's underwhelming start to the season has them in 11th place in the Premier League,, having only collected six points from their first four matches. With expectations high at Old Trafford, there is a growing demand for changes in the starting lineup.
