Marco van Basten sends warning to ten Hag over Man Utd job after Liverpool loss

Dutch legend Marco van Basten has questioned whether Erik ten Hag should take the Manchester United job after witnessing their woeful performance against Liverpool.

United were pummelled 4-0 at Anfield on Tuesday night, handing their arch-rivals a significant boost in their Premier League title charge and denting their own top four hopes in the process.

United have conceded nine goals without reply to Jurgen Klopp’s side this season with the gulf between the two clubs larger than ever as United head towards another big summer of change.

Ajax boss ten Hag has agreed a deal to replace Ralf Rangnick and become the club’s new permanent manager this summer.

But van Basten has warned his countryman he has a colossal job on his hands, tearing into United for ‘not thinking about situations’ and naming skipper Harry Maguire as one of the worst offenders.  

‘The difference between Liverpool and Manchester United at the moment is huge, they walked around like beaten people,’ van Basten told Ziggo Sport.

‘They are one of the biggest clubs in England but not one of them showed anything.

‘Maguire passes the ball in the same way and thinks, ‘I don’t know, are you doing it?’

‘They are not thinking about solutions, it’s unbelievable.’

While ten Hag has verbally agreed to join United, van Basten questioned whether the manager will now have doubts over the job at hand.

‘You have to ask yourself whether Manchester United have doubts about Ten Hag or whether Ten Hag has doubts about Manchester United.

‘This was really sad to see, at such a big club.’
