Erik ten Hag faces backlash and criticism for his remarks following a disappointing loss against Crystal Palace.

Manchester United faced a humiliating defeat against Crystal Palace in a match that left fans reeling and Erik ten Hag under fire for his post-game comments. The Red Devils’ visit to Selhurst Park was supposed to be a step towards catching up with their competitors in the Premier League, but it turned into a nightmare as Palace dominated the game.

Michael Olise’s brace, along with goals from Jean-Philippe Mateta and Tyrick Mitchell, secured a convincing 4-0 win for Oliver Glasner’s team. The aftermath of this defeat saw Ten Hag facing intense criticism from supporters, especially for his remarks regarding the team’s recent performances.

Ten Hag’s comment that “This is the fourth defeat in 2024 and so far, you have seen a team that is following the script” drew sharp backlash. Fans accused him of being out of touch with reality, especially when he tried to find positives in the midst of such a dismal result.

Social media platforms exploded with reactions, with one fan sarcastically pointing out that starting the season in August 2023 should not excuse the team’s poor performance in 2024. Others mocked his ability to always find something positive even in defeat, labeling him as “deluded” and “ridiculous.”

The criticism extended to doubts about his ability to lead United to success, especially with upcoming matches like the one against Arsenal looming. Some fans called for his dismissal, citing his inability to field a competitive lineup even amid injury concerns.

When questioned about his suitability to improve United, Ten Hag remained defiant, expressing confidence in his capabilities and emphasizing the need for the right players to be available. Despite the setback, he vowed to continue fighting and preparing the team for future challenges. However, his comments did little to appease the disgruntled fans who demanded accountability and tangible improvements on the field.
