Manchester United Make Contact With Ipswich Manager Amidst Growing Speculation Over Ten Hag’s Future

Coach Kieran McKenna

Manchester United have reportedly reached out to Kieran McKenna, the current Ipswich Town boss, as speculation mounts over Erik ten Hag’s future at Old Trafford. McKenna has had a successful stint with Ipswich Town, leading them to consecutive promotions after finishing second in both League One and the Championship. He left his coaching role at United to take up his first managerial position at Portman Road.

According to Foot Mercato, United’s new INEOS hierarchy have been in touch with McKenna’s representatives, exploring the possibility of a return to Old Trafford. The Guardian also reports that several Premier League clubs are interested in securing his services, including his former team. As uncertainty continues to surround Ten Hag’s future, McKenna is among several names linked with the top job at Old Trafford. England manager Gareth Southgate is also rumoured to be in the running.

Ten Hag is set to learn his fate at the end of the season. Despite the potential for FA Cup glory, there’s also the risk of missing out on European football for the first time since 2014, reports the Mirror. McKenna, who previously worked under Jose Mourinho, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ralf Rangnick, enjoyed his time in the North West. His departure from United was driven by his ambition to carve out his own managerial career.
