<p>Ratcliffe, who just bought a 25% stake in the team from the Glazer family, is now in charge of United’s football operations.</p>
<p>The British entrepreneur is reportedly considering replacing Ten Hag at Old Trafford with former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane after the Dutchman’s two-season tenure.</p>
<p>Ten Hag, the former Ajax manager, has had difficulty building on his early success after United’s six-year trophy drought was ended by winning the League Cup the previous season.</p>
<p>A 2-1 loss to Fulham at home on Saturday dealt a further blow to United’s slim chances of making it into the Champions League with a top four Premier League finish the following season.</p>
<p>Ten Hag will come under further pressure if United, who have one more opportunity to win a trophy this season, lose to Nottingham Forest on Wednesday in the FA Cup fifth round.</p>
<p>Ten Hag, meanwhile, is emphatic that he is not interested in hearing Ratcliffe offer any endorsements.</p>
<p>“I don’t care; I’m here and I have a three-season deal. He told reporters on Tuesday, “I don’t care what’s going around me; I’m just focused on the process.”</p>
<p>“I have had several conversations with Jim Ratcliffe, but I particularly speak with Sir Dave Brailsford, so I am familiar with the subject at hand. They seem to believe in me, and I have strong beliefs.</p>
<p>“I’m just thinking about the team, and I have to come up with ways to help them work as efficiently as possible. It’s crucial to keep your attention on this and not let outside sounds divert you.</p>
<p>“We are discussing the future, a future that we share together.”</p>
