Ten Hag’s Absence from United vs Everton Revealed: The Real Reason

Erik ten Hag will miss Manchester United’s game against Everton due to a one-match suspension for receiving a third yellow card in the ongoing Premier League season. The ban stems from his behavior in the match against Luton Town at Old Trafford last month.

After the Luton game, Ten Hag expressed his disappointment, stating, “It’s not nice but I’m sure we’ll prepare for Everton and my coaching staff will take over, they are very competent to do the job.”

Ten Hag explained that his booking came after making a remark on a referee’s decision during the Luton game. He acknowledged the need to accept decisions despite his disagreement with them.

United’s assistant coach Mitchell van der Gaag will take over Ten Hag’s role on the touchline for the upcoming league game, while Ten Hag watches from the director’s box with a communication device to speak to his staff.

Despite the yellow card drama, Manchester United secured a narrow 1-0 victory over Luton Town, with a rare goal from Victor Lindelof sealing the win.

Lindelof’s goal marked United’s second successive clean sheet and their fourth victory in five games.
