EPL: Darren Bent speaks on Unai Emery taking Manchester United job


Former Tottenham Hotspur attacker Darren Bent has insisted that Manchester United would have ‘no chance’ of bringing in Aston Villa manager Unai Emery to replace Erik ten Hag as the club’s new manager.

Ten Hag is under significant pressure at Man United following a slow start to the 2023-2024 campaign.

His team currently sit in the eighth position on the Premier League table after their recent derby defeat to Manchester City.

Aston Villa, meanwhile, are flying under Emery and are fifth in the Premier League, just four points behind leaders Tottenham Hotspur.

When asked if Emery could be tempted to swap Aston Villa for United, Bent told talkSPORT: “He wouldn’t leave Aston Villa now. He wouldn’t.


“Not with that mess that’s going on [at Man United]. He is not leaving. No chance. At the minute, he’s at a stable football club who are going in the right direction.

“I don’t know what’s going on at Man Utd. Listen, Man United are a bigger club, I have no doubts about that, but right now Aston Villa are in a more stable position and look better than Man United.”

He added, “Do you think Eddie Howe would leave Newcastle to go to Man Utd? Absolutely not.”
