Erik ten Hag has found himself on the receiving end after Manchester United fans spotted what he did immediately after the full-time whistle of their Premier League clash against Crystal Palace.

The Red Devils' disastrous run continued on Monday night when they were dismantled 4-0 by the Eagles at Selhurst Park, with the result further denting their hopes of securing a Europa League spot for next season.

SPORTbible reports that Michael Olise, who has been linked with a transfer move to Old Trafford in the summer was the man of the moment, with the forward netting a brace to inspire Palace to a memorable win.

Jean-Phillippe Mateta and Tyrick Mitchell also scored a goal a piece to contribute to the hosts' convincing win.

Ten Hag leaves Man United fans infuriated

While the loss left United fans unhappy, what ten Hag did at the end of the match has further left the supporters questioning his suitability for the job.

The Dutchman is understood to have walked straight down the tunnel after the full-time whistle as his charges applauded the away end shortly after the match.

Ten Hag's failure to recognise fans who stuck by the team through the difficult period has seen him come under fire, with a section of them claiming it could be a sign he won't keep his job.

@AcademyScoop tweeted:

"Erik Ten Hag has walked down the tunnel while the players applaud the incredible away supporters."

@TrueUnitedFan81 retorted:

"Have some shame. Awful behaviour."

@c1ties joked:

"Gotta catch his flight from Gatwick in an hour."

@UtdEra_ noted:

"Some take responsibility for awful defeats, others are complete cowards."

@4545Deep concluded:

"Should be sacked today itself. I can't see him being the coach from now on. Certainly not in the next season."

Ten Hag responds to sack calls

In related news, Sports Brief also reported on ten Hag responding after fans called for his sacking following humiliating defeat at Crystal Palace.

The Dutchman has come under heavy scrutiny this season.
