ERIK TEN HAG has the same Premier League loss ratio as Ralf Rangnick.
The under-fire Manchester United boss saw his side slump to a dismal 3-2 home defeat to Galatasaray last night.
Galatasaray's win was their first on English soil in their entire 117-year history.
They had gone into the match without any Champions League group stage triumph since 2018, and none away from home since the 2012-13 season.
Man United now face an uphill battle to make it through to the knockout stage, having also lost their opener 4-3 to Bayern Munich.
While they have struggled in Europe, things have hardly been much better for the Red Devils in the Premier League.
