Erik ten Hag reacts to rumors of his potential sacking if he loses the FA Cup to their City rivals.

The Red Devils shocked the world by defeating Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City 2-1 at Wembley Stadium, with goals from Mainoo and Garnacho, while Doku scored for City.

The victory gave Ten Hag his second piece of silverware in as many seasons at Old Trafford.

The Dutchman said he is still uncertain about whether he will remain manager next season but insisted he will continue to win trophies, whether at United or elsewhere.

Ten Hag said:

“Two trophies in two years is not bad, three finals in two years is not bad.”

“If they don’t want me, then I go somewhere else to win trophies because that is what I do.”

Ten Hag, however, insisted he has the support of Ratcliffe and his Ineos team, led by director of sport Sir Dave Brailsford.

“That is what they always tell me.”

“How many times do I have to tell you? Every time it is the same question. Do I have to repeat myself 10, 15, 20 times?

“They don’t have to tell me every week if they tell me so often. I heard it many times.”

Ten Hag was also asked whether he felt undermined by United holding informal talks with representatives of potential replacements before issuing a strong defence of his reign.

“I don’t know if they have done this, I can’t answer this question.”

“I don’t know. Maybe you have sources. I don’t have them.

“I am in a project and we are exactly where we want to be, we are constructing a team for the future.

When I took over we were in a mess. The team is developing, the team is winning and the team plays to an identity,

but you need the players to be available and a strong squad, especially when you play in England and Europe.

“There is a lot of work to do but we have value in the squad, high potentials.

The team is progressing and we are winning trophies.”

Manchester United will face Manchester City in the 2024 FA Community Shield on Saturday, August 10.
