Man Utd manager Erik ten Hag says FA Cup reaction is ‘a disgrace’

Former Premier League striker Chris Sutton has been one of those to criticise the performance of Ten Hag’s side, saying there is “no coming back” for the Dutchman.

The FA Cup final against Manchester City next month will be Ten Hag’s second in two years as United manager, after they lost to their Manchester rivals in last season’s Wembley showpiece.

Asked if he understood the negative reaction to their narrow win against the Sky Blues, Ten Hag said: “No. Absolutely not.

“The reaction from you [the media] was embarrassing. Twice [two FA Cup finals] in two years, it is magnificent.

“For me as manager, four cup finals in four years. The comments are a disgrace.”

Ten Hag also added that reaching the final should be considered “over-performing” considering United’s problems with injuries.

“But we are not satisfied by being in the final, we want to win it and that is what we will go for and it’s our mentality.

“That is why we are successful. That’s why I am successful over 10 years as a

manager, I always bring out the maximum of each squad.”
