Ten Hag vows to save Man Utd project by winning FA Cup



Erik ten Hag has vowed to win the FA Cup and carry on with his Manchester United project as the under-fire boss prepares for Saturday’s final against Manchester City.

Ten Hag is battling to save his job amid mounting speculation that United’s new co-owner Jim Ratcliffe plans to axe him after a turbulent season.

United finished eighth in the Premier League — their lowest final position since 1990 — and crashed out of the Champions League in the group stage.

The Dutch coach, who led United to their first trophy in six years when they won the League Cup last season, also clashed with Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford, reportedly creating a rift in the dressing room.

United have been linked with England boss Gareth Southgate, former Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino, departing Bayern Munich boss Thomas Tuchel and Ipswich chief Kieran McKenna.

But Ten Hag is convinced he can turn the tide by securing United’s first FA Cup triumph since 2016, in the process avenging last season’s loss to City at the same stage of the competition and ensuring his club qualify for Europe.

Asked on Thursday if the final could be his last match as United manager, Ten Hag laughed and told reporters: “I have nothing to say. I’m just focusing on the job I have to do.

“That is first to win the game on Saturday and then we are in the project. Keep going in the project.

“After every season you review it and see where you are in the project and what things may need to change.

“We spoke lately about it. There are players developing and values going up.”

City were crowned Premier League champions for an unprecedented fourth successive season last weekend, giving them six titles in seven years.
