Erik ten Hag has sent a strong message to fans who have called INEOS to sack the manager from Manchester United this summer.

Manchester United have not had a good season. Out of the Champions League and Carabao Cup earlier this season and seventh in the Premier League table, Erik ten Hag has not had a good campaign.

Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final, despite the win, was nothing to shout about either. Having blown a 3-0 lead with 20 minutes to play and only being able to win on penalties after a 120+1st-minute winner from Coventry City was ruled out for a very tight offside called by VAR is not an achievement.

However, this is now what Erik ten Hag thinks. Speaking to ITV after the game, Ten Hag sent a message to United fans as he explained he feels getting to the FA Cup final is a huge achievement and that getting to the final for the second time in a row is something to be proud of.

This is despite fans calling for Sir Jim Ratcliffe to sack the Dutchman after the penalties had been concluded.

It’s a huge achievement,” the boss explained. “A decade ago, a big Manchester United team only achieved the final three times. We do it twice in two years.”

He did admit that he is unhappy with the way United allowed Coventry to force their way back into the game despite being 3-0 down.

“We had control for 75 minutes and have to give Coventry a compliment for what they did in the last 15 minutes,” Ten Hag continued. “We have to improve. We talk a lot about this.

“First, you have to put yourself in a winning position, but then you have to take it over the line. In these moments we are making mistakes and not keeping our responsibilities.”
