Erik ten Hag walked out of his Manchester United press conference on Saturday evening after his side drew 2-2 against Bournemouth.

United were fortunate to come away with a point at the Vitality Stadium after a late VAR call rejected a penalty appeal from the Cherries.

Bruno Fernandes scored a brace that was enough to secure the draw, but Ten Hag’s side was not good enough throughout the game to get anything more.

That now means that Ten Hag’s team has won just one of its last seven Premier League games during a period when it was supposed to be closing in on the Champions League spots.

After the game, the Dutch boss took part in his post-match press conference with journalists at the stadium and left early after a question irritated him.

Post-match press conferences are regularly around 10 minutes for Ten Hag, but this one was cut short after just over five minutes.

Whilst it appeared that the conference was cut short anyway, Ten Hag appeared less than impressed by the last question he received.

United are now in seventh place in the Premier League table, and if they move any lower, Ten Hag could beat David Moyes to the club’s worst-place finish in the competition’s history.

A journalist asked Ten Hag about this after the Bournemouth draw.

The journalist said, “Erik, there’s a danger that you get caught in seventh place, and if you fall below seventh, that would be the worst finish in Premier League history for United. Do you think you’re going to be above…”

Ten Hag replied, as he begun to stand up and leave the press conference room, “I don’t comment on that question, that is not important for this moment.”

The manager will need to look ahead to the FA Cup semi-final against Coventry City, with the competition being United’s only chance of saving the season.
