After a last-minute winner secured Manchester United’s place in the FA Cup quarter-finals, club legend Wayne Rooney offered his opinion on Erik ten Hag’s future at Old Trafford.

A crucial header from Casemiro, assisted by a Bruno Fernandes free kick, set up a mouth-watering clash with Liverpool in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup next month.

The win is massive for Erik ten Hag, who has had a turbulent second season as Manchester United manager as he struggles to find form in the Premier League and has been knocked out of all other cup competitions.

United legend and former club captain Wayne Rooney has weighed in on Ten Hag’s situation in the immediate aftermath of the victory.

Rooney said: “A lot is made about Erik ten Hag’s position, but he has been doing OK. We are starting to see more consistency, and I think he will get time.

“It is a massive victory and not the best of games. Both sides missed good chances, but that’s a big win for Manchester United.

“You want big players to have big moments and Bruno Fernandes and Casemiro combined at the end.”

Manchester United will welcome Liverpool to Old Trafford in the next round of the FA Cup on the weekend of 16 March.
