How Man United co-owner reacted when asked about Ten Hag



Erik ten Hag stops Bruno Fernandes' interview

Sir Jim Ratcliffe was asked about the future of Erik ten Hag as Manchester United manager shortly after the team’s 2-1 FA Cup final victory over Manchester City, and his reaction has sparked significant discussion among fans.

Manchester United secured their first trophy of the season with goals from academy graduates Kobbie Mainoo and Alejandro Garnacho, complemented by a strong tactical and defensive performance. This win has also guaranteed them a place in the Europa League next season.

Heading into the final, Ten Hag was under intense scrutiny following an eighth-placed finish in the Premier League, which provisionally left United out of European competition altogether. Reports from The Guardian suggested that the Dutchman was on the verge of being sacked.

Despite the speculation, Ten Hag’s team delivered a crucial FA Cup victory, adding a second trophy to his tenure at United.

In the mixed zone, when asked about Ten Hag’s future, United minority co-owner Ratcliffe’s reaction drew attention. Ratcliffe glanced at the reporter but remained silent and proceeded towards the dressing room without a word, leaving fans speculating on social media.

Later, Ratcliffe commented on United’s performance and the FA Cup win, saying,

“It is a glorious feeling. Manchester United clearly were not the favourites to win, but played with total commitment and skill and overcame one of the great teams in world football. We’re all very proud of the players and the staff, who work tirelessly to support them.”

Ratcliffe’s non-answer about Ten Hag’s future has left fans eagerly awaiting more clarity on the manager’s position at the club.
