Erik ten Hag to stay as Man United manager at least until FA Cup final clash with Man City

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag won’t be sacked before the FA Cup final despite the defeat at Crystal Palace threatening European qualification.

According to Telegraph Sport, United have no intention of sacking the Dutchman before the big game against Manchester City on May 25.

Ten Hag’s future hangs in the balance after a shambolic 4-0 defeat to Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

The Red Devils have won only once in the last five league games, putting them in eighth place. They are two points behind sixth-placed Newcastle United.

With only three games remaining, Man United could fail to qualify for the Europa League.

Their last three league fixtures are against Arsenal, Newcastle United and Brighton & Hove Albion. All three teams have enough firepower to beat the Red Devils.

United are set to clash with Man City in the FA Cup final later this month.

The result of that highly-anticipated game could play a pivotal role in determining Ten Hag’s immediate future.

If United suffer an embarrassing defeat, it would be difficult for co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe to back the Dutchman. 

Thomas Tuchel has been linked with a move to Old Trafford to replace Ten Hag. The former Chelsea manager is set to leave Bayern Munich this summer.

There is sympathy for Ten Hag due to several injuries suffered by his players. However, defeat in the FA Cup final could force the new owners to swing the axe.
