On Friday, reports came from The Guardian that Manchester United had decided to offload the Dutch coach. Later that evening there were leaks regarding the lineup.

– Far from reality

However, he realizes that things have not been good enough lately.

– Let me be clear: it was bad. It was crap. But after all that, we will be playing the FA Cup final, says Ten Hag about the season.

It is believed that there are unrealistic expectations attached to Manchester United.

– Manchester United last won the league in 2013. It's been 11 years. However, they expect us to win every game and fight at the top. The club is not ready for this. The idea was that we should start building something, and we took the first steps last year. But then you realize how big the club really is, and that some people are never satisfied, says Ten Hag.

– Inside the club, people were happy, but outside there was noise that I “only” won the League Cup and lost the FA Cup final and finished third. So you are out of touch with reality. The other Cubs had a much better booth.

– INEOS is going to shake things up, and some projects are already underway. Carrington would be destroyed and a new training facility would come.

Furthermore, Ten Hag talks about the changes he wants in the stable.

-We have to sign an additional striker this summer. If we can also sign a midfielder and a replacement for (Raphael) Varane, things will look good again. If the players remain injury free, we can try to target the top four again.
