FA Cup Final: Man United Legend David Beckham Defends Erik ten Hag, Warns Man United Flops


Manchester United players have a chance to redeem themselves and restore the club’s pride at the end of the campaign.

Erk ten Hag’s gains on his debut campaign in the United dugout has been wiped off and eroded this term.

Battling with recurrent injuries and underperforming players, the Dutchman has come under the wires for spates of ludicrous and subpar performances that has seen the team crashed out of Europe, missed out of the Premier League title and top race, and also teeter on the brink of ending the season trophyless.

To Man United legends and pundits like Paul Scholes, Roy Keane and Rio Ferdinand, Erik ten Hag has to be shown the exit door as he seems clueless arresting the rot and tactical blunders that has sunk the team below their rivals.

However, another Man United legend, David Beckham, has begged to differ from the apparently popular opinions on Erik ten Hag and Manchester United.

Beckham seems to blame the club’s misfortunes on the players who have struggled for form.

Speaking in an interview with talkSPORT, the Inter Miami owner said Ten Hag has little to do as the players have to take responsibilities and deliver for the club’s badge.

He also charged the players to brace up and improve their game as they prepare for a rematch of the 2022/23 FA Cup final against cross-city rivals Manchester City.

“You’d hope that the manager doesn’t have to do much.

“I think that’s the whole point of being a Manchester United player and playing in these big games.

“You know you should be motivated when you’re a professional footballer and you’re doing the job that you love and you’re at the club that you love.

“Whether it’s a regular season game or whether it’s an FA Cup final against your rivals, that should be enough motivation.

“If it’s not then you’re in the wrong team and you’re playing the wrong sport.”

Away from their less-than-stellar campaign this season, Manchester United will have a chance to partly remedy the ruins when they take on Manchester City in the FA Cup final on May 25.

A win against the Premier League dominos and city rivals will be a morale-booster as they prepare to head into the next campaign with a reinvigorated squad.
