Man Utd bans three newspapers from questioning Erik ten Hag at press conference.

Erik ten Hag is under pressure at Manchester United. Three media outlets, The Sun, Manchester Evening News (MEN), and The Mirror, were banned from questioning Erik ten Hag in his latest press conference. This came after the Manchester United manager clashed with journalists following his team’s FA Cup tie with Coventry, particularly objecting to suggestions that the manner of his side’s shootout win was an embarrassment.

Ahead of the home game with Burnley, the club took a stance in Ten Hag’s pre-match press conference by not allowing questions from the banned media outlets, in protest against the manner of their reporting. After the semi-final win, a MEN reporter took to social media to call for the sacking of Erik ten Hag, expressing the belief that he cannot survive the situation and has to be let go as soon as possible. Despite the turmoil, Ten Hag is preparing for a third cup final in two seasons since leaving Ajax, as Manchester United is set to face Man City at Wembley.

He has remained defiant, emphasizing the team’s focus on winning trophies and not just reaching the final. Ten Hag defended his record and expressed his determination to strive for victory, stating that United’s success is rooted in their pursuit of trophies. These recent developments contribute to the growing media perception that Ten Hag is under strain as he aims to prevent Manchester United from experiencing their worst ever finish to a Premier League season.
