Alan Shearer issues X-rated response to Man Utd fan who blasted Erik ten Hag question

After winning the FA Cup at Wembley on Saturday, Erik ten Hag was questioned by Alan Shearer and Gary Lineker on the BBC about his future as Manchester United manager.

After some fans criticized the BBC’s method of interviewing Erik ten Hag after Manchester United’s victory over Manchester City, Alan Shearer has responded to his detractors.

United won the FA Cup on Saturday at Wembley thanks to a strong performance that saw them defeat their rivals 2-1. By halftime, United was ahead 2-0 thanks to goals from Alejandro Garnacho and Kobbie Mainoo, and City’s late goal from Jeremy Doku was merely a consolation.

Ten Hag’s victory was somewhat marred by the rumors that he would be replaced by Sir Jim Ratcliffe regardless of the outcome, which caused him to prepare for the match. Ten Hag talked about the match and his future live on BBC One with Shearer, Gary Lineker, Wayne Rooney, and Micah Richards after winning the trophy.

When Lineker questioned the Dutchman about whether he knew that the match would be his final as United’s manager, the interview turned awkward. Shearer received some backlash on Twitter a few hours after he posted in an attempt to see how people were reacting to the coverage.

“The question to Ten Hag was uncalled for though,” a fan tweeted. After all, he just won the bloody FA Cup; you could have at least let him enjoy himself.” “What part didn’t you like?” retweeted an irate Shearer in response. Did I say your team was amazing today and deserved to win, or did I say you’ve been a complete jerk for most of the season?

When asked about his future as United’s manager, Ten Hag replied, “I don’t know,” to Lineker and Shearer. My only activity is getting my team ready and growing it. This project belongs to me. I can say that it was a mess when I arrived. We are better now. Not where we want to be, though.

“Trophy wins are the main goal of football. I want to play the best football possible—dynamic, attacking football—but ultimately, winning games and championships is what matters. That’s the mindset we introduced. We only had this one chance, and we took it. I’m incredibly proud of the staff and players.”

In his post-match press conference, Ten Hag delivered a direct message to Ratcliffe and the United administration: “I go somewhere else and win trophies, that’s what I’ve done my whole career.”

After turning down the opportunity to stay with Bayern Munich, Mirror Football has learned that Thomas Tuchel is certain he will be appointed to the United position. Representatives of former United coach Kieran McKenna have conversed with the team following his successful return to the Premier League with Ipswich. Following his departure from Chelsea, Mauricio Pochettino is also a target, and Graham Potter, the former Chelsea manager, has also recently been connected to United.
