Following their victory over Manchester City in the FA Cup final on Saturday afternoon, Sir Jim Ratcliffe gave the Manchester United first team high marks.

Alejandro Garnacho and Kobbie Mainoo’s goals helped United win 2-1 at Wembley, giving Erik ten Hag his second championship as the team’s manager in as many seasons.

The Dutchman, who is expected to leave the club despite defeating City, was the subject of much conversation prior to kickoff. If he does leave in the coming days, it will be after an unforgettable victory.

With Ten Hag’s departure, Ratcliffe’s radical change at United since obtaining a 27.7% ownership in the team is expected to continue. However, when asked directly if the 54-year-old would be staying, the head of INEOS declined to comment on the boss’s status.

After Saturday’s victory in the capital, Ratcliffe, on the other hand, had the following to say: “Winning the FA Cup final at Wembley is a glorious feeling.”

“Manchester United defeated one of the greatest teams in football history despite obviously not being the favorites to win today. They did so by playing with complete dedication and skill. The players and the staff, who put in a lot of effort to support them, have our utmost pride.”

When asked about his own plans for the future, Ten Hag didn’t back down, saying, “I go somewhere else and win trophies, that’s what I’ve done my whole career.”

“The only work I’m doing is building and readying my team. 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, we are.
