WATCH: ten Hag calls media ’embarrassing’ for reaction to FA Cup semi-final with Coventry

Erik ten Hag branded the media a “disgrace” and “embarrassing” for the reaction to his Manchester United side’s penalty shoot-out victory over Coventry City to reach the FA Cup final.

United threw away a three-goal lead in their FA Cup semi-final against Championship Coventry but prevailed on penalties to reach the final in consecutive seasons.

Afterwards, ten Hag insisted he was “not embarrassed” by the collapse which saw his side face extra-time and penalties and ahead of their Premier League clash with Sheffield United, has hit out the media for their reaction to the game.

“No, I absolutely can’t understand the reaction [from the media],” Ten Hag said.

“You asked the question: ‘Was it embarrassing?’ No, the reaction from you was embarrassing.

“We were very lucky in the end with the penalties, but we made it to the final and that is a huge achievement. Twice in two years is magnificent. For me as a manager, four cup finals in four years.

“So, the comments are a disgrace.”
