Bruno Fernandes raises possibility of leaving Manchester United

Bruno Fernandes raises possibility of leaving Manchester United

[ad_1] Bruno Fernandes says he will consider his future this summer and that staying at Manchester United will be down to his club wanting him. As revealed by Telegraph Sport this week, United will consider offers for almost all of their squad this summer apart from a clutch of rising stars, and Fernandes has left the door open to a move. “Obviously, it doesn’t just depend on me, does it?” he said. “A player always has to want to be here, but at the same time, you have to want him to stay. At the moment, I feel there’s that on both sides. “I’m not thinking too much about the future, not least because, obviously, this season hasn’t been at the level I’d hoped for, either individually or collectively, so far. “So, if you want me to be very honest, if I have to think about not continuing in the Premier League, it won’t be until after the Euros because nothing will be able to take my focus away from the FA Cup final and …

What time is it and what TV channel is it on?

[ad_1] The stage for the FA Cup final is set, and it’s going to be a Manchester derby for the second time in as many years. This year Manchester United reached the final thanks to a sketchy victory over Coventry City. The Championship team were 3-0 down deep into the second half of their semi-final only to score goals in the 71st, 79th and 95th minute. In extra time the underdogs thought they had the match won only for their winning goal to be ruled out for a marginal offside. Manchester United went on to win the tie in a penalty shoot-out.  In the other semi-final, Bernardo Silva scored the only goal as Manchester City beat Chelsea. The victory came just three days after Silva had missed a vital penalty in City’s Champions League quarter-final defeat to Real Madrid.  Should Manchester United win it would be their 13th FA Cup title and Erik ten Hag’s second trophy during his time at the club, after the League Cup victory last season.  If City win, it will …

Erik ten Hag labels reaction to Manchester United’s Coventry win ’embarrassing’ and a ‘disgrace’

Erik ten Hag labels reaction to Manchester United’s Coventry win ’embarrassing’ and a ‘disgrace’

[ad_1] Ten Hag admitted Antony should not have acted in such fashion but revealed that his behaviour was a reaction to early provocation from Coventry players. “Did you see the reaction of Harry Maguire?” Ten Hag asked. “He [Antony] was provoked. This was a reaction to that. You haven’t seen the provocation, you only saw the reaction. But he should not do it. “But I have also seen Harry Maguire straight after and others. We should acknowledge the performance from Coventry to come into that final and come back. We are for 70 minutes totally dominating the game by far and creating many chances and 3-0 must have been the game closed. But the return from their side was very good.” United play bottom club Sheffield United at Old Trafford on Wednesday night when Ten Hag could be without at least 12 senior players after his squad was further decimated by injuries sustained against Coventry. Ten Hag has doubts over Scott McTominay and Marcus Rashford and hopes Alejandro Garnacho and Bruno Fernandes can recover from …

Score and latest updates from FA Cup semi-final

Score and latest updates from FA Cup semi-final

[ad_1] This morning I overheard a Manchester United fan say to a friend that today’s FA Cup semi-final was a “lose-lose game”. His thinking was that either they actually lose to Championship side Coventry and get all the criticism that understandably comes with such a defeat. Or they beat Coventry to set up a pasting at the hands of rivals Man City in the final. It’s not exactly positive is it? But going on this season it’s not hard to understand why that Man Utd fan didn’t exactly feel in a glass-half-full kind of mood. It’s been a season full of disappointing results, and, Sir Jim Ratcliffe coming in to run the football operations aside, devoid of hope, the one thing football fans need more than most. Defeat today would be one of the big semi-final shocks – for all their problems United are still big favourites to make the final, and could possibly push Erik ten Hag nearer the exit door. They head into the match with three draws and a defeat from their …

Latest updates and build-up from the Premier League

Latest updates and build-up from the Premier League

[ad_1] Good evening and welcome to live coverage of the Premier League match between Chelsea vs Manchester United, both of whom have Cup semi-finals the weekend after next as opportunities to take something positive from poxy seasons. They start the game in 12th and sixth respectively but this fixture, which was this competition’s defining match for a good 10 years from 2003-13, has recently been a drab affair and rather one sided. Chelsea have not won home or away in the league against Man Utd since 2017-18, losing five and drawing seven which include one defeat and four draws at the Bridge. Chelsea, who lost 2-1 at Old Trafford in December, are unbeaten in their last five league matches but have hardly been convincing, provoking something that looks and smells like mutiny among their supporters in the midst of draws with Brentford and Burnley during that run not to mention the howls of exasperation and derision when they were pinned back to 2-2 by Leicester in the Cup quarter-final before ultimately squeaking victory late on. …

Beating Liverpool can secure ten Hag’s Man Utd future

Beating Liverpool can secure ten Hag’s Man Utd future

[ad_1] United can beat most teams and still face criticism if the performance is not up to scratch, as was the case against Everton last weekend. When United face Liverpool, it is always about the result. The two clubs’ position as England’s most successful means there is more emotion around these meetings than any in the fixture calendar, only the city derbies getting close. Winning feels more satisfying and losing stings more. Managerial changes have often followed the realisation one club has fallen too far behind their north-west neighbour, and particularly poor showings in this fixture for coaches who are already under pressure have a habit of setting the stopwatch for the end of a reign. Brendan Rodgers’ fate was sealed after defeat by United in September 2015, as it later emerged FSG had their first meetings with Klopp in New York shortly after. Jose Mourinho was sacked as United manager after defeat at Anfield in 2018, the hot-blooded reaction to being outplayed demanding immediate reassurance to the fanbase a change of directions was afoot. …
