Erik ten Hag bans journalists from asking questions

26/04/24 14:50

Erik ten Hag has banned three newspapers from asking questions at his Manchester United press conference after they were “disrespectful” following the Red Devils’ win over Coventry City in the FA Cup semi-final last weekend.

The Manchester United boss has refused to take questions from The Sun, The Mirror, and Manchester Evening News in Friday’s press conference ahead of his team’s game against Burnley.

The journalists were allowed to listen in but were made aware beforehand that the Dutchman would not be taking questions from them.

Days after the FA Cup semi-final, Ten Hag described the media’s reaction as “embarrassing” and “a disgrace”.

He also defended the actions of Antony, who appeared to provoke the Coventry City players immediately after Rasmus Højlund converted the winning spot kick.

In the aftermath of the win, one Manchester Evening News reporter took to social media to call for Ten Hag to be sacked, writing: “Ten Hag cannot survive this. He has to go ASAP.”

Ten Hag had previously banned four media outlets from asking questions in one of his press conferences in December, prior to a game against Chelsea, after it was revealed that he was facing trouble in the dressing room.
