Following the bad performance of Manchester United in the recently concluded season, the Red Devils’ manager Erik Ten Hag revealed his future plans amid talks of his replacement.

In a post-match conference on Saturday, after Manchester United triumphed surprisingly over Manchester City in the FA Cup final, the 54-year-old said: "Two trophies in two years is not bad, three finals in two years is not bad."

The Dutchman said, pointing toward the Man Utd’s owners that if they ousted him, he would be winning trophies for some other club.

Man Utd listed FA Cup trophy at Wembley Stadium in London after winning 2-1.

Erik ten Hag further added that he was still uncertain whether he was going to stay at the Old Trafford in the upcoming season.

Either way, he indicated that will continue to win trophies, even if it's not for United.

"If they don't want me, then I go somewhere else to win trophies because that is what I do."

Man Utd finished eighth in the Premier League in the concluded season, and the owners of the English club have finalised potential candidates to substitute Ten Hag, according to ESPN.

The names include Thomas Tuchel, Mauricio Pochettino, Kieran McKenna, and Thomas Frank.

The manager said: "I am in a project and we are exactly where we want to be, we are constructing a team for the future. When I took over we were in a mess.”

"There is a lot of work to do but we have value in the squad, high potentials. The team is progressing and we are winning trophies."
