This Question Caused Erik Ten Hag to Leave Press Conference

Erik ten Hag saw no point in answering a question about Manchester United’s position in the Premier League.

With calm movements and a serious expression, Erik ten Hag stood up and left the press conference after Saturday’s game against Bournemouth.

“I will not comment on that question. It’s not important at the moment,” stated the Manchester United manager bluntly.

The session, which was shared on X, shows that he clearly had no interest in discussing the risk of Manchester United finishing in a historically poor position in the Premier League.

After the 2-2 draw with Bournemouth, United is in seventh place with six games remaining. If the club finishes even one position lower, it will be United’s worst result in the Premier League era. Therefore, a journalist asked:

“Erik, there’s a risk of ending up in seventh place. If you drop below that, it would be the worst position ever for United in Premier League history. Do you think you are over…”

The journalist didn’t get to finish as Erik ten Hag, who finished third with United in his first season as manager of the club, cut him off.

It is already mathematically impossible for United to achieve the same position this season, and with ten points up to fourth place, it seems unlikely that the club will play in the Champions League after the summer break.

“We are entering the crucial phase of the season, and this is not enough. The truth is we didn’t deserve more today. Maybe in the end – but if you allow so many chances in the first half, you don’t deserve more,” says Erik ten Hag about Saturday’s 2-2 match to Sky Sports.

Manchester United’s worst position in a Premier League season to date was in the 2013/2014 season when they finished seventh.

Besides a fourth place, a fifth place, and three sixth places, Manchester United has finished first, second, or third every year since the first Premier League season in 1992/1993.
