Manchester United have reportedly made a decision on Erik ten Hag's future at the club amid calls to have him sacked before the FA Cup final.

The Dutchman led the Red Devils to the final of the tournament on Sunday for the second consecutive season after defeating Coventry on post-match penalties.

However, Metro UK reports that his tactics came into question during the Wembley cracker, with a section of fans and pundits concerned in the matter of which United qualified.

The Premier League giants looked in control of the tie, only for them to surrender a 3-0 advantage to draw 3-3 in normal time.

Scott McTominay, Harry Maguire, and Bruno Fernandes were all on target before Coventry staged a dramatic comeback to force the match into extra time and, ultimately, penalty shootouts.

The outcome of the match was reminiscent of United's recent pattern of collapsing under pressure, a trend that has impacted their chances of qualifying for the Champions League.

Will Man United sack ten Hag before the final?

Reports now claim that United chiefs have made a decision on calls to have ten Hag sacked before the end of the season.

According to The Guardian, the club have no intention of sacking the Dutchman before the end of the season.

The development means the former Ajax boss will be in the dugout when the Red Devils take on Manchester City in the final of the FA Cup in May.

The final will be a repeat of last season, when City beat United in the competition en route to winning a historic treble.

The Old Trafford dwellers will be back in action on Wednesday night when they will take on relegation-bound Sheffield United in the Premier League.

Man United identify ten Hag's replacement

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that club co-owner, Sir Jim Ratcliffe, has reportedly identified Manchester United's next manager.

Despite securing a spot in the FA Cup final, management is said to be concerned about how the team played against Coventry.
