Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag, delivered a passionate speech after his side's hard-fought 3-2 win against Newcastle United at Old Trafford on Wednesday, May 15.

The Dutch boss issued the rallying cry to the supporters amid boos ahead of the upcoming FA Cup final against Manchester City later this month.

This wasn't the first time the underfire manager had taken to the pitch for such an address.

He did so after the final home game of the previous season against Wolverhampton Wanderers. However, the impact wasn't as desired at Wembley, as United fell 2-1 to City, who eventually secured a historic treble.

Nevertheless, the 54-year-old is optimistic this time around.

What did ten Hag say in his post-match speech?

"The season is not over yet. Now, first, we will travel to Brighton for three points, and then we go to Wembley," the 54-year-old said, as quoted by United In Focus.

Continuing his speech, ten Hag vowed that his players would leave no stone unturned in their quest to overcome all obstacles and defeat their noisy neighbours to win the FA Cup.

"And I promise you that those players will give everything to get that cup, to win the cup, and bring it to Old Trafford."

He also described the supporters as the 'best in the world', highlighting their importance in the team's journey towards finding success again.

"And be assured, you will be there supporting us. Thank you - you are the best supporters in the world - thank you."

Was ten Hag booed at Old Trafford?

According to GOAL, the majority of the Old Trafford crowd applauded their head coach.

However, certain sections were heard booing the manager, although it remains unclear whether they were home fans or not.

Meanwhile, ten Hag's future in Manchester looks uncertain, with several reports suggesting that the club could part ways with him in the summer.

Rooney accuses ten Hag of 'insulting' players

Sports Brief earlier reported that Wayne Rooney slammed ten Hag for insulting United players following their loss to Arsenal.

The manager openly expressed disappointment in the team's performance, particularly criticising their attitude in his analysis.

Reflecting on ten Hag's remarks, Rooney felt United players should feel insulted by their manager questioning their passion.
