Erik ten Hag hopes lap of honour won't be his goodbye to Manchester United fans

Erik ten Hag does not regard Manchester United's final home game of the season as a goodbye to the Old Trafford crowd.

Ten Hag's future at United is uncertain as new co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe has not confirmed whether the Dutchman will remain in charge beyond this season.

United host Newcastle United on Wednesday night before their final Premier League match of the campaign away to Brighton on Sunday. United's season ends with a second successive all-Manchester FA Cup final against City at Wembley on Saturday week.

Ten Hag confirmed United will embark on a lap of honour at the conclusion of the Newcastle match after United enjoyed raucous support from their travelling and home supporters in their defeats to Crystal Palace and Arsenal last week.

When asked if the Newcastle match would be a "goodbye to Old Trafford" for him, Ten Hag replied: "Goodbye for me? It’s not how I feel it and how I see it. It is not the way I go to start that lap of honour for the fans, no. The answer to the questions you made so often: same answer.

"Through good times and bad times we are together and the fans show it, that we are together. So we will do a lap of honour."

Ten Hag reiterated he feels the fans are behind him. "In the stadium, away and home, they are always backing the team and backing me.

"Also when I’m in the streets, many many come to me - maybe it is just polite but I don’t feel it like this. I almost never get a negative reaction because the fans understand where we are.

"The fans understand this club is in a transition and the fans understand the huge problems we’ve had to face and especially positions in key areas."
