Ten Hag said there were several difficult decisions ahead of the FA Cup final

Jakarta (ANTARA) – Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag said “there are several difficult decisions to make” ahead of the FA Cup final against Manchester City at Wembley Stadium, Saturday at 9pm WIB.

Ten Hag said this was because many of his injured players returned to the team apart from Harry Maguire who was still absent, so it was difficult for him to decide who to start, and also whether to bring in Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane. in defense and Casemiro returns to midfield.

Then whether he will play against Rasmus Hojlund from the start and whether there is still a chance for Amad Diallo in the right wing role after the player played impressively in the last few games.

“I said I have a luxury problem, even just making the lineup, maybe even sitting on the bench,” Ten Hag said on Saturday, as quoted by the club’s official website.

“So we were able to give Licha Martinez the last game and some minutes to Rapha Varane. We gave him some minutes. Victor Lindelof we couldn’t, but he also returned to training,” he continued.

“Anthony Martial, we haven’t given him any minutes, but he’s also training. “So we have a choice, and I would almost say I have a luxury problem, but I have some choices to make,” he added.

Meanwhile, however, Pep Guardiola’s team seems to be in good health, apart from Ederson who is absent due to a fractured eye socket.

In the goalkeeping position, City will field Stefan Ortega as a starter, just as happened in last year’s FA Cup final.
