Video: Martinez lifts Ten Hag in celebration after FA Cup final full-time whistle

Manchester United saw off Man City to win the FA Cup at Wembley on Saturday in an ideal way to finish the season.

It remains to be seen if the victory will help keep Ten Hag in the job, however, the focus now is on celebrating another trophy under the Dutchman.

A second piece of silverware in his two years as manager.

Goals from Alejandro Garnacho and Kobbie Mainoo ensured a memorable day in London for the Reds as we prevented Pep Guardiola’s side from doing the Double Double.

Immediate reactions on the full-time whistle

You could see how much it meant to everyone in the stadium at full-time. Lisandro Martinez, who performed brilliantly in the heart of defence, was straight onto Ten Hag as he lifted the manager and carried him onto the pitch in celebration.

The moment was captured by Neil Johnston on the BBC live blog.

Will this act as a changing point for United, a moment we remember forever after a challenging 2023/24 campaign? Only time will tell.
