However, ten Hag could present a compelling argument by underscoring the financial gains he secured for United. Winning the FA Cup earned the club £2 million, twice the amount for runners-up.

Furthermore, the victory secured United a spot in the Europa League, offering additional financial incentives. Participation in the Europa League guarantees €4.31 million, with each win in the league phase worth €450,000 and draws bringing in €150,000. Even a modest performance could result in approximately €2 million in prize money.

Apart from Europa League earnings, Manchester United will host at least four more home matches at Old Trafford. According to football finance expert Kieran Maguire, the club earns around £3.3 million in pure profit per home match day, translating to an additional £13.2 million in revenue.
