Transcript of Ten Hag press conference previewing 2023 FA Cup final

The manager sat down with journalists inside Carrington’s Jimmy Murphy Centre to analyse Saturday’s showpiece occasion at Wembley Stadium.

After providing injury updates on Antony and Anthony Martial, Ten Hag spoke confidently about our chances and looked forward to an enthralling derby.

There was also a word on striker Wout Weghorst, who might have an important role to play. Here, you can read every word from his press conference…

Hi, Erik. In terms of team news, is there any players that will be unavailable that we weren’t expecting? And will Antony Dos Santos be fit?
“Unlikely. Dos Santos still has a chance, but it’s a really small chance.”

Has there been a setback, because you seemed more positive the other day? 
“Yeah. He did make the progress. So what I say is he still has a chance, but either unlikely he is available.”

How much of a blow will that be for you and Anthony Martial, who I know hasn’t been available for you all season on a regular basis, but would have been a good option?
“Yeah, but as I said all the time, I have these questions so many times from you all media about absence from players in the last couple of months. And every time I say the same answer. It’s about the players who are available. And every time we were successful not every time, but a lot of times, many times we were successful. So we have a good squad and from a good squad we make a good team.”
