Manchester United lifted a 13th FA Cup after beating rivals Manchester City in the final on Saturday. 

Having lost to the Citizens in last season’s final, United went into this campaign’s showpiece as underdogs but goals from Alejandro Garnacho and Kobbie Mainoo put them in a deserved lead.

Substitute Jeremy Doku got City on the scoresheet after the break, but the Premier League champions couldn’t find an equaliser.

Despite their success at Wembley, United boss Erik ten Hag continues to be the subject of speculation, with rumours suggesting that he could still be sacked despite winning a second trophy at the club.

One name that had been heavily touted as a possible successor to Ten Hag is Ipswich Town boss Kieran McKenna, but it appears that the Northern Irishman could be set to stay put at Portman Road.

As per The Athletic, McKenna is set to sign a new long-term contract with the Tractor Boys, ending speculation that he could depart.

The 38-year-old has been linked with both Chelsea and Brighton and Hove Albion, as well as United, but the report claims that he is instead set to commit his future to the newly-promoted side.

McKenna took charge of Ipswich in December 2021 and has since guided the Tractor Boys to successive promotions, seeing the club return to the Premier League for the first time in two decades.

Previously he had worked on the coaching staff at Man United, working as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s assistant prior to his departure in 2021.

His current deal with Town is set to run until the end of next season, but the report claims that he will now sign new terms and take charge of the club in the Premier League next term.
