FA Cup winners! Reds claim club's 13th triumph

Saturday 25 May 2024 17:02

Manchester United are FA Cup winners for the 13th occasion in the club's history after beating Manchester City 2-1 in the 2024 final at Wembley Stadium.

The Reds will now enter the Europa League next season, as a reward for winning English football's most famous knockout competition for the first time since 2016.

First-half goals from two United Academy graduates, Alejandro Garnacho and Kobbie Mainoo, in the 30th and 39th minutes respectively put the Reds in control of the showpiece occasion.

Although City substitute Jeremy Doku pulled one back for the Premier League champions in the 87th minute, Erik ten Hag's men defended valiantly through the remainder of the game to see out a triumph that some pundits had thought unlikely in the build-up.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe said: "It is a glorious feeling to win the FA Cup final at Wembley. Manchester United clearly were not the favourites to win today but they played with total commitment and skill and overcame one of the great teams in football. We are all very proud of the players and the staff who work tirelessly to support them."

Erik ten Hag commented: "After a year with so many setbacks and injuries, the team showed so much resilience and I am so proud of them. I am proud of the fans too. They are incredible. We have the best fans in the world."
Bruno Fernandes held the FA Cup aloft as United captain and said afterwards: "It was our last chance to get something positive from the season.

"Last year, we were not good enough go up the stairs and lift the trophy, so we had to see them doing that. This season is the other way around.

"We had to suffer, we had to sacrifice, but we also had to put some quality into the game. And we did great things."
