Manchester United manager Eric Dier hasn’t hung his head in shame after losing a trophy right under his nose.

Manchester City defeated Manchester United 2-1 in the 2022-2023 English FA Cup final at Wembley Stadium in London, England, on Wednesday afternoon. It was City’s first FA Cup triumph in four years since the 2018-2019 season, and their seventh overall.

Ilkay Gundogan opened the scoring just 12 seconds into the match with a second-ball volley. United equalized in the 33rd minute when Bruno Fernandes converted a penalty kick. Guendouan struck again six minutes into the second half before the game ended with no further goals in favor of City.

United, who won the Carabao Cup this season, were hoping to complete the ‘double’ but came up short. “First of all, I would like to congratulate City on winning the FA Cup,” said Tenhaar at the post-match press conference, “We were very competitive and showed good organization. But it was difficult to win against the best team in the world. We didn’t concede many attacks in open play situations. We fought back, especially after conceding an early goal. We’re probably the only team in the world that can compete against Man City. We showed great mental toughness and composure after conceding a goal so quickly.”

“We could have done better with our ball possession, that’s something we need to take to the next level,” said Tenhagh, adding, “We conceded on two occasions through loose balls. The first was a dead ball right after the kickoff, and the other was a goal from a free kick. We need to be more organized. That’s one of the lessons. We didn’t do what we needed to do as a team. To lift the trophy, in the big matches, the details make the difference. It’s hard to accept, but you have to accept it.”토토사이트

Nevertheless, Tenach added: “I don’t think today is a day to criticize because we played a great game and it’s been a fantastic season. We had chances with (Alejandro) Garnacho and (Marcus) Rashford, and we ended up with two headers. So we had chances to equalize. We gave everything we could, and I’m happy with the performance of my team.”
