Talk about terrible timing for the Premier League powerhouse. On Saturday afternoon, Manchester United is set to take on Manchester City in the FA Cup Final. Before kickoff, though, some troubling news has already arrived.

According to Jacob Steinberg of The Guardian, manager Erik Ten Hag will be fired following Saturday's contest regardless of the result. How are the players supposed to focus with this news dropping like this?

Ten Hag had a successful first year in charge, finishing in the Top 4 and capturing the League Cup title. However, United finished eighth this year and the new ownership group looks ready for someone else to take charge. Ten Hag was hoping to get one more year with the club, but it doesn't look like that will be the case.
