On top of that it also seems that the future of Ten Hag with the team could actually change if he is able to at least reach the FA Cup final.

"There was a time when I missed a penalty [against Middlesbrough in the FA Cup] and after that, he kept speaking to me and telling me, ‘It’s not the end of the world, I’ve missed loads before and you’ve shown character and professionalism taking one at your age.’" Elanga remembered as the advice from Cristiano Ronaldo. Now it seems that Elanga is more than ready to face his former team.

Anthony Elanga said on that, "For me, it’s about showing I can do it against any team. Especially coming up against your old team you want to show them even more that you can do it." he was one of the players that Ten Hag decided not to give a chance to, now he is ready to prove him wrong.

"I feel I need to keep in my lane and keep doing what I’m doing. The people on the outside don’t know me so I don’t listen to the external noise. I just stay inside and try and keep improving." Elanga ended ahead of the FA Cup game. The red devils office has made the idea to reach the final of this competition one of the main goals this season.
