Dutch professional football coach Erik Ten Hag has restored hope at Old Trafford after ending Manchester United's six-year-long trophy dry spell. The Red Devils on Sunday lifted the Ca;rabao cup after beating Newcastle 2-0 at Wembley. The victory, which Casemiro and Marcus Rashford engineered, was instrumental to the team and the fans at large.
Speaking to the press after the Carabao success, Erik Ten Hag admitted there is still hunger for more trophies at Old Trafford. He, nonetheless, pointed out that this is the beginning of restoring Manchester United to where it rightfully belongs.
“It is about glory and honour, and if you want to prove something and win something, you have to do it because no one is bringing something to you in top football... You have to win the first [trophy] and that is what we did today. You can take inspiration from this, but also more confidence... We are still at the start [of the process] to restore Man United to where they belong. We showed the right spirit – we fought and gave everything, as a team. It wasn’t always the best football but it was effective. There is a hunger and desire for trophies.” Ten Hag stated.
Ten Hag has decorated headlines for the better part of the season and faced criticism for his controversial managerial decisions, especially those relating to Cristiano Ronaldo and Harry Maguire. The Dutch football genius has now become the subject of praise among various football stakeholders.
Manchester United will now switch its focus to the English Premier League where they rank third with 49 points, just 8 points away from the League leaders Arsenal. Erik Ten Hag's performance might guarantee him a spot in the FA cup and Europa League. Regardless of how this season ends at Old Trafford, it will go down as one of the most successful ones for the team ever since Sir Alex Ferguson's reign
